In addition to the robust schedule of classes that meet throughout the year at AAC, we offer other educational programs both on and off our site.

Enrichment Classes at Your School: AAC offers a variety of enrichment classes at local elementary schools in Arlington and Alexandria. Contact us if you are interested in enrichment programming for your school.

Private Art Instruction: AAC offers students of all ages the opportunity to work one-on-one with our professional instructors. This opportunity allows you to develop an individualized plan designed to meet your personal artistic goals. If you are interested in private instruction, please contact our staff at

Tuition Assistance: At AAC, we believe that high-quality art education should be accessible to all. We strive to ensure that our tuition is competitively priced, but we understand that not everyone can afford AAC’s tuition fees. Therefore, AAC offers scholarships that can reduce tuition between 25 to 90% for qualified applicants. To apply, please complete our Tuition Assistance Application Form and return it to along with your most recent 1040 tax return so that AAC staff can determine your eligibility. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis throughout the year. All members of a single family are potentially eligible to receive assistance, and students can register for one art class per semester with the reduced tuition.

Field Trips: School groups are encouraged to visit our galleries! Visiting students learn about contemporary art, and then engage in an art workshop inspired by our current exhibitions.

Group Tours: Group tours of AAC’s exhibitions are available subject to staff availability. Inspired by what you see in the galleries? For an additional fee, we can add a 45-minute art workshop following the tour, with one of our instructors leading a project related to the work in our galleries. No art experience required!

Birthday Parties: Celebrate your child’s birthday here at AAC with an individually-tailored art workshop. Please visit Birthday Parties to learn more.
