The Delaware County Cultural Arts Center, otherwise known as The Arts Castle, is a 501c3 non-profit organization dedicated to nurturing the creative energies of the residents of Delaware County and surrounding areas.

We offer a full array of artistic experiences including classes in painting, drawing, photography, ceramics, stained glass, jewelry, fiber and culinary arts. We have a strong performing arts program that includes instruction in dance, drama and music. We feature workshops, summer camps, exhibitions and special events that are fun for the whole family.

The Arts Castle was founded with a grassroots effort by the community, for the community. We are recognized as one of Ohio’s premier community teaching centers for the arts and continue a long standing tradition of excellence in our programming.

Volunteers are always needed. Give us a call at (740) 369-2787 to see what opportunities await you!
