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 and fiber arts. We have a strong performing arts program that includes instruction in dance, drama, and music. Healthy mind and body meditative studies such as yoga, creative journaling, and bereavement support classes for families are popular, offering healing and opportunities to make new friends. We feature creative workshops, summer camps, exhibitions, and special events that are fun for the whole family. Our homeschool program fills an important need in the community providing students the opportunity to explore many cultural art experiences.

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!
