FACS

Dedicated to providing quality fine arts instruction to the community since 1993, BC’s Fine Arts Community School (FACS) is a community service outreach program that enables local families and students of all ages and interests, including home-schoolers, to explore and study the arts with the guidance of mentors and professionals who have appropriate training and experience. Expanding beyond the arts in recent years, FACS also offers instruction in a variety of other trades and skills to reach an even broader audience of those who enjoy learning and experiencing new interests.

FACS offers classes, lessons, programs, and workshops each semester during the academic year, along with week-long camps during the summer. View the current private lessons below, or click the calendar link to see all other current opportunities.
