“I have always wanted my art to service my people — to reflect us, to relate to us, to stimulate us, to make us aware of our potential. We have to create an art for liberation and for life.”
—Elizabeth Catlett (1915-2012)
Winston-Salem Delta Fine Arts, Inc. is rooted in sharing the arts of African Americans through our exhibition program, tours, and educational programs.
School & Community Tours
Teachers and community groups are encouraged to use our exhibitions as a means to explore and experience art. Guided tours will be led by our knowledgeable staff and include open ended discussion questions to encourage students to think critically about looking, interpreting, and appreciating art. Tours can be arranged in advance by calling 722-2625. Please limit groups to 40 people and provide 1 chaperone for every 12 students.
Periodically, workshops are offered to K-12 students by our exhibiting artists. School and community groups may inquire with staff to see when the next workshops will be offered or if you are interested in creating your own. Costs per person will vary depending on workshop offered.
