Carroll County Arts strives to exhibit, educate and inspire creativity, imagination, and an appreciation for the arts. We have been a part of the community since 1993 with hundreds of people supporting the arts by volunteering and becoming members. This support has made it possible for Carroll County Arts to present many wonderful exhibits and to build a collection of art by local artists into an extensive visual art gallery and gift shop. Carroll County Arts also provides an outlet for the creative spirit of our community through classes and workshops and concerts. Just as important as the exhibits and art classes is the impact our non-profit organization makes on the community through its education and outreach programs. Whether you are interested in taking a class, shopping the gallery, attending a concert or sharing YOUR talents, contact Carroll County Arts and we will help you find where you belong!

Newcomers are always welcome---the instructors are from Stark County and have won many local, regional, national and international awards for their work. Carving tools are available to use and to purchase, if you wish. All ages are welcome---in fact the class ages range from age 9 to 86.
The Kidz Klass on the third Saturday will be Paper Sculpture. The class begins at 10:00 AM and lasts approximately an hour, sometimes longer depending on the project. It is geared for 3rd grade through middle school, but younger children can participate if they have an adult to assist them. The fee is $5 but it can be paid the morning of the class. The instructor would appreciate students registering so there will be enough material for each participant.
The Carroll County Chorale has begun rehearsals for the Christmas season at the First Presbyterian Church in Carrollton. All voices are needed---particularly sopranos and basses. There is no audition nor residency requirement---just a love of singing and support for one of the arts. Rehearsals begin at 7:00 PM.
