Pullen Arts Center is located on the north side of Pullen Park, across the street from N.C. State's Bell Tower and next door to Theatre in the Park and the Gregg Museum. Since 1961, Pullen Arts Center has served as an arts education facility for artists of all skill levels.

Currently, Pullen Arts Center is closed as the center undergoes a complete renovation and expansion. While closed, we hope you will enjoy the studios at Sertoma Arts Center or sign up for classes offered by Pullen Arts instructors at Glen Eden Neighborhood Center.

Gallery/Exhibit Program

Following closure for a complete renovation and expansion, Pullen Arts Center will host exhibitions in its newly renovated gallery spaces in 2021.

Pottery Program

Pullen Arts Center's Pottery Program is not operating at another location during the renovation. We encourage potters to check out one of the great studios in the area – like Sertoma Arts Center, N.C. State's Crafts Center, and Cary Arts Center – while we are closed.

Catalyzing Creative Aging: People in Portraits

In this twelve-week program, participants work with an experienced teaching artist to explore techniques for creating images of the human face using drawing, painting, collage, and mixed media. Classes focus on hands-on art-making and include artist demonstrations, discussions of portraiture through history, and conversations about our own work. As the program progresses, participants create a self-portrait that will be displayed in an exhibition entitled “Who are We? Raleigh’s People in Portraits” at the end of the program. No previous art experience or ability required, and all materials are provided.

The daily camp schedule includes multimedia art projects that encourage creativity and promote the enjoyment of art, balanced with traditional camp activities. Each week is programmed differently and sign-up is available for one or multiple weeks.
