the salmon arts council created the salmon arts academy in 2008 to promote "hands on" learning experiences in the arts. We offer opportunities for both youth and adults to learn new techniques and skills in all aspects of the arts including fine arts, performing and literary. The arts academy provides a unique platform for the salmon arts council to provide financial support to local and regional artists by hiring them to teach classes.
