Arts+ provides arts education, including music and visual arts, to all ages. The organization offers group classes, workshops, private lessons and camps. Arts+ is the home of Charlotte Children’s Choir.
It’s offering some free and cheap classes. Except the one event at Resident Culture Brewing, which is noted, all of these events take place at The Bridge.
