Summer Art Camp

Today ends the last week of our Summer Art Camps.  The AHCNA in partnership with the Jessye Norman School of the Arts did 3 weeks of week long morning and afternoon art camps.   At the end of the week, the kids got to show off their artwork to their parents and family.  In addition, when they had a few minutes they decorated our entrance by weaving in fabric in and out the railing making it very artsy.  Overall, the kids had a blast!

Permanent Exhibits

The Arts and Heritage Center of North Augusta (AHCNA) is a partner in the South Carolina National Heritage Corridor. As part of this partnership, the AHCNA has assumed ownership of the regional history exhibits from the SCNHCs former Discovery Center in Blackville, SC. By using these educational and technological exhibits, the visitor is introduced to the corridor, regional destinations and the region's character and history. The exhibits interpret Aiken, Bamberg, Barnwell and Orangeburg counties.

We rely solely upon these events, donations, memberships and grants to operate. We also have special member only events as well as lectures to increase your knowledge in regards to history and art.
