The Duke University Office of the Vice Provost for the Arts (DukeArts) and University Center Activities and Events (UCAE) have worked with the Arts Annex, duARTS, VisARTS and Artstigators, to organize a new series of FREE workshops for students where they can learn and practice studio art techniques.
The DukeCreate Arts Workshop Series (calendar PDF) will include instruction in photography – digital and dark room, screen printing, ceramics, and painting and drawing. The workshops will start the first week of September and end in late November, in keeping with the academic calendar. Instruction will be offered by local arts professionals, MFA|EDA students and Duke faculty. The workshops will be held in a creative and supportive environment with an emphasis on skill development and practical experience.
The purpose of the workshops is to create an extracurricular educational experience, connect students with on-campus student arts organizations and opportunities, foster a forum for dialogue and dynamic community building in the arts on campus and with local arts organizations in the triangle area.
The workshops will also expose participants to the academic opportunities available in the arts on campus, including courses, majors, grants, independent study, internships, mentorships, and create collaborative interaction where students gain practical guidance about careers in the arts.

Spring Arts Festival at the Arts Annex
Join the Duke University Union Visual Arts Committee on Friday, March 29 from 3-6pm at the Arts Annex (404 Gattis Street) to celebrate the unveiling of the new Arts Annex mural at the Spring Arts Festival.

Beginning Monday, March 25, students will participate in a week-long muraling process with Curran to complete the work that will go up on the exterior of the building. The mural will be unveiled on Friday, March 29 during the Spring Arts Festival. Everyone is invited to come out for the festival, an art-filled afternoon of live jazz, food trucks (Parlez-Vous Crepe, Loyo and Baguettaboutit), Dtown Market vendors, arts and crafts led by Happymess Studios, and see the new Arts Annex mural.
