Art Nurture is the working studio of local artist, Court McCracken, and her studio classroom for workshops offered to the community. The studio is located in Asheville’s River Arts District at The Hatchery Studio Building (1 Roberts Street, Studio #141 Asheville, NC 28801). 

Here you will find monthly classes hosted by Court and guest teaching artists. 

At the studio, the focus is on process and on engaging in the creative journey fully. 

Offerings for group workshops and private lessons include painting (watercolor, acrylic, oil and ink) drawing (graphite, charcoal, ink) installation, mixed media, and fiber art. Portfolio development is available in private lessons for those wanting to develop a cohesive body of work.

Private workshops are available for customization for your group. Focus can be professional development, team building, creative play, intuitive making, and process based exploration. 

Guest artists lead workshops including natural dyes, paints, fiber arts, cyanotype photography, collage, and creative empowerment. 

Court McCracken has been creating art in the Western North Carolina community as well as leading visual arts classes and creativity cultivation sessions for the past decade. Her kickstarter published book, Art Nurture: The Simple Guide to Cultivating Your Creativity, encourages each person to find and nurture their own art for their overall joy, health, and well being. Come play at the studio as we seek to live our naturally creative lives!
