Who are your instructors and how can I learn more about their background/class offerings?

Our instructors are professional artists, teachers and college professors. They are chosen for their artistic talent and their ability to successfully communicate skills, techniques, and processes to students. Regular course and special workshop instructors are independent contractors. As such, they design their course curriculum and can answer more in depth questions about their classes. Most instructors have contact information available for students. Contact the Registration Office at 770.394.3447 x 0 for more information or visit the Classes area of our website to view the Instructor Bios section. Summer Camp Instructors are SCA Employees. They are subject to background checks at both the state and federal levels.

Does the Spruill Center offer any scholarships or special discounts?

We have a limited number of scholarships available for our Summer Camp program. Please contact our Education Director at 770.394.3447, extension 229.
