So what can you learn for $5 a lesson? Elevate is a new school of life and art offered by local Asheville artists and teachers who are passionate about their subjects, excited about sharing, and happy to teach both children and adults. Elevate was conceived by artists from the Highland Acting Company, who performed the popular Broadway musical “Godspell” for over five thousand people in the Asheville area beginning in 2009.
Elevate will be offering weekly classes beginning the week of March 7th for 10 weeks in downtown Asheville at 34 S. Lexington Avenue. Classes can be joined “in process” if there is availability during the first two weeks. Classes are being offered for various ages and skill levels in: Drama, Guitar, Graphic Design, Hip-Hop Dance, Sewing, Creative Writing, Math Tutoring, Programming, Crochet, Biblical Greek, Worship Dance, Book Binding, Paper Making, Intro to Art, Shoe Making, and more.
Asheville is known to be a unique city for both the visual and performing arts so it seemed only natural to offer classes to our community for those who would like to be taught a particular subject at an affordable rate. So, for only $50, based on ten weeks at $5 per lesson, students can expose themselves to various art and life subjects, learning new skills and knowledge. Our hope is that this learning experience will be both fun and rewarding.
50% of the proceeds go directly to the teachers, and 45% goes toward building a full-time community center for downtown Asheville. It is the dream of Elevate School of Life and Art to one day have its own permanent location where art and life skills can be shared and taught to the community.
