FIRST WEEK OF MARION ARTS CENTER for the FALL 2018 Semester is August 20 - 23.

As a division of the Worship Arts Ministry of First Baptist Church, the MAC exists to provide Christ-centered arts education opportunities to persons of all ages and skill levels. Students benefit from well-qualified teachers, all committed to artistic excellence and a God-honoring approach to learning and performance. Arts Center students have the opportunity to participate in an annual showcase performance at the conclusion of each spring semester. Additionally, many students become involved in other performance opportunities in our church and community.

Our motto at the Marion Arts Center is “inspiring the artist in everyone” because we believe that no one is too old, too young, too skilled, or too unskilled not to benefit from learning to express themselves creatively and to impact our world.

The Marion Arts Center offers enrollment each semester in the following areas:

  • Dance
  • Art
  • Drums
  • Beginner and Intermediate Piano
  • Voice
  • Acoustic Guitar
  • Electric Guitar
  • Beginner Bass Guitar
  • Art
