The RAC Difference
Professors & Artists
Our workshops and programs are taught by highly credentialed professional artists who are masters of their craft with proven success in the literary and dramatic arts. Most of us have worked in higher ed for several years and are trained as teachers as well as practitioners.
Inclusive & Inspiring
It's important to us to create inclusive, collaborative learning environments that celebrate the diversity of thought and experience brought to the table. We professionally assess how well we are helping emerging artists reach their goals on a regular basis, and that allows us to be in a state of continual improvement.
RAC can offer you master level courses without student loans, hidden fees or travel expenses. Reclaim programs are in your community or online, with prices that will fit an artists' budget! In fact, you can bring a RAC residency or program to your organization for prices that won't break the bank.
