The Raleigh Institute of Contemporary Art is now open. The new art school’s model of instruction is to have new artists learn alongside working artists. These local working artists teach students in the studio and focus their instruction on practical instruction and not classical training. The center was founded by Raleigh artist Mia Yoon. The school will focus on conceptual art, assemblage of found materials, urban art, visual journalism, collage, drawing, graphic design, photography, and more.
