The Cranbury Arts Council provides arts-oriented programs, workshops, and performances aimed at enriching the cultural experiences of our community and keeping the creative spirit alive in ourselves and our children. Our mission is to foster, support, educate, inspire, and promote artists and art appreciation in our community. The Arts Council is a non-profit, volunteer organization. Our funding is provided by donations and a bi-annual fundraising event.

Unfortunately, the Cranbury Arts Council Board of Directors has decided to cancel all Cranbury Arts Council camps this summer. With the Cranbury School closed for the remainder of the school year and the uncertainty of the coming months, we feel this is the best decision for the health and safety of our campers, teachers, and counselors. All camp families have been sent an email with directions to receive their refunds. We are looking forward to Summer 2021 when we can create fabulous art and fantastic memories together again!
Please check back for updates on some exciting online workshops we are planning for the summer!
In addition, Cranbury's Town Hall and therefore the Cranbury Arts Council's Gourgaud Gallery remains closed until further notice. Our Community Art Workshops have all been postponed and we are trying to reschedule them for later dates.
