Butler Community Arts School

Promoting broad access to high-quality arts instruction.

Offering private music lessons, group classes, summer camps, and more, the Butler Community Arts School is designed to meet community needs through high-quality arts instruction, all while developing civic-mindedness in University students.

What is the Butler Community Arts School?

The Butler Community Arts School (BCAS), an initiative of the Jordan College of the Arts, opened its doors to the community in September 2002. Since then, the BCAS has offered performing arts instruction to anyone ages 5 and up, including adults.

Taught by Butler University students known as teaching fellows, the BCAS believes in the importance of providing high quality, affordable instruction to music, dance, theatre, and visual art to Indianapolis and the surrounding area. 

Whether you or your child is a budding artist or has previous arts experiences, you will find a program that meets your needs at the BCAS.

High Quality. Community-Based.
