Campus on the Lake

Campus on the Lake at The Society of the Four Arts provides a series of cultural education lectures, workshops, classes and field trips exploring the topics of art, music, literature, drama and the art of living well. Each program features outstanding international and local speakers who pursue varied forms of the arts.

Feed your curiosity, discover something new, or develop your artistic skills in an atmosphere that is intellectually stimulating and fun.

All workshops, classes, and lectures are open to the public and take place in the Fitz Eugene Dixon Education Building, unless otherwise noted. Due to limited space, reservations are required.
