Penland Ambassadors

Penland couldn’t exist without the incredible generosity of our friends, who support the school in many different ways. If you love Penland and want to help, becoming a Penland Ambassador is a great way to get involved.

Penland Ambassadors give presentations in their communities.

Penland Ambassadors organize and deliver our Penland PowerPoint presentation to audiences at university art departments, community colleges, retirement centers, community art centers, service clubs, and a variety of other locations. If you know of a group in your community who would benefit from a presentation about Penland, download our Penland Ambassador files to get started:
