We love when you come visit us at the Cultural Arts Center for classes, performances, gallery openings, meetings, shopping, and your special occasions! But we also like to get out into the community to bring classes to any and all folks with the space and desire to make art.
We are developing classes for public libraries, after school programs, girl scout and boy scout badges, and recreation departments, to name a few. With plenty of space for individual creativity, kids learn how to use a variety of art materials, sharpen their problem-solving skills, form foundations in color and design concepts, gain self-confidence, and develop a healthy risk-taking attitude. In the wake of art cuts in school budgets, we are here to offer kids fun and educational supplementary sources for these fundamental platforms and outlets.
- We‘ve teamed up with the Henrico County Police Athletic League (PAL) afterschool program to offer
weekly activities for 120 kids who opt in at the beginning of the school year. In association with PAL, we also offer a summer camp program for kids interested in learning more about art, theater, music, nutrition and much more!
- Collaborating with Saint Edwards Epiphany School, we offer a “Kaleidoscope of Art” afterschool
program for students in Kindergarten through 8th grade.
We know you boomers are having a blast in retirement, and busy, too! So let us bring the art classes to you, right in your own neighborhood. Recreation and activity centers of 55+ communities provide the perfect setting for painting, mosaic, ceramic, jewelry, music, and other classes. We know getting those creative juices flowing helps improve all areas of life!
Kicking it up a notch, we are taking corporate team-building to a whole new level. Facilitated by one or more artists, our team-building workshops are some of the most unique and exciting, and will open the creative and innovative floodgates of just about any team! On-site or off, these activities are designed to inspire maximum creative energy in groups of all sizes and are tailored to meet the needs of the team.
"Because nothing works without supporting each other... it's the new FAD!"
FAD is a program that the center has developed with community partners to bring parents and children from emerging and at-risk communities together for dinner and art workshops. With our partners, we provide a relaxed, creative, and fun environment for families to share a meal and play together. The meals are nutritious and delicious, and the art projects are simple and varied enough for all ages.
Thank you to all of our generous and amazing partners, sponsors, donors, and volunteers who make it easier to bring art to everyone! Please think of us when considering your endowments!
