Connecting People and Building Community

The Cultural Arts Center is on the move, reaching out and across the counties of Chesterfield, Hanover, and Henrico as well as the city of Richmond! Through workshops, special events, and classes, we are sharing our love of the visual and performing arts with people of all ages, cultures, and abilities.

Art Matters!

Preschool, Youth and Teen Programming

Art Matters invites young people from preschool to high school to explore and create with paint, mosaics, pencils, paper mache, markers, pastels and more. These young artists are creating amazing and unique works of art using their minds, hearts, and creative energy.

  • The CAC provides art programs at three Henrico County Police Athletic League (PAL) afterschool programs throughout the school year. In addition to providing visual arts activities, we collaborate with Stage3C for drama and theater programs and instrumentalist Roy Myers for ukulele classes and performances. During the summer months, we partner with PAL to provide a Summer Camp experience packed with art, theater, music, cooking, and dance.
  • Cartooning, Jewelry-Making, Altered T-Shirts, and Animation are a few of the teen programs the CAC facilitates in partnership with the Henrico County and Chesterfield County Public Libraries.
  • Scavenger hunts, tours, and art activities for local Girl Scout Troops are becoming more frequent. We are excited to be a part of programs that contribute to the Girl Scout mission and are just plain fun!
  • Partnering with Henrico and Hanover County Public Schools, the CAC provides art activities and inspiration at special events and programs.

    Additional partnerships include: Henrico County Juvenile Detention Home, James River Juvenile Detention Center, Henrico County Prevention Services, Chesterfield County Public Libraries, and Richmond Children's Hospital.

Artful Living!
