The CVA is known for our high-quality classes, camps, and school holiday programs for children. Whether it's in an online class or a week-long camp, our educators seek to awaken the artist within each child - or help an already-blooming young talent grow in ability and confidence. For us, children's programs aren't just art classes where students learn technical art skills like drawing, painting, or pottery. They're also opportunities to teach about the history of art, potential creative careers, and broaden young minds.
Whenever possible, we collaborate with public and private schools and other arts organizations to support art educators and provide historically underserved students with exceptional opportunities to experience the visual arts. We do this through programming on site in our Cultural Center classrooms and studios, and also at area schools and other locations.

CVA Summer Camp Fundraiser 2021
It takes a lot to put on the city's best art camps! We hire the best, most experienced art instructors possible for every camp session. We ensure cleanliness and safety in all of our classrooms, especially in light of COVID-19. Each year, we set a fundraising goal that allows us to provide scholarships for deserving children who might otherwise not be able to attend a camp experience. PLEASE HELP US REACH OUR GOAL THIS YEAR - WITH KIDS HAVING BEEN OUT OF SCHOOL SO MUCH, IT'S MORE IMPORTANT THAN EVER!
