The Center for Visual Artists (CVA) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that supports emerging artists of all ages through educational programs, exhibition opportunities and community outreach.  The CVA strives to foster the education of families through the visual arts and engage our diverse community by enabling anyone at any skill level to experience the arts by offering programs that are approachable, accessible and affordable.

The CVA offers a broad range of visual art educations programs that serve all ages (3 & up). During the school year, programming for youth includes art days when school is out, after-school, and after-school school outreach. In the summer, the CVA hosts the largest art camp in the area with the widest variety of camp themes for ages 3 - 18.

We also offer Family Art Programs with the sole purpose of strengthening family bonds through the art-making process. Family Programs are designed for children ages 4 - 12 with an adult. Prices cover 1 adult and 1 child.
