Welcome to the Visual Arts Center of Richmond, where we’re celebrating 50 years of creativity in 2013!

We have the largest non-university arts program in Virginia and would love to welcome you inside our doors for a class, an exhibit or to share the stories of our wonderful outreach programs. ¬†We have classes for all ages and all skill levels, and our classes have been voted “Best of Richmond” and are on the “Richmonders Must Do List for 2013.”

This past year, we’re proud to have touched more than 28,000 lives in our community. Our students and friends have said they “love, love, love this place!” One even said that VisArts “healed my heart.” We help people get in touch with their creative sides, and relieve the stress from everyday life.

Sign up for a class online, or pop in during business hours and say, “hi!” We are happy to talk you through the registration process, or about about what class might suit you best. We look forward to seeing you here at VisArts!
