Art After School
VisArts has a long, positive partnership with Richmond City Public Schools and is excited to partner with Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Richmond, Communities in Schools, William Byrd Community House, and SPARC to make Art After School classes available to children and teens throughout the region.
Our Art After School classes reach more than 570 youth each year in hands-on studio classes in a wide variety of visual and literary arts.
Classes are held in VisArts’ studios with professional artists and materials, and a thoughtful curriculum is designed to strengthen and support creative exploration and learning. Working together in supportive, inspiring studio spaces, instructors and students share ideas, discover new connections, and use the process of making art to enrich their understanding of the world around us.
