ArtVenture Summer Camp

At VisArts’ ArtVenture Summer Camp, young people make art with some of Richmond’s most talented artists and educators. We look forward to ArtVenture each year because our building is filled with so much energy and creativity!

Financial Aid

At VisArts, it’s part of our mission to ensure that people of all backgrounds, ages and skill levels can explore the visual arts and live creative lives. To ensure that our art classes really are for everyone, we have made Financial Aid aid available to adults, youth and families. Kids and adults can apply to take a class and we scale the cost of the class based on their income level.
