ArtVenture Summer Camp

At VisArts’ ArtVenture Summer Camp, young people make art with some of Richmond’s most talented professional artists. This year, we made the difficult decision to cancel all on-site ArtVenture classes due to COVID-19. We gathered feedback from our teachers and talked to other Richmond arts organizations, camps and educational institutions. Ultimately, this comes down to safety and what we feel is best for our community.

ArtVenture 2020 has moved online!

July 27-September 6

Our dedicated and creative ArtVenture teachers have stepped up and helped us create a six-week session of online camps for kids ages 6 to 14. Online ArtVenture will run Monday-Fridays from 10:30 a.m. to noon (morning session) and 1 to 2:30 p.m. (afternoon session). We’re very excited to be able to offer virtual art camps with a variety of media for kids ages 6 to 14. We hope to cultivate a fun, social atmosphere that allows campers to meet new friends and make art!

Tuition and Fees
All weekday, online ArtVenture classes cost $85. Weekend workshops have different prices noted next to each class. VisArts Family Membership holders receive 10% off regular tuition and access to early registration. All ArtVenture classes will be confirmed or cancelled one week prior to their scheduled start date.

Tuition Assistance Fund
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 created the Tuition Assistance Fund. Kids and adults can apply to take a class and we scale the cost of the class based on their income level. To apply for tuition assistance, please visit our scholarships and financial aid page.

  • We will continue selling Take + Make Kits through our website. These kits are great for adults, kids and families who want to create art at home, on their own time.
  • We also plan to create flexible programming for families through a “camp-in-a-box” approach, allowing families to buy a package that includes supplies and prerecorded tutorials. Stay tuned for more info!
