Registration for the Visual Arts Center of Richmond’s ArtVenture Summer Camp opened to VisArts members on Wednesday, January 30 at 9 a.m. VisArts is offering over 250 art classes this summer for kids aged 5 to 14 years old. Registration opens to the general public on Wednesday, February  6 at 9 a.m.

At VisArts, kids make real art with the help of some of Richmond’s most prominent professional artists. One-week sessions, for kids aged 5 to 14 years old, run from June 17 to August 30. Morning classes are from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. and afternoon classes are from 1 to 4 p.m. Kids can be dropped off for morning classes beginning at 8:30 a.m. and for afternoon classes beginning at 12:30 p.m.

All ArtVenture Summer Camp classes cost $155. VisArts family membership holders enjoy 10 percent off tuition. Teens ages 15 to 18 should consider Art League, which runs on summer evenings and weekends. Art League classes will be released with our regular summer catalog, which comes out on April 10.

VisArts invites local teens to volunteer as ArtVenture teaching assistants. Each teen is paired with a teaching artist and helps out in the studio. There are opportunities to volunteer for one week or the entire summer.
