Artists on Location is a program where exhibiting artists interact with the community. We pair artists to do activities with residents of all of ages depending on the interests and expertise of the exhibiting artists. Activities range from workshops with the Boys and Girls Club to activities with CHS to artist’s talks with PVCC students.
We partner with the Charlottesville City Schools to offer an Art Club to a city school afterschool art club with local artists: We will provide 8-12 after-school workshops annually for elementary students. These workshops allow students an opportunity to participate in hands-on art activities in a variety of media with a variety of artists as well as contributing to an artistic community
