The Visual Arts Center of Richmond engages the community in the creative process through the visual arts. We believe there is a creative spirit in all of us that nourishes our humanity and enriches our society. We foster a creative culture that encourages people of all backgrounds and skill levels to explore, participate and experiment in the visual arts.


Art After School provides a safe alternative for at-risk students between the risky hours of school letting out and parents arriving home.  Each student is an active participant in 21 hours or hands-on art instruction in mediums ranging from clay to metal working, wood, stained glass, graphic design and dark room photography.  The students see their abilities in a new light and build self-esteem through creative expression.  They learn aesthetic observation skills that promote the belief that art makes life special and enhances lives and communities.

This place is magical. We can only imagine the long-reaching good for our community that comes from providing so many educational opportunities to those who couldn't normally afford them. Whether it is their amazing Art After School program for the Richmond Public School students, their partnerships with organizations like The Virginia Home and Girls and Boys Club of Richmond or the educational programs associated with their beautiful gallery--VisArts has more heart than can be imagined.

The public can come take classes alongside all this goodness, meeting fellow creatives and exercising their own creativity.

I look forward to my time spent helping this organization and encourage others to volunteer here! (Or donate, or take a class or go to one of the events that supports their outreach programs!)
