THE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR, TEACHERS AND STAFF BELIEVE THAT ADDING ART TO YOUR LIFE CAN:
- Increase imagination and curiosity
- Build self-confidence
- Improve artistic skills and talents
- Strengthen critical thinking
- Enhance emotional well-being
Our focus is on offering quality instruction in the visual arts. By doing so, it is our hope that students will discover their own artistic voices and will have other areas of their lives enhanced. We have seen many of our teens gain confidence as they progress through our program and received recognition and awards in the community. Young children who "love to draw" quickly respond to our curriculum. Students who want to draw and paint find VAI a welcoming and supportive place to create.
It is not uncommon for students to discover VAI at a young age and work through our curriculum through high school. Our most dedicated students have earned scholarships at colleges & universities and have pursued careers in the arts. Some have even returned to VAI to teach a new generation of aspiring artists.
We offer classes for adults, as well. Many of our adult students have always felt a desire to learn art, but have been too busy or intimidated. Instruction at VAI is geared towards all learning levels, so retired professional artists and those who have never picked up a brush before will feel at home here.
