VAI works with local schools to bring workshops to children in the community. Workshops are 4 weeks long, 1 to 2 sessions per week, each lasting between 1 and 2 hours. The cost is $30 per hour for the instructor; supplies are extra and generally range between $25-$75. Subjects could include drawing, painting, mobiles, mosaics, sculpture, collage, etc. Workshops can be in-class learning experiences or after-school programs.
As a free service to the community, we judge PTA Reflections Contests for Elementary, Junior High, and High Schools in the Jordan, Murray, Granite, Davis, and Salt Lake School Districts for the categories of Visual Art, Photography, Three-dimensional, and Video. We judge between 20 and 50 school's reflections contests each year. If you or someone you know are interested in having us judge your school's reflections contest, contact us for more information.
VAI actively participates in various collaboration projects throughout the community. Those projects might include public art projects, theater production sets or murals, like the one pictured below.
