Socially Distant Culture Club

Let's socialize from a distance! We're taking our art happy hour online with a virtual Culture Club. What is Culture Club? Culture Club is CVA's "arty" hour where we art lovers get together to explore creative techniques. If you've been looking to take an art class, get back into your art practice, find new inspiration or just want a fun alternative to the typical bar happy hour, Culture Club is for you!

Sign up for CVA's Happenings newsletter to embark on an art adventure like no other. Find artist inspiration, creative how-tos, and recipes. Then, grab a drink and some snacks and meet us on Zoom for happy hour. 

Our next ones will be on the following Wednesdays at 5:00 pm: September 16 and October 14.
