Arts in Action Lab banner

Art + Action Lab

The Art + Action Lab programs engage both middle and high schoolers in collective and individual contemporary art making. Drawing inspiration from current CVA exhibitions, students will learn a wide variety of materials and techniques, exploring activism and humor in art.



How much does it cost? All Art + Action Lab programs are FREE. Education programs at CVA are generously supported by our sponsors, donors and members.

Do I need to purchase supplies for my child? All art supplies and materials for class are provided free of cost. 

Are there any transportation costs? High school program field trip transportation is provided free of cost, although teens will be responsible for their own transportation to and from CVA. 

Can I still register my child if the session has already started? Yes! Students are admitted on a rolling basis throughout the course of the program until the program is full. If the program is full, you will be placed on a waiting list and someone will reach out to you when/if a space opens up. 

Is my child required to attend every week? We understand that illnesses, emergencies, vacations and other things come up but we encourage students to commit to coming each week to receive the greatest benefit.
