Socially Distant Art for All!

While we all miss seeing you in person, we hope to keep you engaged in the visual arts. Here are some fun projects you can do at home to art your way through this pandemic. Check out new youth and adult projects, as well as interactive critique sessions and classes that will be added each week. Meet FAVA artist/instructors and guest artists from Northeast Ohio through studio tours, artist talks, and what they are creating during the COVID-19 pandemic. Learn more about upcoming FAVA exhibits like the Artist as Quiltmaker. We're looking forward to seeing you all in the FAVA galleries and studios on the other side of COVID-19.

FAVA Summer Art Camp in a Box!

Looking for technology-free art activities to engage your children? Why not try an Art Camp-in-a-Box from FAVA?

Each box is filled with camp-inspired activities and art projects, so your child can explore a variety of visual art mediums. Step-by-step illustrated instructions and project materials are included, so children can take their boxes anywhere. Included in your box will be four art projects your kids can do at their own pace along with other fun activities to encourage individual creativity. All art supplies are included, but some projects may include found objects that the campers will need to gather themselves outside or at home.

Art Camp-in-a-Box will be available for ages 5-7 and 8-12 through July . They make great gifts for children, grandchildren, and friends!

Earn Girl Scout Badges Online

While FAVA has not yet resumed in-person classes, we would like to offer the option for scouts to earn their badges virtually. While some badge requirements may be more challenging in an online setting, we will do our best to meet your needs.
