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.

Summer Class/Camp Update

Although FAVA will not be holding in-person classes/camps this summer, we are excited to offer a variety of creative opportunities and an outlet for arts education for all ages in a new virtual setting! In our online course offerings and private lessons we hope to offer a comparable level of personalization and instructor interaction as we have in our in-person courses. Free troubleshooting/critique sessions and fun family at-home activities are also available.

Art Camp-in-a-Box

Looking for technology free art activities to engage your children? Art Camp-in-a-Box offers a creative outlet for your child to stay connected to visual arts.

Included in your box will be camp-inspired activities and art projects your kids can do at their own pace. No technology is needed, so children can take their boxes anywhere to work on them. Each box will have materials and step-by-step written instructions for indoor and outdoor activities to encourage individual creativity.

Camp In-a-Box is available for ages 5-7 years old and 8-12 years old.

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.
