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.
