CAOS (Community Arts Open Studio)
A perennial favorite, CAOS (Community Arts Open Studio) is a weekly workshop where children with caregivers make their own self-directed art projects using AVA’s diverse assortment of art supplies. CAOS meets in AVA’s Children’s Studio between 11am-4pm on Saturdays throughout the school year.
Sept 16 – May 19
Participation in CAOS costs $5, whether you’re there for an hour or the entire day, and is great fun for everyone! Come discover why CAOS is one of AVA’s most enduringly popular programs, and leave with a drawing, painting, or sculpture of your own. CAOS features special programs along the way, including Public Art Projects, live music, and other seasonally themed projects for extra inspiration.
