Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, CAOS will not take place in person. CAOS for Toddlers and CAOS for Families will be offered online as soon as possible. Please check back regularly for updates.

CAOS (Community Arts Open Studio) is a weekly workshop where children with caregivers make their own self-directed art projects using a diverse assortment of art supplies in AVA’s Schleicher Children’s Studio.
