WELCOME Dear Friends, Check us out…with a fresh new design to our brochures, signage and other promotional materials. We love the new look and feel like it helps define our efforts to provide vibrant visual and performing art for all of you. Whether you are enjoying a rousing concert, watching a vibrant dance ensemble, laughing out loud at a theatrical performance, discovering the artist within at one of our classes, or contemplating stimulating visual art, we hope you catch our enthusiasm for the arts. While we will continue our ever-popular Center Season, 2nd Stage, classes, art exhibits and special events, we are adding some special changes to make your experiences even more enjoyable. We are pleased to announce some outstanding shows and exhibits this year and delighted to introduce our creative venture with Quill Theatre. Thanks to our new partnership with DeFazio’s Catering, we will be offering dinners before select Center Season Shows. Be sure to add dinner to your show tickets and enjoy the art of great dining! As the popularity of 2nd Stage continues to grow, we are listening to what you—our valued patrons—have suggested. Changes to 2nd Stage include the opportunity to reserve special seating for a show (or you can still opt for general admission). And to add to your dining pleasure, DeFazio’s will be serving dinner and snacks before and during the show, so you can come early and eat…or enjoy dinner at your table as you watch the performance. Food and beverages will be served as in the past…just in a different space. If you have never experienced a 2nd Stage show, find out what the excitement is all about. But be proactive, our shows usually sell out! As you can see, we are changing more than just the artwork around here. We continually strive to offer programs and activities that will keep you coming back. The Center is also the perfect place to plan your next event…weddings, parties and business meetings are even more special when surrounded by the backdrop of inspiration and art. To all our loyal friends…THANK YOU for your continuing support. And to our new patrons… WELCOME. It is our sincere desire to offer exceptional cultural performances, classes and visual art exhibits. Thank you for your patronage. I look forward to seeing you at The Center!

R OUTREACH The Cultural Arts Center provides top-quality programming both onsite and within the community through our arts education outreach programs. Learn more about how we are fulfilling The Center’s mission by making the arts attainable for all, and building a creative community with the power of art!


In our fourth year and in growing cooperation with Henrico’s Police Athletic League (PAL), The Center engages kid’s brains by offering visual, and performing arts classes to at-risk youth in grades K-8. In 2016 we are offering an exciting summer camp for kids! A camp environment gives these kids an opportunity to learn more about art, theater, music, cooking, robotics, and much more! After-school programs and summer camps offer opportunities for kids to learn, play, socialize, and be in a safe environment. In the Fall of 2016, we are expanding our program to reach even more children in our area!


We know Boomers are having a blast in retirement, and are always busy! Staying engaged in life and learning new things has proven to be a key to staying healthy in the long term. The Center now offers the service of going into recreation centers of 55+ communities and retirement facilities providing classes in painting, mosaic, ceramic, jewelry, music, and much more! Classes can come to you or you can take a class at The Center!


The Cultural Arts Center’s newest outreach program focuses on families at risk. In our partnership with Stop Child Abuse Now (SCAN), families with elementary aged children enjoy a healthy meal, a collaborative art project, and parenting skills class. In this six week program, offered four times per year, art becomes a tool for families to employ creativity, communication, critical thinking, and innovation to support a strong family unit. Nothing works without support! It’s the new F.A.D!


Let us create a program specifically for you… Private Group Classes and Camps / Teambuilding Events / Art Birthday Parties / Scout Badge Programs / Public and Private School Enrichment Programs



A big thank you to all of our generous partners sponsors and donors who make it possible for us to offer art to everyone! Please help us continue these important programs as a donor or sponsor.
