"Louisa County experiences a high rate of poverty... I have no doubt that for many students, it was their first time in a theater... We gave those kids a spark that could change lives -- or at least broaden the horizons of their hearts and minds. For that, I thank you!"
Dr. LuAnneUnruh, Assistant Superintendent for Instruction, Louisa County Public Schools about the professional theater presentation to 600 Louisa School students.
Arts Education

Art Lessons

On the second floor of the art center are two spacious classrooms with lots of natural light. The Art Center partners with Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, Richmond. This partnership allows us to bring many fine art teachers to Louisa to hold classes on a wide variety of topics such as photography, fabric art, painting, drawing, etc. We also have a number of local artists who are willing to teach a class if asked. Please let us know the art class topic that interests you by e-mailing Minimum class size varies.
