"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.

Engineering for Kids

Scratch: Game Design and Coding
What’s more fun than playing an interactive video game? Writing one! Video sensing allows students to design and program their own video games and then test them by interacting with the program via webcam. In this Scratch program, students work together to create their own games, art, and musical instruments while exploring coding foundations. Students will get to keep their games and continue working on them at home. Get up and get moving with Engineering for Kids and Scratch!
