The LVAA is imporoving lives through art education, community outreach, and artist support. 

The Children’s Fine Art Classes program was founded in 1925. Its mission is to provide intensive, in-depth art experiences for talented and motivated elementary, middle, and high school art students. The program offers concentrated studies in two-dimensional art that include studio practices in drawing and painting; art history; critiquing skills; and aesthetics. Instruction is covered by scholarship so that economic status will play no part in a child’s participation or placement. A supply fee is paid by those who elect to support the program. In grades 4-8, visually talented and interested children are invited into the program after recommendation from an art teacher or principal. High school students present a portfolio for consideration and review.
