Our popular children’s program will resume in June.
All classes are designed for school-aged children. Younger children are welcome with an adult caregiver. All materials are supplied by LVSA. Scholarships are available thanks to funding from private donations from friends and supporters of LVSA. La Veta School of the Arts does not discriminate in any way.
All classes will be at LVSA from 1-3 PM, except Clay for All, which will be at Piñon Clay Studio Gallery: 402 S. Main in La Veta. The Clay for All class will be broken up by age. Classes for 5-8 year olds will be held at 9-10am; and 9-12 year olds from 10:30 to 11:30.
