Art for Everyone. Creativity for Life.

The Visual Arts Center of Richmond is proud of the many artists on the RVA Clay Tour who have ties to the 54-year-old community arts center. These artists teach classes, volunteer their time in VisArts’ clay studios and are members of the organization’s Clay Guild.

VisArts offers dozens of clay classes throughout the year. Classes are reasonably priced and open to anyone. This summer, VisArts is offering Introduction to the Wheel, Slab-Built Boxes, Mixed-Media Ceramics and Exploring Porcelain, among others.
