VSA Colorado offers a variety of art and learning workshops. Are you looking for an affordable and unique opportunity for your students to experience the arts in context of what they are studying in the classroom? Then these workshops are for you. All workshops aligned with specific state educational standards and are led by a trained facilitator. This is a joint effort of VSA Arts of Colorado and the Chicano Humanities & Arts Council (CHAC).
Arts For All
The ARTS for ALL program is made up of one-of a kind products that offer individuals of all challenges an opportunity for creative expression through arts and mobility. Art tools are designed so that participants with limited movement or lack of fine motor skills can be successful in using what mobility they have to create, paint, draw, print, and more.
