Our Initiative

Art on The Venues is a community-based art studio whose goal is to assist people in transforming their lives by creating and honing their artistic skills. Our programs seek to develop and endear the individual’s creative, intellectual, and physical capacities. We also offer arts-related services, including classes for children and adults, workshops for adults, and merchandise sales.

Art on the Venues promotes a sense of belonging to the arts. We provide an environment that allows for expressing one’s unique talents in a relaxed, non-competitive atmosphere. Our programs aim to instill a solid artistic sensibility in drawing, painting, or sculpture.
