Our two sons LOVE the AVA and the art camps. We would highly recommend their programs. They're a great way for children to find and express their creativity.

A little off the beaten path, this gallery is worth the detour. It is a gem. AVA offers art classes at every level and shows a wide variety of top-notch work. Housed in a former clothing factory, the building alone is worth a look-see.

The most recent exhibition was in mid-September of last year, when my brother, sister-in-law, and I went to the opening of a special exhibit on The Art of the Woodcut Novel. It was fascinating, and we all enjoyed it immensely. Unfortunately,... More

I have been to Ava many times, they show local artists that are trying to establish their business. I like to be supportive the work is usually above high school quality and sometimes has some "real artistic talent".

An art gallery with studios for a variety of art classes for adults and kids. There is a beautiful light filled art gallery with current exhibitions which were interesting . Only a handful of people there when we visited. The art studios were cavernous and I would have loved to have taken a class but sadly none available for what... More

When I was little I used to go to AVA for art lessons, but now I'm taking my niece and nephew for a wonderful program called CAOS. For $5 kids can be their own artist in a variety of mediums: clay, paint, drawing, etc. Such a great deal and the kids love it. I'm so happy that AVA has expanded... More
