Richmond Art Center Update: Monday, April 6, 2020

Updated: added grant programs, community and artist resources, links in Spanish

In alignment with the recommendations of Contra Costa County Health Services, City of Richmond and the new shelter-in-place orders for six Bay Area counties, including Contra Costa County, the Richmond Art Center will be closed to the public through Sunday, May 3, 2020.

Read the Contra Costa Health Services’ new stay-at-home order press release HERE. (03.31.2020)
The Richmond Art Center is working to reschedule classes and workshops that were scheduled to begin before April 6, instead of cancelling them. We will monitor public health advisories and provide updates about our programs on our website, Facebook and Twitter pages and by email.  
We do anticipate that some classes and workshops may be cancelled. Please direct questions regarding refunds to or call 510-620-6772. We hope that students will support the Art Center by considering alternatives such as applying funds to future classes or converting fees for cancelled classes to donations to the Art Center.
We regret any inconvenience caused by our closure. Please feel free to contact us at the above email address or phone number if you have any questions. Thank you for your patience, understanding and continuing support during this time of uncertainty.

We will continue to monitor the spread of COVID-19 and provide regular updates available on our website and social media pages.
