Richmond Art Center has been sharing art and creating with community since 1936. Our programs encompass classes, exhibitions and events at our facility, as well as off-site activities that bring free, high-quality art making experiences to WCCUSD schools, community centers, and Richmond Public Library.
To be a catalyst in Richmond for learning and living through art.
Relevance: Embodying the cultural, social and artistic currents of our community.
Equity: Empowering a just, inclusive and intersectional arts community.
Creativity: Recognizing and uplifting every person’s artistic potential.
Driven by a commitment to our community, Richmond Art Center is a participatory space that seeks to equitably grow and sustain innovative art practices in Richmond and beyond.
We are committed to providing a welcoming, safe and supportive learning environment for everyone. Students, program participants and visitors are invited to read our Community Agreements and commit to supporting a just, safe and supportive learning environment at Richmond Art Center.
