Richmond Art Center’s education programs create experiences for art-making inspired by play and exploration, personal narrative, existing artwork, and formal art principles. Each year over 2,000 youth engage in Richmond Art Center’s arts education programs both onsite at RAC and off-site in the community. All opportunities are either free or fee-based with scholarships available.
