Middle School Art Camp
was sponsored by Garden Valley Center for the Arts
Garden Valley Center for the Arts grew out of twin desires to promote local area artists and to continue arts education for children and adults.
GVCA opened in April 2013 with its first gallery show, “Selections from GVart”. By June the Pottery Studio was a reality due to equipment donations from Treasure Valley Community College. Education Curriculum included children’s art and music workshops, along with basic drawing and painting classes for adults. Various other adult classes are offered to encourage adults to learn and CREATE!
James Castle Celebration
The James Castle Celebration was held Saturday & Sunday, September 1 & 2 in Crouch.
Activities, exhibits, opportunities to create your own James Castle-inspired art, and more will be announced soon.
This was an amazing weekend you wont want to miss!
GVCA has sponsored and brought various other arts to the Garden Valley area including chamber music by “Classical Revolution” and the Ririe-Woodbury Dance Company which was integrated into the school district for a week of instruction through movement; and other performing artists. GVCA artists are actively involved in the schools teaching various types of art lessons in the high school art class as well as classes at the Center for adults and students. We proudly celebrate Garden Valley born/raised renowned artist James Castle and hold a yearly event to promote him.
