CAOS for Families

CAOS (Community Arts Open Studio) is a weekly workshop where children and their caregivers make their own self-directed art projects using a variety of available tools and art supplies. While there will be an AVA instructor facilitating the open studio, CAOS is not a drop-off program. Children and their caregivers are both invited to attend.

CAOS will take place on Saturday mornings from 9:00 am to Noon in AVA’s Schleicher Family Children’s Studio and adjacent Wasson Family Children’s Loft. 

CAOS now requires pre-registration; we do not currently run it as a drop-in program. As many as four family members (adults plus children) can register as a family. To register your family, please enter "1" in the Quantity area of the date you would like to register for below. Please understand that, because of social distancing guidelines, we have to be strict about limiting registration to no more than 4 family members at a time.

Currently, because of AVA's Covid-19 guidelines, all participants are required to wear a mask while at AVA. 

Finally, while CAOS is free, we directly rely on members and donors to keep programs like it running.
