About Us

Arts Visalia is a nonprofit community art center located in downtown Visalia, California. Our gallery features diverse monthly exhibitions of regionally, nationally and internationally recognized artists. Our gift shop offers a delightful selection of unique items created by local artisans. Admission is free and open to the public Wednesdays through Saturdays, from Noon to 5:30 p.m.

Throughout the year, Arts Visalia hosts a dynamic range of events including First Friday meet-the-artist receptions, lectures, workshops, open studio sessions, Family Art Days, and other special events that nurture Visalia’s visual arts community.

Our education programs include classes for children and adults. Fall and Spring sessions offer new courses beginning each month. Young at Art is our summer art program offering week-long courses beginning each week throughout June and July, culminating in an exhibition of students’ masterpieces during the month of August. Through generous support from private and public donors, our scholarship programs for kids provide opportunities for dozens of youths each year.

Adult workshops are an excellent way to learn a new way of expressing your creativity, or hone existing skills. Arts Visalia offers monthly figure drawing and open studios as well as various weekend workshops that focus on different art making techniques. Workshop offerings vary. Check the website for upcoming events.
