The Venice Art Center offers over 500 classes to adult and children’s classes annually, 12 unique visual art exhibitions which are free and open to the public, a one-of-a-kind artisan gift shop, a venue for special events and concerts, art library and an on-site café. We support local artists by offering them many opportunities to express their creativity, sell their work and give them the platform to teach others. For over 65 years we have been an active advocate in the promotion of the arts in the community through citywide public arts projects, outreach, and collaboration with other organizations. VAC has focused on creating events and projects that enhance the community, support other nonprofits and make Venice a cultural destination. Our goal is to make art accessible and available to our community and to enhance the quality of the lives of those living in our area.


The Mission of the Venice Art Center is to provide cultural resources to the community and to enhance the knowledge and appreciation of all forms of visual arts.
