Community through Creativity

Painting on Art Scramble West Concord community art project

Community Art

It takes a Village to make a Village. It is our mission at the Village Art Room to bring life and vitality to our community. We do this in part by collaborating with local businesses, and with social service organizations in making public art that engages community members in its execution, and that enhances the community through its message and its aesthetic appeal.

We will always have a community art project that anyone can contribute to during our Open Studio Drop-in Times and during ART JAM.

Open Studio Times

You don’t have to be an artist to enjoy playing with art supplies! We have projects to suit everyone, whether “artistic” or not: make a stamp, paint your sneakers, make a pop-up card, use collage supplies to make your portrait, or a greeting card. The possibilities are nearly endless. You will find a pleasant, sunny studio and welcoming art coaches who will guide you in the project of the day, or give you a tour of the supplies and projects that are available at any time.

Adults and teens are welcome. Check out as well Kid’s Drop-in Time. Pay at the Art Room with cash, credit card or check. 15$ for the first hour, then $5 per half hour.

Most weekdays during the summer, 10:00am to 1:00pm. But see the calendar for changes to that schedule.
