VCA’s Arts Education program was founded with the belief that art has the power to ignite creativity, build confidence, foster connections and change lives. The Blue Heron Education Center—our dedicated space for classes, art experiences and curated shows—is home to a rotating catalog of classes in drawing, painting, theatre, photography, ceramics, creative writing, music, movement and more. Vashon’s talented artists are our community’s richest resource. We partner with 45-50 local artists to offer over 90 classes and camps per year to students of all ages and abilities.

Our mission is to make quality arts education affordable for all, and our robust scholarship fund provides support so that no student is turned away for lack of funds.

For questions regarding class information, registration, and schedules, please contact us at 206-259-3005 or email us at info@vashoncenterforthearts.org.
