We asked some of our guests what they love about the Village Arts Center programs for children. Here are some of their responses.
"I love bringing my grandkids to the VAC when they stay with us. The projects are so unique, teaching them new ways of looking at the world, different ways to use materials and encourages their creativity. Plus they have fun! We started going when the littlest ones were 2, 4 and 6. Now they are 4, 6 and 8 and always ask at the start of our week when their VAC day will be! Best part is that the projects work for each of their developmental stages." Lisa N.
"I love the convenience of the after school programs. My kids love that you let them be completely creative and their art skills have expanded so much over the last year with your guidance. I especially love that they always bring home really great projects to display." Brooke C.
"I love the environment at VAC and that my two year old can move around and go back to her work as needed during art class. The social interaction at that age is just as fun as the classes. We’ve brought home so many fun pieces of art to display. Dawn is amazing with the little ones and we are so thankful for this space she has created!" Kelsey B.
"I love that the VAC is a safe place for my son to explore art. The instructors do a fantastic job at being flexible and attuned to the children’s needs! It makes art a positive and fun experience even if they’ve had difficulty with art in the past in other settings." Kadie K.
"I love that the activities are open-ended, allowing my daughter to tap into and cultivate her creativity. She always enjoyed doing art and crafts, but absolutely loves it now!" Holly E.
"I love how Ms Dawn really works with each child's needs and helps build their confidence and creativity. Going there has helped my child in so many ways. I can't wait for the after school art program to start back up!" Katy A.
"My little girl loves any activity she is able to attend. PRICES are great , location is great & Ms. DAWN loves doing projects with kids & it shows" Chad C
"My daughter has gone to the VAC after school program for the last two years and loved every moment of it. Miss Dawn works so hard to make enriching, fun projects and spends so much time uplifting the kids." Hannah S
"I love that my video-game loving boy opted for art camps after school and this summer, then chose to spend birthday money on art supplies instead of Xbox games! Unplugged and encouraged to find their creativity....and develop new friendships!" Cece D.
"The warmth, the welcoming atmosphere, the wide variety of art projects that the kids are sooo proud of! My grandson and I are card carrying regulars!" Pat M.
