Downtown Aurora Visual Arts provides arts education programs for urban youth ages 3 to 17 in Original Aurora, Colorado. Our mission is to strengthen the community through the visual arts with youth engagement as the primary focus. Every student that walks through our doors experiences the transformative power of high quality out-of-school programs that develop art, social, and life skills.

“At DAVA, I learn to work hard whether I am making items for the gallery, or learning to think, problem solve, and fix stuff. All of these things will help us in our future.” – Jesus (age 14)
