Our Students

Our Students

DAVA students are our greatest inspiration and the heart of every decision we make. Our program model is community-based, culturally responsive, and youth driven. Students from around the world pour into DAVA’s light-filled studios every day after school. They explore art and technology, while building their problem-solving, critical thinking, and leadership skills. Every class at DAVA is free and open to students of all backgrounds and abilities. Kids join creative teams, imagine new possibilities, and bring their visions to life.

Our Programs

DAVA’s community art center is an island of creativity in Aurora, Colorado. 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. Free year-round programming engages kids from pre-school through high school.
