Open Studio

DAVA’s Open Studio gives students a chance to explore, experiment and express themselves in new ways. Choose from a wide variety of art projects, including ceramics, drawing, painting, and sculpture. You’ll even find fun ways to learn about science, health, and different cultures through art.

The Open Studio at DAVA is a rich playing field for experiential learning for youth ages 6-14. Students learn key social skills as they problem solve and finish projects successfully, collaborate in community arts projects, and participate in extra STEAM (science, technology, engineering, ART, and math) classes.

The Open Studio is a free program at DAVA. Parents fill out a one-time registration sheet, and then students are welcome to attend on a drop-in basis.

Open Studio fall 2023 hours are Monday through Friday: 2:30 – 5:00 pm.




DAVA teaches me how to do so many things I never thought I could do.  We had to make a wearable fashion design from paper – the projects are so fun!
