Downtown Aurora Visual Arts

We believe all kids should have access to a safe, creative space-especially in a high-risk neighborhood along East Colfax Avenue. Every year, DAVA serves thousands of kids in out-of-school arts education. Combining art and technology, programs emphasize innovation, problem-solving, and connection to community. While arts education can connect to careers in the arts, at DAVA we do much more. Our unique approach results in students not only gaining skills in art, but also valuable education, job, and social skills in preparation for a wide range of life aspirations.
