Pajaro Valley Arts Coucil

PVA is the only arts organization in south Santa Cruz County that gives the public a chance to connect with a rich diversity of visual art and artists in a gallery setting. Reaching 8,000-10,000 people each year, our programming contributes to the region's economic development and plays an important role in extending the area's educational resources for hundreds of children, students, and adults. Experience Art, PVA’s educational program, provides students and teachers the opportunity to make, exhibit and tour fine art exhibits free of charge, to learn about and better understand art, art making, and the expressive qualities of art made by outstanding regional artists. PVA hosts field trips for all grade levels, year-round, requiring additional staff, and outreach efforts. We inform schools about content, and learning opportunities; create and distribute teacher resource guides; and schedule tours, often outside of gallery hours. We offer bilingual services if requested. Gallery tours provide opportunities for students, teachers, and parents to broaden their understanding of art, medium, and techniques.
