Each summer, the LCVA opens its free Summer Art Studio.  Open from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on summer weekdays, the LCVA’s classroom welcomes drop-in visitors who want to escape the heat and make something cool.  An attendant is on hand to provide materials and instructions, but children must be accompanied by adults.  Activities change every other week.
