Our Mission

Village Arts and Education Foundation Mission

It is VAEF’s belief that art experiences have the power to spark exploration, innovation, self reflection, healing, and joy in individuals and thus enrich their lives. The positive impact of art experiences on individuals is reflected in family, work and community life.

The VAEF’s goal is to enrich lives of people of all ages and backgrounds through the art experience by providing opportunities to take classes to explore new mediums, meet and talk with artists, and participate in discussions and lectures.


We envision a community that values art and the creative process. In this community everyone feels empowered to participate in and be enriched by the arts.
