CCAA is a small non-proﬁt art organization dedicated to educating, inspiring and connecting the people of Chester County to and through the arts.
Our goal is to inspire creativity and creative thinking. We believe that everyone is an artist with talents waiting to be uncovered. We help develop individual abilities and foster art appreciation along with a sense of artistic community. Our fine art/fine craft classes and workshops teach fundamental concepts as well as advanced techniques. CCAA’s 50+ annual art exhibitions, along with lectures and artist talks, provide dialogue and new learning opportunities.
Our continually expanding art programs for all ages include oil painting, acrylic, watercolor, pastel, figure drawing, sculpture, ceramics, photography, digital art, printmaking, mixed media, fiber arts and jewelry.
CCAA’s year-round fee-based, low-cost and free art programming are offered in West Chester, Exton, Kennett Square, West Grove, Jennersville and Coatesville, for toddlers, students K-12, adults, English Language Learners, special needs teens/adults, veterans and seniors.
