VAE = Art + Community.

Located in the historic village of North Bennington, Vermont, VAE carries out its mission through art education programs and workshops both public and private as well as exhibitions and performances which present local, national and international artists.

We are committed to teaching creativity to young children on up to our elders. We combine these groups through our Intergenerational Arts programs, which allow for the arts to become a strong healing modality uniting creativity with compassion.

VAE utilizes the arts to engage with communities and create long lasting partnerships with health care sites, public & private schools and many not for-profit organizations and businesses. We have been awarded and recognized on a local, national and international level for this work.

Artist Volunteers can utilize their talents as an artist or teacher by helping out with classes and other programming. We also need volunteers to help in the studios, galleries, office and events.

Be a Partner

We believe that integrating and weaving the arts into our lives and neighborhoods creates a strong, vibrant, healthy community and economy.


Some of VAE funding comes through grants & fees but we rely greatly upon your monetary donations. If you would like to support the work of VAE, donations are gladly accepted.
