Here is an update

FREE Summer Arts Camp

VSA Tennessee will offer a FREE summer environmental arts camp from July 11-15 at the Sumner Teen Center, 976 Grassland Place, Gallatin TN from 6pm-8pm each evening. The camp will be under the direction of artist Dee Kimbrell. Participants will learn about how our actions impact the environment.  They will then create tunnel books that represent what they have learned. The group will collectively create one larger version of the Tunnel Book, which will be presented at Tremont to the Smoky Mountains National Parks in Oct for the 100th anniversary of the National Parks. The camp is open to individuals over the age of 13 with any form of a disability.  Spots are available for the first 20 registrants.  A registration form can be found below.  Registration forms can be completed, scanned and emailed or mailed to the address provided on the form. This camp is provided through the support of a Nashville Predators Grant and the Tennessee Arts...

Setting the Stage for Everyone’s Artistic Talents

VSA Tennessee, established in 2001, is part of an important history of equality and opportunity in the arts. In keeping with the mission of the international non-profit that is our namesake, we provide people with disabilities opportunities to participate in, learn through and enjoy the arts. This was Jean Kennedy Smith’s vision when she founded VSA arts in 1974, and today, we are still setting the stage for everyone’s artistic interests and abilities. In partnership with and in support of young artists, parents and educators, we work to ensure there are resources, tools and opportunities for arts programming in schools and communities statewide.

VSA Tennessee is made possible in part through funding from VSA arts under an award from the U.S. Department of Education and generous contributions from sponsors and volunteers. All donations—money, time or in kind—allow us to offer and/or support an array of arts education programs and events. From music and theater to visual arts and dance, we strive to open the wide-ranging world of the arts to Tennessee students at school and in the community.
