The Arlington Center for the Arts is a community arts center devoted to the mission of "transforming lives and building community through the arts." ACA was established in 1988 by a visionary group of artists, writers, musicians and educators as a place where artists could share their work with the community through educational and outreach programs.
Today, ACA is a vibrant community arts center and a cornerstone for the creative community in Arlington. ACA offers opportunities for people of all ages to discover and express their own creativity and to appreciate the creativity of others through a dynamic mix of classes, workshops, exhibits, performances and special events.
If you're new to ACA, we hope you'll visit sometime soon - you'll find a vibrant community of artists, arts lovers, and arts advocates dedicated to keeping the arts alive and accessible in our community.
At ACA, we strive to create and maintain an inclusive and welcoming environment for every single one of our artists, students, campers, staff members, and more. As such, ACA does not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, gender identity, national origin, cultural heritage, political beliefs, sexual orientation, disability, or marital status.
