Founded in 2022, Vika Visual Arts Association (VVAA) is a 501(c)(3) arts organization that supports emerging and disadvantaged visual artists. We believe that all visual artists should have the opportunity to not just create art, but have a meaningful and sustain career in the art. After acquiring and mastering artistic skills, there are often two challenges that aspiring visual artists must overcome:

  • Knowing how to enter the artworld, and/or
  • Having the resources to create art

We teach visual artists how to establish a sustainable art career, and provide visual artists the supplies they need to create art.

Our Vision

Every emerging and disadvantaged visual artist has the opportunity to become a professional artist and sustain their creative passion to the extent of their desire.

Our Mission

Vika Visual Arts Association works to provide equal opportunity to all emerging and disadvantaged visual artists by providing the tools, resources and training that every artist needs while eliminating the roadblocks on their specific path to creative success.

Our Method

With a combination of programs, workshops, and art supplies, we take a hands-on approach to ensuring visual artists have the needed education and resources to show up fully prepared in the art world.

Our Values

Vika Visual Arts Association values creativity, curiosity, inclusion, equity, resource sharing, and community building. We prohibit discrimination based on race, color, national origin, sex, religious creed, disability, age, or political beliefs.
