Chico Art Center



Since its inception in 1956 as a non-profit community-based organization, the Chico Art Center's mission has been to foster and promote the visual arts.

ART INSTRUCTION
Four times per year a full schedule of art classes is offered. Classes are four to eight weeks in length and geared toward specific age groups or experience levels. The Center also offers special workshops, lectures, and demonstrations by guest artists. The Mosaic newsletter is distributed to all members, and includes announcements of upcoming events, and class or workshop registration information.

OPEN STUDIOS TOUR
A self-guided tour through local artists' studios, this delightful adventure gives curious art lovers the opportunity to watch the artists at work. Open Studios takes place in early November.

CHICO DISCOVERY SERIES
This gallery series is designed to encourage local artists in the exploration and development of their respective mediums. Through exhibitions at the Center, the diversity of talent that surrounds us is highlighted and recognized.

CALL FOR ARTISTS
The Center boasts an 800-square-foot gallery space with professional lighting. It is a very desirable place to exhibit work and the annual call for artists elicits proposals from a wide range of regional artists. Group shows, as well as solo exhibitions, representing all media are presented throughout the year.

MEMBER'S EXHIBIT
Chico is home to many talented artists, many of whom support the arts through their membership in the Chico Art Center. All member artists have the opportunity each year to display their work in the gallery during the annual Member's Show. This event showcases the interesting and diverse talents of our members
