Through fundraisers, scholarships and other events, the foundation gives students a platform to make a difference. 

How we operate


Welcome to VSA's 3rd student art show! The 2021 Christmas Art Show features the best student works of the year. Despite the challenges of the pandemic, students have still worked hard to continue contributing to important social issues. 

The show will be presented in three stages: ​


1) Two viewing periods, exhibiting different pieces.

2) A charity auction of exhibited pieces.

3) Final award ceremony.

To stay healthy so that we can enjoy this year's Christmas cheer, we will be hosting this year's student art show directly at the studio. We hope to see you there!
