The Next Star Arts Program

Next Star's goal is to reach as many children as possible in the East End of Richmond and surrounding areas through visual and performing arts programs. Currently we are able to reach ,on average, about 52 children each year through our various programs. 


Next Star is reaching its goal through the following programming:

  • Saturday Arts School -  This program runs on a semester basis with two semesters each year; one in the Spring and the other in the Fall.   Both semesters culminates in a Production that showcases drama, dance, and art works. 
  • Camps- Our International Arts And Culture camps offer the unique opportunity for children to see the world through dance, food sampling, games, art and crafts and music.  
  • Public Speaking Classes-  This offers the unique opportunity for Middle and High School students to learn public speaking, presentation and writing skills from professionals in the field.
