Open Space Education is supported by generous grants from the National Endowment for the Arts, the Virginia Commission for the Arts, and CultureWorks.


We rely on contributions from our community to keep our programs running. Paying our staff and teaching artists, providing supplies and healthy snacks for our students, and offering scholarships to families facing financial barriers are items high on our list of values.


Since March 2021, we've awarded 13 need-based scholarships, allowing students to participate in our classes tuition-free. With your help, we hope to award 15 more this summer! Please consider making a donation.
