6th Annual Christmas In Clayton Tour Hosted By Clayton Visual Arts

The Christmas Tour is a great venue for meeting the area’s finest artists.

There is a wide variety of affordable artwork for patrons to enjoy gift shopping while on the Tour. All artists are from the Clayton area and offer a variety of subjects and sizes, from landscapes to portraits to abstracts to still-life and more.

This is the only event CVA charges admission

The $10 admission fee goes toward funding teacher assistance grants through the Dorothy Demboski Art Teacher Assistance Grants. Dorothy Demboski was an artist and active member of CVA. In Clayton, she is most known for her Clayton Patchwork, the large mural at The Clayton Center. Ms. Demboski passed away in December 2013.

Last year, CVA awarded three $350 grants to local art teachers.

The grants went to East Clayton Elementary, Riverwood Elementary and Cleveland High School. Also, gifts of $150 were presented to art teachers to promote art education at each of 14 Clayton-area schools.

This year, CVA hopes to award even more grants depending on ticket sales for the Art & Home Tour. CVA recognizes the need to support student art as funding continues to be cut from school budgets.

Recipients will be announced in early January.
