A Message from the ACA: COVID-19 Update

Please note: Following Governor Baker’s order to extend school closings, the Arlington Center for the Arts (ACA) is cancelling all programs scheduled until at least May 3, 2020, including our April Vacation Arts Camp

Students, instructors, and patrons impacted by these cancellations will be contacted directly by our programming staff. Your patience is appreciated as we continue to navigate these challenging times the best we can.

Staying Connected w/ ACA

We recognize the uncertainty that weighs on all of us as our communities respond to the precautions around COVID-19. While we all must do our part to prevent the spread of the virus, we as an organization also feel a responsibility to continue to engage our community through the arts in these times of extended isolation.

The ACA will regularly be compiling activities, resources, and ideas for beating the social distancing blues. Please visit our Staying Connected page for a regularly updated list of links, resources, and ideas!​​​​​
