About FCA

“Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.”   —   Pablo Picasso

Falls Church Arts is a non-profit organization established in 2003 that serves the Metro area with members from the Washington D.C. Metro area. We are dedicated to making the arts a vital and integral part of our community and to celebrating the creative energies of our artists and supporting members.

On February 25, 2017, Falls Church Arts opened its gallery and classroom at 700-B West Broad Street. This facility houses a diverse range of arts events, music, film, and instruction and studio arts classes.

Falls Church Arts also has programs – EXPANDING THE ARTS and pARTicipate – for the creation and display of art outside the studio and galleries. These programs bring art to the people and public spaces in our community and encourage pARTicipation in the arts with The Halloween Paint In, Chalk Walks, “Scenes in the City” Plein Air Festival, and others. Many of our patrons and artists are familiar with our weekly booth at the Falls Church Farmer’s Market (when weather permits), begun in 2013-14. 

Falls Church Arts has been awarded grants from The Little City CATCH Foundation to help fund our operations and programming.

Falls Church Arts welcomes you to our site.

Contact us if you have any questions about Falls Church Arts – we invite you join us and pARTicipate in Expanding the Arts!
