Local Community Arts, aka LoCo Arts is an organization of educators and artists dedicated to enriching and strengthening the communities of Giles County and the NRV through arts-based creative education and cultural experience. We envision an inclusive and creative local community strengthened by the understanding of self, place, culture, and the individual ability to make the home, community, and world a better place. 


LoCo Arts currently serves youth and adults in Giles County through its afterschool program, workshops, summer camps, and its nature-based preschool program, the Mayapple School. Our center of operations is the Newport Community Center in Giles.


Access to arts-based curricular and extra-curricular programming is currently limited in Giles, as in many other counties in Virginia, and economic factors can further restrict such access. LoCo Arts is committed to serving the Giles and NRV communities while offering low- or no-cost programming, including after-school and preschool scholarships, to ensure that more individuals have fair access to education and creative activities. We also provide healthy snacks and a safe and comfortable environment for learning and play. We currently occupy a wonderful space that allows for this but requires regular maintenance and updating.
LoCo Arts programming is made possible through low-cost fees for services, donations, partial volunteer and 
intern efforts, community and specialized project grants, and local fundraising ventures. All income is reinvested into programs that offer individuals and communities healthy creative outlets. Your help is both critical and deeply impactful, as those resources are invested directly into our communities.
