We are in the process of developing an online exhibition program as well virtual education and events. Please DONATE now to support us through a decrease in our funding from our sponsors due to the impact of the COVID-19 epidemic.

For the IAA to grow and thrive in art education programming for present and future, the IAA is redesigning their art programs and Exhibits. COVID-19 has created the necessary push to join the online art community with 3 different art programs. These online art programs are in concert with programs that will be going on in the IAA Galleries. The IAA is developing online and Gallery programs will help extend our presence in the Irving/DFW area. This is an investment in the continuation of the IAA excellence in art education we have developed for over 65 years. The IAA Development Team is targeting June 15th as the start date for the “IAA Art Talks”, July 7th for IAA Virtual/Art’s Spotlight, and IAA Online Art Classes.
