Join VAA

Benefits of Membership

There are many benefits for both the artist and non-artist to become involved with VAA. Whether you are seeking to learn about specific artistic methods or resources throughout the Houston area, there is likely something of benefit to you. The following is a summary of those benefits.

Dear VAA member, you will receive a rebate of 50% of your membership fee as a special consideration during this pandemic  (April 2020-March 31, 2022). We hope that this encourages you to stay involved with your creative interests as we watch the world around us change in unexpected ways; creativity is so very important right now! Please know that these funds are coming out of reserves built up in the past by all our volunteerism in keeping VAA going and this will NOT negatively impact our activities in any way. Please simply keep this money; if you don’t want/need it, consider donating it to your favorite organization.
