Bring the Best to LVA

Master Artist Series

All Donations to this program will go towards our Master Artist Series. A critical part of our program's educational enrichment is our ability to bring in guest artists, guest speakers, and industry leaders. The opportunity to learn from these Master Artists through Master Classes, lectures, residencies, and performances brings students in touch with what is possible in the Arts. It is one of the most inspiring parts of their experience at LVA. Interactions with these individuals can be life-changing experiences for our students. Guest artists have included jazz performer and recording artist Tom Scott, Composer Adam Gorb, Actor Mathew Gray Gubler, world-renowned Dramatic Mezzo-Soprano - Dolora Zajick, Composer & Conductor - Jake Runestad, Photographer/Gallery Owner - Mario Basner, Painter/Mixed Media Artist/SVA Faculty - Steve DeFrank, Hamilton Cast Member and Broadway performer - Thayne Jasperson, and Actor/Performer - Ben Vereen.

Aspiring Artist

The Aspiring Artist program supports our economically disadvantaged students who attend LVA. This campaign not only helps fund their arts programs, but ensures that students have full access to the LVA experience including dances, yearbooks, travel, and school supplies.

Friends of LVA

Friends of Las Vegas Academy was founded in 2001 for the purpose of raising funds for the school. We share a passion for the transformative nature of the arts, we look for unique opportunities to collaborate with the Las Vegas community, and we appreciate the importance of sustaining Arts-Integrated Education in the modern public school system.

We are committed to making sure that all Las Vegas Academy of the Arts students experience a world class education.

2021-22 Gala

Experience the Arts In: Radiant

8th Annual Gala

Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino

February 25th, 2022

We are proud to announce that the 2019 Gala profited over $190,000! With this money, we have been able to fulfill LVA wish list items such as a whisper room, upgraded technology and Chrome carts, and student travel scholarships. More teacher wish lists will be fulfilled as Mr. Walker submits them. A HUGE thank you to our 2019 Gala Chairs, Christina Woods & Jessica Nelson.

Invest In Our Potential

The Legacy Giving program is designed to build an endowment fund which will ensure the school’s future for generations of young artists to come. Including LVA in your estate plans provides meaningful benefits for the donor and the school. Investments from the endowment provide a stable source of income and help bridge the gap between the school’s annual budget and our needs.
