Our mission is to Enable a Unified Cultural Awakening by making the Arts and Literacy Accessible and Affordable for the entire community. Casa de la Cultura has been providing a community focused outlet for the youth and adults of Del Rio for over 35 years.
We currently offer a revolving variety of classes based on the educational and cultural needs of our community. We currently offer classes such as Ballet Folklorico, Guitar, Singing, Knitting, Pottery in addition to Elementary Day and Summer Art Camps, Latino aerobics, and Literacy classes.
Throughout the year we host a variety of eclectic events to celebrate our cultural heritage, such as the Cinco de Mayo Pachanga in the Patio, Calaveras Y Calacas and our Christmas Posada y Tamalada. Our seasonal events include our Summer Concert Series/Noches Musicales during the months of June, July and August. Our monthly First Friday Artwalks feature an original art exhibit with artists coming from all over the United States and Mexico as well live music provided by local and international musicians.
Although we charge a small fee for our classes ,we are very proud to say that we have never turned anyone away because they could not pay. La Casa works arduously to provide outlets for our youth, a meeting place for a unified community and a conduit for social change through the arts.
The Casa's activities are made possible, in part, by Texas Commission on the Arts, National Endowment for the Arts, Art Works, United Way of Val Verde County ,Southern Powered, Val Verde County, City of Del Rio and Friends of the Casa
