Visual Art Whether you are an aspiring artist or simply appreciate new and exciting artwork, CHYA has something for you!

CHYA provides a platform for young and emerging artists to take creative risk and to conceive relevant and contemporary programming in a creative and inclusive environment.

Visual Arts is one of the key mediums within Courthouse Youth Arts’ framework.  The Courthouse Youth Arts Gallery has become a place that Geelong artists – both emerging and established – know and love. The gallery itself has now become an important part of the Geelong art culture – it’s become the go-to venue for finding and showcasing previously unknown artists. Courthouse Youth Arts is proud to supply such a venue and showcase Geelong’s emerging talent – Geelong is full to the brim of outstanding young artists of all mediums, and we’re more than happy to lend a hand to showcase their work.
