The Maple Valley Creative Arts Council, designated a 501©3 in 1999, is dedicated to the promotion and appreciation of the arts in our community and schools as a source of inspiration and education to enhance the quality of life for everyone.  The Arts Council's immediate goal is to cultivate stronger partnerships with our schools, businesses and greater community, specific to our youth and citizens in the areas of visual and performing arts.

This is a great time to be an artist or an art lover.  Maple Valley is flourishing and our group has shaped community awareness of the Arts in such a way that Auguste Rodin would be proud!  Join us and share your talents and enthusiasm for the arts.


Membership is easy, and only $25!  Your annual membership support will allow us to fund community events.  Help our events calendar grow!  We will also be happy to display your promotional materials at our office and events, as well as linking your website with ours.

"The artist must create a spark before he can make a fire and before art is born, the artist must be ready to be consumed by the fire of his own creation".  ~ Auguste Rodin
