Latino aerobics classes and works of art by children are all part of Casa de la Cultura.

Casa is a community arts center that features murals, a butterfly garden with native plants, art camps and classes, a concert series and other events. Its mission is to promote the appreciation of Mexican-American culture.

The center is funded primarily through grants so that arts are accessible and affordable for the entire community. A couple of the grant sources are the Val Verde Community Foundation and the Texas Commission on the Arts.
