In a city such as Las Vegas, there are many that would say that the concept of Art is a dying breed; no matter the medium. With all the muss and fuss of everything that seems to be going on (and with the lure of all of the Casinos in this city) who would really take the time? This is one outfit that tries their best to avoid letting Art fall to the waste-side, to just be forgotten. The Neon Venus Art Theatre is open to many different forms of Art and strongly encourages it for all its forms/mediums. Through Paintings and Photographs, Acting and Singing, it's clear that they have a strong love for it. They offer classes as well to keep it going and involve the community! There are classes for everyone (including children) to learn to sing, along with performing/acting on stage. Classes are also offered for Photography and/or Songwriting to help you capture the perfect moment and/or convey the feelings you have through song. They've been with this business of theirs for about three years and counting and aim to keep going with it to help the community see the beauty of the Arts District. The best way to state their recognition is to point out that they have a location/school in Las Vegas as well as Hollywood and that they are owned by members of a band that have toured and been on international television. Also, for First Friday in the Arts District, their band performs with other local bands to help promote them as they have postings from local artists in their gallery! They have taken studies to help perfect their craft and are the friendliest people you'll meet! They have a strong love for Art and really wish to share that with the community and not let it die off.

First time I went to Neon Venus Art Theatre was for the First Friday Art Festival for March. Every first Friday of the month, downtown has a huge art festival featuring many local bands, artists, merchants, drinks, and anything you can image. People hear Las Vegas and they think of casinos, gambling, clubbing...well that's not culture. If you are a local, you know to stay away from those touristy locations. When my friends and I want to escape from that we go downtown, and it's places like Neon Venus Art Theatre that bring real down to earth artists together. The place was packed for First Friday with people of all ages, and it was the best musical vibe ever. They had walls full of art work from local upcoming artists, 6 different local bands rocking out on their stage, and crowd of people moshing in front of the stage. The owners were very welcoming, and their band Neon Venus played also. They definitely knew how to entertain the crowd. As for other services, they taught teen acting, and I actually had the privilege to see it when visiting this one time. There was about 10-12 kids (from ages 8-15) taking the class, and their supportive parents watching their rehearsal. It was really cute how much fun they were having. I checked out their website and they have singing, Spanish, adult acting lessons too. I would have to disagree with some of the negative comments. Talent can come from anywhere----not just Hollywood ; )
Neon Venus is the place to be!! I love going to the First Fridays every month, the bands that play there are sensational. The music is from all walks of life. The owners are first rate good loving and helping hands to the youth of Las Vegas. Their goal is to make sure the children can be themselves in all the acting classes that are provided by Peter and Lisette. The children are our future and for those less privaleged it is the perfect place to go. Just walk in our children shoes one day and see all the pressure that is bestowed on them. They need to be able to have a future without gangs and people who just don't care what happens to them. It is a great place to make new friends and to have an everlasting impression from Neon Venus, so they can say," I am a great person and can set my mind to whatever I will do in my future." Not only do they teach acting they also teach up and coming musicians to inprove their perception in what they play or sing. First Friday is a blast and a great time to be with friends. If you just see for yourself it will stick with you forever and you will be hooked just like me.
