I’ve always been a supporter of the arts, and now that my five year old (pictured above at only 2 years old) says she wants to be an artist when she grows up, I want to do everything I can to make sure art programs are readily available to kids in our schools and in our community. Thanks to a nonprofit called ArtReach, kids in grades K-6 throughout San Diego County get to learn from and work with working artists who provide hands-on visual art education workshops.
ArtReach takes professional artists into elementary schools throughout San Diego County to provide standards-based, visual art workshops. ArtReach provides both fee for service programs and, when able, grant-funded free programs for schools that have few or no art resources and no ability to pay.
As an annual fundraiser, ArtReach puts on a “Party Arty” to support their educational programs in elementary schools.
This year’s Party Arty will be held on Sunday, September 15th, 2013, from 4:00-7:00pm at the Carlson Residence at 4542 North Lane, Del Mar, CA. The tickets cost $100.00 before the event and $120.00 at the door. For the price of admission you will enjoy food, wine & beer by Festivities Catering, music by Tom Griesgraber, and performance art by Stephen Fishwick.
Event activities include: opportunity drawings, wine bottle ring toss and art with ArtReach artists. And the best part about it is the pair of Knockaround sunglasses you’ll receive as swag.
And if you purchase soon, you’ll receive a free raffle ticket, so hop to it, and help support our community’s arts education!
ArtReach is associated with ArtWalk San Diego.
