A Festival of Arts Foundation grant of $3,000 made possible three of summer art enrichment programs on the Festival of Arts’ grounds.
Festival of Arts hosted seventh and eighth grade students participating in the Pacific Symphony’s summer arts immersion program, Arts-X-Press. The 270 students enjoyed complimentary hands-on art workshops and instruction in printmaking, scratch art and ceramics at the festival’s art center. They also went on a private backstage tour of the Pageant of the Masters followed by a performance of “The Grand Tour”.
Funding also allowed the Boys & Girls Club’s photo club members to meet artists, take photos, view the art and participate in art workshops.
Another 200 children took part in free workshops on Family Art Day.
