AVArts has supported arts education in Anderson Valley since 1999. The non-profit’s work reinforces community spirit and makes the arts a more visible and important presence in Anderson Valley. Over the years, and with support from local businesses, artists and the community, AVArts has awarded dozens of scholarships to graduating seniors pursuing the study of the arts in college as well as scholarships for students in grades 3rd -12th grade to attend special arts-related classes, workshops and events. AVArts also awards grants for supplemental arts programming in the elementary, junior and high schools, providing diverse, high quality visual, literary and performing arts programs to Anderson Valley students which would not otherwise be possible.
Tickets, which are $20, will be available at the door and include entry to the event, a glass of wine or grape juice and light local finger foods. For more information, visit www.av-arts.org or send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
