Art in Action's 5th annual event, Atelier d’Artistes, which was the culmination of a yearlong celebration of impacting children's education through the Art in Action Program for 30 years was a big success. The event featured a spring luncheon, student artists, and silent auction on Monday, March 4, 2013 at the Sharon Heights Golf & Country Club in Menlo Park, CA.
Craig Watson, Director of the California Arts Council, shared his vision of the arts in California and discussed his new initiative, CREATE CA, which will provide “an educational environment for all California students that features arts education as a central part of the solution to the crisis in our schools.” Carolyn Johnson co-anchor of ABC7 News, and an Art in Action docent, was our master of ceremonies. Student artists from Abbott Middle School in San Mateo, CA shared their art experiences with the 300 attendees.
This exciting fundraiser supports Art in Action in our important work - bringing quality art education to children. Thanks to all who attended.
