This is not the artist-starving-in-the-attic-for-his-art activity that sometimes gets confused with creativity.

What an exciting few weeks it has been for Arts Education in Huntington Beach!

April 20, 2012

We're very excited for tonight's "Creative Visions and Imagination Celebration" Gala Reception at the Art Center on Main Street! Stop by tonight between 6:00pm and 8:00pm to support and celebrate our young local artists.

It's a unique opportunity to view, in one gallery, the progress that our students make in visual arts from kindergarten through grade 12. And this year there will be live choral and band performances as well! 

Stop by the HB Alliance for Arts Education table to sign up for our email list, grab some literature on the importance of arts education and just say hello.

Admission is free and open to the public. If you cannot make it tonight, the exhibit will run between April 18th and April 28th. For more information, please visit: http://www.huntingtonbeachartcenter.org/exhibitions.php.
