ArtReach is a San Diego based non-profit organization that empowers young people through art. They believe that art opens the door to never-ending possibilities and teaches young people to think critically and originally. They also believe that every child should have the opportunity to make art despite budget cuts and regardless of socioeconomic status. And so, ArtReach takes working artists into K-6 schools throughout San Diego County to provide hands-on visual art education workshops.
On March 23, 2014 ArtReach is partnering with the popular, family-owned restaurant Mia Francesca to offer a special painting class at its location at Del Mar Highlands Town Center. Proceeds from the event’s ticket price will support free visual arts education workshops in local K-6 schools that have no resources for art. During the event, Mia Francesca will offer attendees a special no-host menu featuring house favorites including Chef de Cuisine Woody Benitez’ Pollo Romano, Tilapia Fresca, Spinach Ravioli, Chicken Caesar Salad and a cheese-filled focaccia topped with arugula and speck. And you will also be able to select their favorite reds and whites from Mia Francesca’s wine list. How amazing is that?
So if you like you like to paint or if you simply want to give painting a try for the first time while enjoying a nice meal, a nice glass of Italian wine, come create your own masterpiece at Mia Francesca knowing that you will also be helping arts education in our schools. An ArtReach artist will be there to help you paint a “Flower Close Up” step-by-step. No experience is necessary to participate, just a desire to have a good time and do a good deed! And you don’t have to bring anything; all art materials are included in the ticket price of $45, not to mention that you will be able to enter raffles for theatre tickets and more.
WHEN: Sunday, March 23, 2014 from 2 – 5 p.m.
