Please join the Art Club for two exciting opportunities! First, we have started planning for our Second Annual Art Gala! The Art Gala is a time to show off your talents and express yourself! We hope to host a virtual gala where you can put art up for auction if you desire. Email jeanette.chadwick@empowergenerations.org with any questions.

Our second opportunity is the 2021 Congressional Art Competition! Learners from schools across California will be competing to have their artwork displayed in the Capitol. Please read below for more information.
