Artist Helen Pianga (pictured above with her hand-painted greeting cards) is the organizer of the AOA HIGH COUNTRY ART CLASSES, and helped raise public awareness of the classes at the recent fundraiser. www.primeraimage.com
The residents of Anza Valley, CA joined together on Sunday, March 21 this year to raise money for a building and outdoor fields for various Boys & Girls Club activities: and the venue for these new Artists of America (AOA) art classes!
This Boys & Girls club is a newly-formed charter & has a lot to do before the children have a place to meet.
First on the list is to raise the needed funds.
On that Sunday in March, over 150 residents of Anza Valley attended the High Country Boys & Girls Club Wine Tasting and Auction.
- Artists of America (AOA) will sponsor art classes even before a building is open!
Classes may be held in a school or a rented building.
“We hope to secure a grant to launch our HIGH COUNTRY ART CLASSES in September,” said organizer, Helen Pianga.
“But, with funding drying up due to the economy, it is dfficult."
- We have teachers available to teach classes in drawing, painting & ceramics.
- The students are excited about learning art skills.
- A little more fund raising & the classes will be ready to start!
