The Arts Education Brown Bag series is a bi-monthly event where we bring lunch to the library and learn from our arts education colleagues.
No RSVP necessary.
Our featured guest this month will be Patricia Zamora, who is a visual artist and manages the Citywide Creative Arts program for Boys & Girls Clubs of San Francisco
The Citywide Creative Arts program is an award-winning and nationally recognized art program that provides top quality art instruction while uniting youth, families and communities in a powerful way across San Francisco. The program provides art lessons and connects youth with the vibrant San Francisco Arts community, particularly those who might otherwise not have access. This connection allows youth to have access to new resources and opportunities that enhance their skills, confidence, leadership and professional social network.
