Young Del Mar: Student Art Canvases

To brighten the Holiday Season young artists at nine local schools created art on canvases paid for by the Del Mar Foundation.  The Foundation provided these canvases as a Young Del Mar program, in lieu of an in-person event we would normally sponsor during the holidays. Volunteers from the City’s Arts Advisory Committee worked with arts educators to organize the project. These cheery works of art, with the theme, “Ocean to Beach, Our Art Has Reach” are now on display in store windows throughout downtown, and will remain so through January 10th.programs.
