Art in the Afternoon – Saturday, May 12, 2018 at the Venice Skills Center
AWBW’s annual family-friendly art festival attracts over 700 people from all over Southern California for a day of hands-on art experiences, carnival games, silent auctions, delicious food, music, celebrity appearances and many more fun-filled activities.
Held twice a year at our Venice studios, our Open Houses are a great way to hear the latest news at the organization, learn about ways to get involved, hear from a speaker in our programs, and participate in a mini art workshop while enjoying a delicious dinner.
