Abstract painting for A is for Art event

A is for Art

A is for Art, a program of the SDSU Children's Center, showcases the amazing potential for creative expression by children between 6 months to 5 years of age. Each spring, special A is for Art events are held to raise awareness and funds to promote art education at the Children’s Center. Each classroom selects an artist living and working in the United States to study and then uses that artist's painting techniques and style to create their own collaborative masterpiece. These paintings are then made available in a live auction at a special exhibition.


 Seventeenth Annual

2021 Exhibition & Auction
