March 15, 2014
San Diegans who have a penchant for painting can create their own masterpiece while benefiting arts education in schools on Sunday, March 23 from 2-5pm at Mia Francesca in the Del Mar Highlands Town Center. Proceeds will support ArtReach free visual arts education workshops in local K-6 schools that have no resources for art. An ArtReach artist will help guests paint a “Flower Close Up” step-by-step. No experience is necessary to participate, all art materials are included in the ticket price of $45, and attendees will be able to enter raffles for theatre tickets and more.

During the event, Mia Francesca will offer attendees a special no-host menu featuring house favorites including Chef de Cuisine Woody Benitez’ Pollo Romano, Tilapia Fresca, Spinach Ravioli, Chicken Caesar Salad and a cheese-filled focaccia topped with arugula and speck. Guests will also be able to select their favorite reds and whites from Mia Francesca’s wine list.

ArtReach believes that all youngsters regardless of socioeconomic status benefit from the opportunity to practice creative thinking and creative doing and strives to increase access to visual arts education by taking professional artists into K-6 schools throughout San Diego County to provide hands-on, standards-based workshops. ArtReach focuses on providing free workshops to students at schools that meet need criteria and that have no or scant visual arts education resources. ArtReach also provides fee-based workshops to schools or organization that have the ability to pay.
