Santa Cruz Art League Board Members & Staff

The mission of the Art League is to function as an agent for the artistic experience. The Santa Cruz Art League encourages visual and performing arts in an environment that is supportive to the artist, to students, and to the community. Approximately twelve art shows are held each year, some for members, some juried, and some invitational. We hold three-hour, five- to six-week long classes and monthly weekend workshops throughout the year, as well as children’s theater classes, theater productions, and monthly book readings and signings by local authors.
