The first annual “Party ARTy” event was held in Del Mar Sept. 15 to bring arts education to local classrooms in area schools facing hardship.  The event featured live art and musical performances along with gourmet food & wine pairings.

The beneficiary is ArtReach,  a not-for-profit organization that began in 2007 with the mission of increasing access to visual art education for K-6 students in schools throughout San Diego County that had no or scant art resources. Since then, ArtReach teaching artists have worked with thousands of kids to open their eyes to experience the joy and creativity only art can bring. Visit www.artreachsandiego.org.

    Thank you for the great article and photos! This is one of our wonderful volunteers from Banana Republic (you have a photo of our Knockaround sponsors as well). We had almost 14 volunteers from the Fashion Valley, La Jolla and Del Mar Banana Republic stores. They have been volunteering for ArtReach since 2010. We love them! Judy Berman Silbert, ArtReach Executive Director
