A message from our Executive Director, David Powdrell

ED David 1

With immense gratitude to our donors, members, volunteers, contractors, staff and our board of directors, THE ARTS ARE ALIVE IN CARPINTERIA!

Our new building at 865 Linden Avenue (the former Cajun Kitchen) has been made into a premier small-town community arts center with galleries, studios, a wonderful serving kitchen, workshop space and more.  None of this would have happened without the incredible support of our community of Carpinteria.

The arts matter!  Our organization is passionate about the importance of the arts, all the arts; poetry, dance, music, painting, ceramics, storytelling and more.

Our goal is not necessarily to develop more painters.  Rather, we hope to see our children think more creatively, challenge themselves and take risks through arts education.  We promote and encourage coloring outside the box.

There are many ways to get involved at our arts center.  We are constantly looking for volunteers to support our programs and events.  Hosting in our gallery is a wonderful way to meet fun new people.  Take a class, pick up a ukulele, write a poem, or paint a picture.  See where the arts take you

Artfully yours,
David Powdrell
Executive Director
