Bellas Artes Annual Exhibition

Established in 2004, Bellas Artes offers in depth arts and cultural education to residents of Dahlia Court, Chapel Court and Casas de los Flores. Ninety percent of the residents are of Mexican and Latin American descent. The program is open to all ages. All materials and expenses are provided. Bellas Artes is a joint project of Peoples’ Self-Help Housing and the Carpinteria Arts Center.

The primary goal is to promote self esteem and maintain cultural heritage by combining education in the rich tradition of Latin American arts with projects specific to the North American culture and physical realities of the participants.

The program includes monthly after school workshops, 2-day spring and holiday workshops, and week long summer intensive workshops at each location. The Carpinteria Arts Center provides year round exhibition space for pieces created by Bellas Artes artists and features Bellas Artes artists in an all Gallery show along with a beautiful traditional reception honoring all the artists and patrons.

Bellas Artes-6
Periodic art and culture based excursions are also part of the program.

Bellas Artes is funded through grants and donations. The staff includes 3 paid instructors as well as 10+ volunteers with various professional backgrounds.
