The first ARTfeast in 1998 included a handful of Santa Fe galleries that asked for donations during their Friday evening openings. Today, ARTfeast has grown to a weekend of artful events combined with sensational savories and drink, the proceeds from which benefit art programs for Santa Fe’s youth.
WHO IS ARTSMART?
ARTsmart was founded in 1993 to address the lack of funding for art programs and supplies in Santa Fe public schools. In a city built on and sustained by the arts, ARTsmart is committed to funding the creative thinkers of tomorrow.
Fine Arts for Children & Teens is committed to introducing young people to the power of art. We believe artmaking is an engaging, integrative process that teaches positive communication, problem solving, literacy, awareness, and lifelong learning skills. By working with students and teachers, FACT encourages arts learning that is rigorous and fun -- and that positively influences student success.
