The Anaheim Arts Council ][AAC] convened representatives of member organizations, business, educators, city staff and private citizens to gather information on three areas of concerns to the AAC. We specifically sought to hear opinions on three [3] areas: purpose, philosophy and priorities. This was conducted through asking four [4] questions: (1) What is the purpose of the AAC and the state of the arts in Anaheim? (2) How can membership growth and financial growth be encouraged?  (3) How can the AAC better share, engage and articulate the AAC vision city-wide to business, the city and educators? And (4) What areas need immediate attention?

On June 1st, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Anaheim were awarded a grant for our Little Picassos program. This program selects the gifted art students in our general arts & crafts activities and places them in advanced art classes with local artists. Frank Castillo, better known as Franky Castle, was the artist we initially chose to run the first art lesson. Little did we know that the program would become based entirely around Franky's painting techniques. As a fellow son of Anaheim, Franky connected well with our youth and they with him.
