Anaheim Arts Council fosters the promotion, support and visibility of local arts and culture by collaboration with individuals, organizations and businesses to enrich the quality of life.
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.
The annual Art In Public Places presentations took place on November 7th in the Council Chamber at City Hall, as is customary.
