The Visual Arts & Design Academy presents the 16th annual VADA Spring Art Show, with a public reception on Friday, April 29th from 5:00-8:00pm at the Community Arts Workshop (CAW) on the corner of Garden & Ortega Streets, in downtown Santa Barbara. Please join us for a wonderful art-filled evening with light refreshments provided by The Friends of VADA and VADA parent volunteers. Artworks will also be on view Saturday, April 30th, 10am-4pm (during Farmer’s Market) and Sunday, May 1st, noon-4pm.

The VADA Spring Art Show will feature original art and design projects from students in their Freshman, Sophomore, Junior and Senior years. Artwork mediums on display will include oil, acrylic and watercolor paintings, drawings, digital illustrations, designs and photography, prints, architectural models, sculptures, and more, including art integration projects from VADA’s academic English, History and Science classes. The Visual Arts & Design Academy (VADA) is a tuition-free learning community at Santa Barbara High School with about 225 culturally and economically diverse students, including at-risk youth. VADA integrates rigorous academic coursework with project-based, career-focused art and design instruction, in a supportive and creative environment. VADA is a California Partnership Academy funded in equal parts by the California Department of Education, the Santa Barbara Unified School District, and the 501(c)(3) non-profit organization Friends of VADA, which draws support from local businesses, philanthropic organizations and individual donors.

The Community Arts Workshop (CAW) at 631 Garden St in downtown Santa Barbara, provides affordable workspace to Santa Barbara artists to create, build, perform, teach, and engage the community.  Leased by the Santa Barbara Arts Collaborative as part of a City and County Regional Arts Master Plan initiative, and currently under renovation, the completed CAW space will include gallery, rehearsal, training and performance space, shop fabrication, and a center for collaboration and celebration.
