Venice Arts is 20 Years Old!

venice arts kidsWatch out, Venice Arts is now  in the 20’s! There’s much to watch for – with fantastic photography by low-income youth of all ages seen at the vibrant Venice Arts building , featuring free workshops in photography, filmmaking, animation, and media arts at its Center for Media & Learning on Lincoln Blvd. in Venice, plus Documentary Programs conducted nationally and internationally.

Over the past twenty years, Venice Arts’ program of free arts instruction, mentoring, and internship opportunities  opened windows of possibility for poor and low-income children. Now Venice Arts has become a destination for adults, with free exhibitions, film screenings, and events through its Gallery & Public Programs.
