Dandiya fundraiser provides creative education

Every child deserves a comprehensive education that includes global learning and the arts. Induz Ð Where Art Meets Heartª, a Bay Area non-profit has been working over the last decade to address the gap that exists in our education system, providing holistic education for children. The mission of Induz is to empower children to be creative and innovative through the arts.

Research has shown that three out of four children in low-income households have no access to art education. Low-income students engaged in the arts are twice as likely to graduate college as their peers with no arts education. Students who study art are four times more likely to be recognized for academic achievement. Art education helps achieve better academic, cognitive, personal and social outcomes.

Artists explore Meaning Through Making

Adobe Art Gallery presents the 40th Area Artists Annual Juried Exhibit: Meaning Through Making. This exhibit explores the relationship between process, materials, and expression. Emphasis is placed on the essential connection between what the artists use to express themselves and how meaning is discovered through their hand.

Juror Christine Koppes, Assistant Curator at the Bedford Gallery, had the extremely challenging task of selecting 50 works of art for exhibition from the 131 pieces entered. She worked in a thoughtful manner to include a diversity of mediums and content. Koppes was impressed with the wide range of materials used including acrylic, assemblage, ceramic, clay, collage, colored pencil, encaustic, glass, gouache, mixed media, oil, pastel, photography, textiles, watercolor, and wood. She appreciated the amount of experimental work, saw evidence of play and discovery, and could tell that the artists were having fun.
