Get ready for Art-a-thon 2019!

What: ArtSeed’s 11th Annual Earth Week Art-a-thon is a 10-hour art-and-music-making benefit marathon. Participants are invited to try all sorts of art-making, watch demonstrations, receive guidance available, or to simply enjoy live music and free food and drink as they watch others make stuff. Related exhibition submission opportunities are also open to everyone, all ages and skill levels.

When: Saturday, April 27, 2019, 10 am to 8 pm.

Where: The Presidio of San Francisco, Tides Converge, 1016 Torney Ave. off Lincoln Blvd. Please use the entrance at the rear of the building. Easy parking in the adjacent lot off Edie Road. Or take PresidiGo Shuttle (free) or Muni lines 28, 30, 43, and 45. Entrance is through doors facing the large parking lot at the building’s rear. Wheelchair accessible.

Why: The Art-a-thon kicks off ArtSeed’s current programming theme of Freedom that culminates in a large ArtSeed exhibition in the Presidio Fall 2019. The goal of the Art-a-thon is also to raise funds to keep Summer Intensives and art-making mentorships available to all regardless of ability to pay. A suggested door donation of $20/Adults & $10/children and seniors applies plus every $20 given, raised or pledged by friends earns tickets to win various fabulous prizes. No one turned away for lack of funds.
