Featured ArtSeed Teaching Artist
ArtSeed Presenters Packets showcase the many people who teach online classes, discuss their own work, or lecture on specific topics. If this one catches your attention, you can look forward to others we will post regularly on our website! They are useful to anyone interested in teaching or learning about art, particularly folks with youngsters stuck at home.


Aberswyth van Bueren “ArtSeed has been one of the biggest inspirations in my life not only for the art it produces but for the greater causes that it works towards. I recall one year when I was a kid attending ArtSeed’s Fine Arts Summer Intensive when I came to the realization that art wasn’t about broken off sections such as music, writing, performance, and visual arts. It was about the collaboration between them. It was also about using other academic disciplines to inform our art…”

Dina Kharag “Over the formative years, starting as a participant, then changing to other positions such as volunteer, Youth Council President, Counselor in Training, and presently an intern, ArtSeed has given me so much experience. I have gained knowledge in different mediums of art and maintaining a non-profit; both unique sets of skills that I can be able to use in my day to day life. I am eternally grateful for ArtSeed and proud of their accomplishments in changing lives, including my own.”

Big Thanks for Three Weeks of ArtSeed’s
Fine Arts Summer Intensive Camp!

This three-week, Monday-Friday, 9 am-5 pm schedule of live, slide, and interactive video online learning successfully provided structured activities for students who worked “side-by-side” (both on and off-screen) with professionals in a variety of disciplines. This workshop/seminar, held on Google Meet, developed individual portfolios, and collaborative projects for exhibition. We are grateful to our sponsors, California Arts Council, and the Sam Mazza Foundation who have made it possible to attract such extraordinary presenters, students, volunteers, and teaching artists who made these three weeks so memorable. We look forward to seeing you at our upcoming online Opening Reception and we hope you will be able to see the actual exhibition.

Solidarity and Resources for Black Lives Matter

“At this moment in history I hope you will join me in supporting causes that strive to make this country a more just and humane place. My husband and I support the Southern Poverty Law Center, almost fifty years on the front lines. I invite you to join me in helping them with their invaluable work. To be sure, in any event, there are many other worthy organizations. Click on William Scott’s painting to find even more anti-racist organizations that could use your support.” – Josefa Vaughan

“These past two decades have been hugely exciting for me, and the lives we’ve touched and things we’ve accomplished are deeply gratifying. To all of our teachers, volunteers, funders, and most of all, our hundreds of students, my profound gratitude. I am fortunate to continue to have all of you as part of ArtSeed and my life.”
