Leadership Circle

Donors who make contributions of $1,000 or more are invited to join the Brentwood Art Center Leadership Circle. This support council provides essential funds to support our scholarship and community outreach programs. Members are invited to private receptions and special events throughout the year. 

Veterans Art Program

At the Brentwood Art Center we believe in the transformative power of art. As part of our commitment to serving our community, last year three faculty members provided 225 hours of art instruction free of charge at the Westwood and Long Beach Veterans Administrations. Our Veterans exhibited their work in a culminating exhibition at the Geffen Playhouse and at our annual Student and Faculty exhibition.
