How your donation helps
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.
Each semester the Friends of the Brentwood Art Center awards need-based scholarships and provides financial support to low-income adults and children by reducing or eliminating class fees. In 2017-2018 BAC awarded more than $58,000 in scholarships to 43 adults and 29 children in need.
