Thanks for your interest in the H2H Youth Art Scholarship Fund in Santa Barbara.

The motivation behind  the shows presented are simply put together for art's sake.
 
Heart2Hand Artist Resource Center is the vision of Andi Garcia, a Women's Economic Ventures of Santa Barbara graduate, 4th generation Santa Barbaran , artist, and art curator/agent.

This center is to include a multi-use facility where artists will come together to assist one another in the production and promotion  of their selected craft and creative outlets.

This center will also be a "free to reduced scale" art teaching resource for the area youth. Resident artists will teach and mentor H2H  youth scholarship recipients.

H2H Artist Resource Center has not found its suitable space nor has it attained  the full funding, the current economic climate and continued loss of public funds demands that the youth scholarship fund be pushed forward .

H2H,  is currently producing a series of benefit art shows at various venues in Santa Barbara as a "nomad" gallery venture to  raise funds for a youth art scholarship with the idea that each year  H2H will  sponsor two kids through art classes  at selected established studios.

H2H is also committed provide mentorship support to the students while  introducing then  to the process of submitting  their works  professionally , as well as, artistically.
