It's easy to


Join your business peers and positively impact kids' lives by becoming a member of Venice Arts' Business Art Circle. It's an easy way to invest in a preventive strategy that makes our neighborhoods safer, and builds our community and economy.

Venice Arts offers local youth a safe and nurturing environment during their least structured and, therefore, highest-risk times: after school, on weekends, and during the summer months.

Venice Arts’ Art Mentoring model is supported by research in the field indicating that consistent, quality art education and mentoring positively impacts youths' social development, academic achievement, and vocational opportunities. The impacts for low-income youth are particularly profound. A recent study shows that if such youth have substantial engagements with the arts they are more likely to go to college, get good grades, and obtain a degree; to hold a full-time job; and are less likely to require public assistance or food stamps.

Help our community and our children, meet other local business owners, and support the arts as a member of Venice Arts’ Business Art Circle!
