Review for Hollywood Arts Council, Hollywood, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have participated and volunteered with the Hollywood Arts Council over 30 years. HAC is a fabulousorganization which supports, promotes and nutures all types of the Arts and Artists in Hollywood (fine art, mural art, photographic art, architectural art, dance art, etc). One of the main focuses of the Council is to provide after-school art programs for our students in the elementary schools of Hollywood who would have no arts education, otherwise.
Fun(d)raising projects during the year raise the money to hire professional artists to run these after-school projects. This is a very fun and valuable non-profit organization! Come join us!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Seeing the pleasure and pride on the children's faces as they learn new skills. They learn mask making, story writing, acting, photography, dance, etc. none of which is currently available in our elementary schools :( At the culmination of each 6 week program, art shows or plays are produced to show the students' family and friends what they have learned!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Broaden their membership base, raise more funds and spread the joy!

Role:  Volunteer & I assisted at the Childrens Arts Festival held annually at Paramount Studios, worked to assure the success of various silent and on-line fund raising auctions, designes and produced the decor for the Annual Charlies Awards, etc. .
