Friends of ArtQuest - Current Projects
Current Projects and Event Planning
In addition to our continued promotional, volunteer and financial support to ArtQuest, Friends of ArtQuest is planning a number of exciting major undertakings this year:
We are in the design phase of ArtQuest campus enhancements, working to make the ArtQuest buildings feel more like an artistic part of the campus. The images above represent our vision, which includes repairs to the buildings, a new paint scheme, landscape improvements, enhancing the Mendocino Avenue frontage, new signage and large graphic panels where student art work and event information can be displayed. We are also supporting efforts to move the ArtQuest office into part of the CMedia Lab building and to increase our collaborative relationship with them.
Website & Online Communication Improvements
A major goal of Friends of ArtQuest this year is to improve online communications for both the ArtQuest program and Friends of ArtQuest (FoAQ). We've already launched our new Friends of ArtQuest website and now, working with the ArtQuest faculty and staff, we plan to roll out a new and improved ArtQuest website and updated social media links. The new ArtQuest website will provide more accessible and up-to-date information about ArtQuest and will have dedicated individual Arts Specialty pages where each specialty can connect with their students and families, display student work and provide information about events, exhibitions, performances, awards etc..
“Back to ArtQuest” Fall Picnic a Success!
Thank you to all who attended our first annual Back to ArtQuest Fall Picnic! Approximately 250 people enjoyed a wonderful evening, pasta dinner and good company. A big Thank You to all of our volunteers who helped serve, staff the tables and cleanup. Thanks also to the SRHS administration and staff for their assistance. Let's do it again next year!
