SAN RAFAEL, Calif. – May 13, 2022 – Last year in response to the pandemic, DrawBridge piloted a new expressive arts program to bring children the creativity and fun of summer camp online. The adventure continues this summer with DrawBridge Summer Art Adventures, an engaging, in-person program offered at partner sites across the Bay Area.

Led by trained facilitators and local artists, DrawBridge Summer Art Adventures offers children ages five and up the chance to explore themes of art, nature, and community in their neighborhoods and beyond. The program is free for participating children who reside in homeless shelters, affordable housing facilities, or attend DrawBridge community art groups in Alameda, Marin, San Francisco, San Mateo or Santa Cruz counties.

There are also opportunities for the public to join Summer Art Adventures at the following sites:

  • Albert J. Boro Community Center
