Local Art Show & Family Night

Stop by BGCSCC on First Friday in February to enjoy the fantastic art done by youth in Santa Cruz County. Our doors will be open to all community members, our families , and potential Club members & their families, as we showcase youth art and allow people “through the door into the Club”. We encourage prominent artists and art enthusiasts to join our “Art Family” at BGCSCC to celebrate the inspiring work done by youth and Club members. BGCSCC is always looking for ways to embrace new people into our art community who are passionate about celebrating and cultivating powerful and special art pieces.

Come see future artists in our community proudly display their art at Boys & Girls Clubs of Santa Cruz County. Categories include: monochromatic drawing, water color, print making, collage, multi-colored drawing, mixed media, pastels, oil painting, acrylic painting, and group projects. Our youth are thrilled to host First Friday at our Downtown Clubhouse and be a part of an event that celebrates art and self-expression.
