The VADA Draw

the vada draw 2023The VADA DRAW raises more than 30 percent of VADA’s annual budget, funding art education for more than 300 student artists. 


What is the VADA DRAW?
Each year, local artists donate original art pieces that are raffled off at the VADA Draw event. Guests go home with a piece of art and enjoy a fabulous party that features local food and beverages, music and community. This year’s Draw will take place on April 22, 2023 at the Maune Contemporary Art Gallery in Santa Barbara from 7:00 -10:00 p.m.

“VADA is the place where creative kids can thrive, make friends, hone art ability,
and develop professional skills. They learn outside the classroom on field trips and
have internships and mentorships in the creative industry.
Not only is learning actually relevant and fun, but kids leave with the experiences
that give them a distinct advantage for their future.”

~ VADA Director, Daniel Barnett.
