Festival Receives Brodniak Award

The Arts Festival is very honored to be the recipient of the Walter A. Brodniak Cultural Education Award this year.  The award is given by the Anacortes School District to an individual or organization that has made significant contributions to arts education in our school district.

The Board and Staff at the Arts Festival work hard every day to support art for our community, with a focus on art for kids.  It is our pleasure to create funding opportunities for Local Artists in Schools, field trips to theatre and music venues, plays presented in schools, instruments, art supplies and so much more.

Our partnership with the Anacortes School District is one that we are proud to keep growing.  This award is very special to us and we are thankful to Tina Franulovich-Martin, Dr. Mark Wenzel, Carl Delutri, Jim Thompson, Candice Reid, all of the teachers teaching art to our kids, the artists supporting them and the students for engaging in the programs we sponsor.  Thank you!

Oh, and the event received a little press in the Skagit Valley Herald!
