Kids Draw Architecture (KDA) Gallery Opening Reception

Opening Reception, Saturday Nov. 20, 2021 1-4pm
The Architectural Foundation Gallery

The Architectural Foundation of Santa Barbara is pleased to announce Kids Draw Architecture Gallery Opening Reception. 

Kids Draw Architecture (KDA) program is designed to help the participants learn about architecture and the skill of drawing. This year, with the continuing Covid 19 pandemic, instead of meeting in person as is the norm, the participants masked up and kept their distance while venturing out to find architectural inspiration in our built environment to sketch, learn, and to work on drawing skills.

This year’s exhibition will feature drawings from KDA’s 2021 program and will be on display until December 12, 2021. The 2022 calendars highlighting the work will be available for purchase at the reception, at AFSB and soon in local bookstores.

The Architectural Foundation of Santa Barbara is pleased to present Local Treasures, an exhibition of artworks by thirty artists who have exhibited at the Architectural Foundation Gallery during the past seven years.

Local Treasures honors the extraordinary quality, diversity, and vitality of the artists whose work has recently graced the walls of the Architectural Foundation Gallery. Initiated during the 1990s, the Gallery exhibited watercolor paintings by local architects of Santa Barbara. Later, the Gallery committee expanded its mission to present exhibitions of contemporary art, architecture, and design. Throughout the pandemic, following all COVID-19 protocols, the Gallery has maintained its schedule of exhibitions with the support of dedicated volunteers.
