Join us for our 8th Annual ART OFF Fundraiser on Saturday, November 3, 2018, 6:00-9:00pm

K12 Gallery & TEJAS is hosting their 8th annual ART OFF Fundraiser on Saturday, Nov. 3, 2018 from 6:00-9:00pm.  Make your plans now to join us for a fast-paced, creative evening!  

This is a great way for viewers to meet local artists while supporting the arts.  Enjoy our Behind the Scenes art exhibition, a live painting competition, heavy hors d'oeuvres, music, art demonstration, and a silent auction with gift baskets and artwork.

The ART OFF is our only fundraiser supporting after school art scholarships.  The demand for urban teen involvement in our programs continue to grow while financial support has not.  This fundraiser helps to provide scholarships to over 50% of our after school students, teens in our AP Studio Art Program and our Artist in Training (AIT) Program.

Purchase your tickets now: Tickets are $50 per person or $75 per couple and can be purchased at: https://dayton-live.com/events/artoff-2018/tickets.  Tickets can also be purchased at the door the night of the event.

For special corporate pricing or to be an ART OFF Sponsor, please contact Rebecca Cantrell (937) 461-5149 or email to: rcantrell@k12tejasgallery.org  

Proceeds from this event will support the Artist in Training (AIT) program and our building initiatives. The Artist in Training program fosters afterschool arts training and mentorship for the serious art student to aid in the development of professional portfolios and quality pieces for art competition. Our building initiatives will enable us to grow future arts programs in order to serve the Dayton and surrounding communities.

Help us bring art into the lives of people in our community!

Dayton City Paper, Cover story

A creative revolution has been underway in Dayton’s urban landscape. Evidence is found in the plethora of public murals that surprise and delight folks all around the city: the 90-foot flood wall along the Great Miami River, Second Street Market, and the stories-high replicas of masters such Klimt, Degas, and Cézanne, which brighten otherwise drab warehouse buildings at the corner of Third and Sears. Within the past 20 years, K12 Gallery & TEJAS (Teen Education and Joint Adult Studio) artists, along with students and community volunteers, have joined forces to fuel an artistic revolution in a city, best known, upon first glance, for its engineering glories of the past.
