Art Off Fundraiser


Join us for our 9th Annual ART OFF Fundraiser on Saturday, November 2, 2019 from 6:00-9:00 pm

Make your plans now to join us for a fast-paced, creative evening!

This is a great way for attendees to meet local artists while supporting the arts.  Enjoy the  photography/art exhibition, Behind the Scenes from Bill Franz. The event also features a live painting competition, heavy hors d’oeuvres, music, art demonstration, and a silent auction with gift baskets and artwork.

ART OFF is the only TEJAS 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 Programs 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:  Tickets can also be purchased at the door the night of the event.

The Urban Youth After school Art Program provides quality arts training and mentorship for the art students, grades 6-12, of various skills levels ( beginning to advanced)  to aid in the development of professional portfolios and quality pieces for art competition.

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