Doors open at 6pm, class starts promptly at 7pm. Seating is limited, and preregistration is required, so invite your friends now and register ASAP!
On Thursday May 4th, 2017, our region will come together for one BIG Day of Giving (BIGDoG). BIG DoG is a giving challenge that over 600 non-profits in the Sacramento Region are participating in to raise over $7 million in 24 hours! Donors log in to Big DoG website between midnight and midnight on May 4th and make a tax-deductible donation (as little as $15.00) to the non-profits of their choice.

April Brayman is a Sacramento native who has worked at Southside Art Center for almost 4 years. April has always had a passion for the arts and she realized her potential as an artist in the third grade when her peers offered her their milk money for her drawings. As she grew as both a person and an artist, April realized that her passions for art were not limited to her own work and she became fascinated with the link between art and culture. April graduated from Sacramento State College with a BA in Art and a minor in Anthropology and has dedicated her life to using her skills as an artist to benefit and enrich our society. April has donated art works to numerous organizations throughout Sacramento and has been involved in several art shows which highlight social justice issues. In 2013, she began working at Southside Art Center as an art instructor in the mixed medium department and was recently promoted to the Art Program Supervisor. April states that she ”is thrilled to have found a career that combines her love of the arts and her passion for the non-profit sector” and that “she could not imagine a more fulfilling existence"
