18th Annual ArtEsteem Self as Super Hero Exhibit, Closing Reception

We invite you to our closing reception to celebrate another successful ArtEsteem exhibition, on Saturday, October 1st from 1pm - 3pm at Flax Art & Design.

Every year, we team up with 100's of Oakland Youth and ask them to re-imagine themselves as superheroes with powers to transform their community. The result is a colorful art exhibition that provides a creative platform for Oakland families, artists, and youth to come together through a journey of self-exploration and community empowerment.

Since July 21st, select pieces created by our ArtEsteem students have been on exhibit at Flax's Art & Design store in Oakland.

We invite you to come celebrate another successful exhibition with us on Saturday, October 1st from 1pm - 3pm at FLAX!

The life-sized portraits are for sale, with 50% of the proceeds going directly to the student artists, and the other 50% going towards the future work of ArtEsteem.

ArtEsteem focuses on, but is not limited to, serving children and youth who are at risk for violence and other dangerous behaviors. It aims to increase students’ capacity for leadership and enhance artistic skills in schools where art classes have been canceled due to budget cuts. ArtEsteem provides on-site art instruction, workshops and assemblies that impact over 2500 public-school children annually.

Each year, the program culminates in this professionally produced art exhibition that promotes young talent, provides a vehicle for public acknowledgment of their efforts, supports creative expression, and celebrates the importance of the arts.

The OpEd Project

Learn how to communicate your passions!

This seminar focuses on expertise, thought leadership and impact. 

This highly interactive one and half day seminar will challenge you to think more carefully and more expansively about your knowledge and experience, and why it matters. We will explore the source of credibility; the patterns and elements of powerful evidence-based argument; the difference between being "right" and being effective; how to preach beyond the choir; and ow think bigger-so that we can have greater influence and value in the world. You will emerge with a powerful argument for an idea or cause you believe in, and a network of high-level mentors. This seminar is about empowering you to find your voice and make a case for the ideas and causes you believe in-whether in print, online, on TV, before your board of directors, to potential funders or investors, or on the steps of congress. And it is about the collective difference we can all make by doing so.  Get your ideas published!
