More than 200 works of art will be on display from nearly 100 members of Southern California Artists Painting for the Environment - SCAPE - and for sale during the three-day ART ALONG THE CREEK this Memorial Day Weekend. Complemented by live music from a variety of small bands on a private estate in Santa Barbara nestled in the woods, among the sycamores along Mission Creek, it’s only a block away from the majestic Santa Barbara Mission and the seminal "I Madonnari" Italian Street Painting Festival that takes place the same weekend. This is the 6th annual juried art show for the group known primarily for top quality plein air landscapes, but this wide-ranging show includes portraits and figurative art, still life and florals, alongside contemporary, surreal, and abstract art as well. 40% of each purchase is tax deductible as it goes to the creek restoration project of Phoenix House, a non-profit, residential mental health treatment agency.
Art Along the Creek is a free, dog-friendly festival and opens on Saturday, May 25 from 2 – 6 pm, Sunday 5.26 & Monday 5.27 show hours are 11 am to 6 pm.

ABOUT: Six schools strong will sing six contemporary tunes + one in the first “All School’s Chorus” concert. More than 100 children will be on stage along with special appearances from LaColina’s OutBurst Group and Santa Barbara Children’s Chorus Concert Chorus. The elementary schools participating throughout Santa Barbara and Goleta are: Adams Elementary with Nadia Stehmeier, Cleveland Elementary with Kearney Vander Sal, Foothills Elementary with Susannah Hoffman, La Colina Jr. High with Shannon Saleh, Monroe Elementary with Elisabeth "Liz" Caruso. Also, concert chorus with Erin Bonski Evans.
With funding provided by The Santa Barbara Bowl Foundation, Santa Barbara Children’s Chorus launched a new program this year to bring choral music education into the local elementary schools. This concert is the culmination of the new program. Since last fall, these six schools have received materials and instructions on how to get a choral group together. Teachers at those schools recruit students for their own chorus and have learned six contemporary choral songs. All this work culminates with an all day music workshop for the schools with the public performance as the crescendo of the hours of work, study and song.
Santa Barbara Children’s Chorus is a county-wide, non-denominational music education and performing organization for children ages 5-14. We provide children of the community with the opportunity for musical training and performing in a fun and challenging environment. Founded in 1993, SBCC will be here for years to come to serve your children. With the continuing decline in funding for school-based music programs, especially in the elementary and secondary school levels, SBCC is dedicated to filling a vital gap in bringing the benefits of music and vocal performance to children.
