Welcome to EAA
The Escondido Art Association is a 501(c)3 charitable organization. We are dedicated to promoting fine arts in our community. Through our gallery on Grand Avenue we provide an outlet for our members and other local artists to display their work. We also host demonstrations by local and nationally known artists at our monthly meetings, providing a place for members to learn new techniques and socialize with fellow artists. The EAA is active in the community of Escondido: hosting shows benefiting local causes, giving scholarships to local high school students, teaching art classes, and featuring member artwork in downtown businesses.
Your donation is tax deductible and greatly appreciated.
