Welcome to EAA

The Escondido Art Association, a 501(c)3 charitable organization, passionately champions the cause of fine arts within our community. Our gallery on Grand Avenue serves as a vibrant platform for our members and local artists to showcase their talents, while our monthly meetings are alight with excitement as we host demonstrations by both local talents and nationally recognized artists. These gatherings not only foster creativity but also provide invaluable opportunities for learning and camaraderie among fellow artists.

Beyond our gallery walls, the EAA's impact ripples throughout the city of Escondido where we are deeply engaged in arts and culture within our community. We are proud to host educational programming with all-student exhibitions, award scholarships, conduct art classes, and proudly feature member artwork in downtown businesses through our members-only rotation program.

Your donation to the EAA is not only a testament to your support for the arts but also comes with the added benefit of being tax deductible. We wholeheartedly appreciate your contribution in helping us continue our mission of enriching our community through the power of art.
