The CAEA Scholarships
This year we are committed to raising even more funds for the California Art Education Association scholarships for high school seniors. Based on a successful program from Vancouver, Canada, we created limited edition prints of well-known successful California artists. The artists donated the image reproductions to CAEA. This year the artists represent a variety of styles, and all are extremely collectible.
These prints also make a thoughtful gift. Each is printed on cotton rag paper of the highest grade printed in lightfast ink guaranteed to last 150 years, and each print is signed and numbered by the artist.
Please click here if you would like to purchase one or more of these prints. Your donation will help make a student’s dream come true.
