Group Discounts on Art and Craft Supplies

Inclusion in “Third Fridays-Capitola Mall” art walk

Supporting artists are encouraged to volunteer, join committees, and have a direct impact on helping Santa Cruz County become a nationally recognized arts destination (all while promoting your own work).
RAA refers a lot of phone and onsite inquiries for custom work to our local artists. Referrals through RAA’s websites, customer list, and non-profit venues continue to grow and generate new clients for our local artists.

Supporting Artists receive a discount on participation in RAA's non-profit online art market for Santa Cruz County artists. Available only to residents of Santa Cruz County.
Supporting Artists are encouraged to teach classes in both of our non-profit venues. RAA will charge $8.00 per student, per class, for each class lasting 4 hours or less. An additional $15 per hour is charged for each hour over this 4 hour limit.
