Encinitas Friends of the Arts Artists Collective’s mission is to provide a positive force for visual and performing artists to support each other, create community, identify resources, and aid collaboration while giving back to our city.

The Artist Collective has a number of stated current goals but this fluid collaboration responds to the needs of the group:

  • The Artist Salon as a way to share a variety of ideas with expert guest speaker.
  • Advocacy for arts issues including a new Encinitas Arts and Culture Center
  • Exhibitions Education and Opportunities
  • Artists showcase meetings
  • Themed Promotion for art banners
  • Skills Workshops
  • Volunteer support for EFA programs and events

Education Outreach to bring some more art to our community is a future vision.

The EFA supports the Artist Collective with media coverage, express permitting, and a discounted $15 artist membership as well as opportunities for volunteering in others programs of the EFA.
