Huntington Beach Pier Plaza Art Affaire

Thank you to the Huntington Beach Pier Plaza Afaire! Our artists were made very welcome and were given two days of  fantastic opportunities to showcase, sell and present their wonderful art work to the many visitors at the event. Congratulations on a very fun and successful weekend!

Our artists had many opportunities to interact and practice their socialization and  business skills. Whether it was showcasing their wonderful creations or negotiating with other members of the community, they each experienced our wonderful community to its fullest. It was incredible to see how each individual artist responded to the many inquiries about their creative process and to watch their business skills grow!

This event allowed and encouraged the artists to develop friendships with their peers and to build business relationships with their customers/supporters. We are so thankful to the organizers- especially Ms. Pam Free, the manager and promoter of this event, for giving our artists the opportunity to participate in this event! They gained invaluable  experience in initiating and participating in business transactions. Our artists attendance and participation encourages them to build news skills and to grow their self-confidence and pride in what they are doing. Thank you so much!
