Community Outreach

The SBPC is known as a supportive group of artists who also use their talents to serve our community.  Our artists may teach classes, mentor students, offer demonstrations, or donate artwork for local causes.  Through our Art Angels program, the SBPC fulfills wish lists for art teachers.  One or more scholarships may be awarded to Lee County High School seniors planning to major in visual arts or an art related college degree.
