HONEY BEARS RALLY TO FIGHT COVID19 • April, 2020
FAMED SF MURAL ARTIST fnnch and his iconic Honey Bears have become social distancing cheerleaders and fundraisers for financially strapped artists during this COVID19 battle.

SUPPORT LEAP ARTS EDUCATION! • October, 2019
MUST-SEE: each fall, Leap Arts in Education corrals teams of dedicated architects, designers, contractors & engineers--each paired with an area elementary school--to create fabulous GIANT works of sandcastle art in a heated competition that raises funds for Leap’s work augmenting art instruction in underserved Bay Area schools. Although DAA has passed the reins of our fab team over to new blood, we continue to support this wonderful entity and ask you to consider making a donation.
LEAP ARTS IN EDUCATION places art residency programs in underfunded Bay Area elementary and middle schools. By utilizing professional artists/designers as teachers, LEAP works to enhance classroom curriculum and promote student creativity. As designers & builders, we feel a strong connection between Leap’s work and our own stories of teacher inspiration. Here's to all of the great work they do!
