Letter from our President
Art is love. Love is art.  We celebrated our love of art with this month’s fundraising Luncheon honoring our commitment and dedication to the arts and our wonderful Los Gatos children whose lives we enrich. Thank you to all of our Art Docents who lovingly fill our class schedules with their energies; sharing their passion for the arts. And thank you to the community whose love and support keep the Art Docents thriving. In the famous words of the Beatles, “Love is old. Love is new. Love is All. Love is you.”

I love what I do for the Art Docents, and what the Art Docents do for Los Gatos!

Best,
Michelle Abene
President Art Docents of Los Gatos

learn about her project called Lillistones on our blog


Art fully entered my life again in 2013 when I was introduced to the Art Docents. This incredibly generous, warm and well organized group and the beautifully thoughtful people in it, have contributed so much to my own personal growth. Not only my ever-growing understanding of art, but also my confidence in public speaking and digging a little deeper to understand myself. A special “Thank You” to my training class and teachers!...Lilli
