Cherrywood Art Fair benefits local nonprofit Chula League and the Little Artist Big Artist program – a free after-school arts mentoring program that pairs professional artists with East Austin elementary school children to teach them how to turn a concept into art, and art into a business. Look for their little artist creations at the 200+ item silent auction, which also features gift cards from popular local businesses and donated wares from each of the Fair artists.
