The City of Ojai Arts Commission is supporting the thriving creative arts community with a series of enrichment classes designed to equip artists with the knowledge and skills needed to secure grants for their unique projects. The first class will be held on Thursday, June 1, from 2 to 4 p.m. at the Ojai Valley Museum, 130 W. Ojai Ave. In addition to offering guidance on grant applications, the class will also review the Ojai Arts Commission grant application process, giving the participants a comprehensive understanding of the requirements and guidelines. The 2024 Ojai Arts Grant Application will be available online starting June 1 at: ca-ojai.civicplus.com/517/Arts-Grants.
