101 Artists' Colony

Encinitas, California

Our Mission

The 101 Artists’ Colony seeks to foster an awareness of all forms of art and encourages the interaction between artists and the community at large. We accomplish this by showcasing music, poetry, dance and theater events, participating in community art projects, and serving as a conduit between the artists and the community.
