History

History

In 1997, this former train depot/warehouse was converted into an arts education facility. Over the years, we have received generous support from many local organizations including the Fallbrook Village Rotary Club, the Rotary Club of Fallbrook, the Fallbrook Angel Society, Legacy Endowment, Rally for Children, and many generous artists and artisans, local arts patrons, private donors and volunteers.

Fallbrook School of the Arts was designed to be a place where creativity is stimulated in people of all walks of life and virtually all ages.

Giving Opportunities

Giving Opportunities

Our success as an institution is dependant on support from our community and beyond. As we continue in our mission, we strive to provide a place where artists of all backgrounds and skill levels can gather as a community to learn, grow and create.

It is our dream to create a world class arts destination and special events facility for the community and for visiting artists from all over the world. A Master Plan is in early development that will utilize modern green technologies and sustainable building practices. A phased implementation will allow the FSA to showcase the process and benefits of responsible development within current social, environmental and economic conditions.

As a non-profit arts education facility, we rely upon financial support to cover our annual expenses. A business plan with our operating expenses is available by request. For further information about our financial requirements, please contact us at 760.728.1414
