Free Summer Art Lesson on June 9th Center for the Arts


Escondido, Ca. – May 30, 2018 — The Education Department at the California Center for the Arts, Escondido is once again offering a free 2nd Saturday art lesson on Saturday, June 9th for the first 2nd Saturday of the Summer!

Painting with paper is the perfect pastime on a pleasant Saturday morning! Who says you need acrylics and brushes to create a masterpiece? Pop in to learn how to cut and collage paper to look like a painted piece of art, similar to the style of Henri Matisse, Romare Bearden, and the more contemporary style of Kelly Rae Roberts and Megan Coyle. This lesson will be taught by Center Teaching Artist, Nancy Robinson.

2nd Saturday art lessons are always free, with materials provided. Just bring your creativity!

Lessons are held at 10am and 11:15am and are an hour long, and this month’s lesson will be held in Studio One, right next door to our usual Studio Two location.

RSVPs are recommended to ensure that we provide enough materials for you to create your work of art. If you are unable to RSVP, please still attend! We encourage arriving a few minutes early to secure a seat.
