We had wonderful field trip with students from St.Aloysius School last Friday! Grades 2nd-8th joined us (144 students!) at our studio to create works of art to bring home to show all their friends and family. Their day consisted of creating Great Works inspired by artist Gabriella Denton, decorating clay critters with googly eyes, designing a mini zentangle and to wrap up a great day; some students hung out and had their lunch outside on the lawn and enjoyed the beautiful weather.
Thank you St. Aloysius for bringing such a wonderful group of kids!
We can't wait to have you back for another fun and exciting day!
We all had so much fun this past Friday for our monthly $5 Friday: community art night! Many talented artists joined us on this rainy night and created some amazing works of art inspired by the Chinese New Year!
We had a special guest at our studio last week! KCLU news director, Lance Orozco stopped by to interview our director, Nan Young about the Conejo Public Art Project - Conejo Cottontails! One of our featured artists and maker of the original cottontail maquette, Cate Hartenstein, was also at the studio working on her groovy Cottontail Sculpture!
