Free Art Lesson is Inspired by Nature 2nd Saturdays: Mixed Media Landscape

Escondido, CA. – January, 2020 — The Education Department at the California Center for the Arts, Escondido is hosting another free 2nd Saturday art lesson on Saturday, February 8, 2020.   

This month’s lesson is inspired by the work of artist Bridget Rountree, featured in our current museum exhibition, Endangered: Exploring California’s Changing Ecosystems.

Her work speaks to the relationship between humans and nature. This project will focus on creating a mixed media artwork utilizing improvisational techniques and collage elements to create an abstract landscape.

Held the 2nd Saturday of every month, lessons include all materials, are adaptable for diverse learning levels, and are led by a Center Teaching artist. Seating is limited and registration is required.

The free art lesson is being offered at two separate times.  The first class is from 10am-11am and the second class is from 11:15am-12:15pm. Space is limited and seats are available on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Lessons take place in Studio 2. For easy access, park near the Boys & Girls Club in the public parking lot off of Woodward Ave. and N. Escondido Blvd., and enter the studio hallway near the Grape Day Park entrance by the Escondido Historical Train Depot.

For questions or additional information about this program, please contact Education Program Coordinator, Laurissa Rudgers, at 760-839-4176 or lrudgers@artcenter.org.
