For Immediate Release: April’s 2nd Saturdays Free Art Lesson Features Fabric

Escondido, California — :

The Education Department at the California Center for the Arts, Escondido is hosting another free 2nd Saturday art lesson on Saturday, April 13, 2019.

Taking inspiration from Convergence/Convergencia artist, Irma Sofia Poeter, April’s 2nd Saturday art lesson will explore the unusual medium of fabric.

Poeter uses recycled or acquired textiles to sew intricate collages that speak to many different themes such as cultural identity, the human body, spiritual journeys, iconography, war, and many more.

For Poeter, the fabric she uses allows her to tell important stories and provides a healing, meditative experience for her mind and her heart.

This art project is one of self-expression, so we encourage guests to bring meaningful photos or objects, or to come ready to reflect on themes important to them to influence their work.

Options for creating animal-scapes or landscapes will be available as well.

2nd Saturday is a free event. There are two, 1-hour classes available at 10am and 11:15am. Space is limited and seats are available on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Enjoy the museum exhibition for free before or after your art lesson.

Donations are appreciated.
