Escondido, California — :

The Education Department at the California Center for the Arts, Escondido is hosting another free 2nd Saturday art lesson on Saturday, September 14th, 2019.

Impressionism, a 19th Century style of art, characterized by vibrant colors, an emphasis on light, and vivid strokes that aim to capture the feeling of a subject over an exact replication, is the inspiration for September’s 2nd Saturday activity.

Led by our Center Teaching Artist, Nancy Robinson, participants will create a colorful tulip using soft chalk pastels.

Enjoy the exhibition on view, Edgar Degas: The Private Impressionist, Works on Paper by the Artist and his Circle, for free after your lesson.

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. Sign up using the link below.

The free art lesson is from 10am-11am and 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.
