For Immediate Release: Free 2nd Saturdays Art Lesson at the California Center for the Arts, Escondido’s Education Art Studio Uses Ink Prints!

Escondido, California — :

The Education Department at the California Center for the Arts, Escondido is hosting another free 2nd Saturday art lesson on Saturday, November 10th from 10am-12:15pm in our Education Studio 2.

Using printing ink, brayers, and real produce leaves, we will mix biology, agriculture and art as we produce prints that inspire conversation about the food we eat, where it comes from, and how plants and humans are alike!

Our “Perishables” art lesson was adapted for the classroom by Center Teaching Artist, Brenda Townsend, and based on the work of DesEscondido/No Longer Hidden exhibiting artist, Melissa Smedley.

The museum will be open with pay-what-you-can admission to enjoy before or after your lesson.

Two 1-hour lessons are provided at 10am and 11:15am in Studio 2. This is a free event with limited capacity, so early arrival is recommended!
