For Immediate Release: May’s 2nd Saturdays Free Art Lesson Features Texture Painting


Escondido, California — :

The Education Department at the California Center for the Arts, Escondido is hosting another free 2nd Saturday art lesson on Saturday, May 11, 2019.

Taking inspiration from Convergence/Convergencia artist, Dennis Ellman, this 2nd Saturday lesson will teach you techniques based on impasto painting, using affordable materials.

Impasto is a technique used in painting, where paint is laid on an area of the surface in very thick layers, usually thick enough that the brush or painting-knife strokes are visible.

Paint can also be mixed right on the canvas. When dry, impasto provides texture; the paint appears to be coming out of the canvas.

Ellman’s work is based in the rich and full textures and colors of life, and relishes the discovery of new ways to portray elements of life with various textural mediums and new color combinations.

2nd Saturday is a free event, but donations are appreciated. 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.

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.

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