Upcoming Programs

Virtual Family Art Day: Junk Journaling

Saturday, June 19, 2021 at 2:00-3:00 PM PT Imagine having a notebook filled with something you loved creating, where every page has a different story to tell. Imagine releasing the "junk" in your head and your home to create artful pages that capture an experience or a source of inspiration. Join CMATO and CReATE STUDIO as we continue our exploration of junk journaling, a mixed-media approach to journal keeping that combines art, writing and collage. Admission is free but preregistration is required. The session will be held via Zoom.

Artist Workshop: Alma Thomas Color Field Painting

Saturday, June 19, 2021 at 2:00-3:00 PM PT Join us as we create mosaic-like paintings influenced by African American artist, Alma Woodsey Thomas. Thomas sought inspiration everywhere, from the light and atmosphere of rural environments to the 1969 moon landing. These nature-inspired abstracts produced works such as Resurrection, which would garner the attention of former First Lady Michelle Obama and enter the White House's permanent collection. Previous painting experience is recommended but not required.
