Art Show Take-In, Cricut Club, Mosaic Birdhouse Open Studio
We were pleased to welcome back several CAA members at our Tuesday, January 11th General Meeting. We enjoyed an origami demonstration by CAA member, Kazu Ueda. Thank you, Kazu!
We'll be having an Open Studio on Thursday, January 13 from 2-6pm preparing birdhouses for our 2022 Scholarship fundraiser. This is primarily a CAA member event, however, if you are not a member and want to help us mosaic and paint tiny birdhouses, you are welcome to come! The birdhouses will cost $10 when they are finished and all proceeds will go into our Maxine Piester Memorial Scholarship for CNUSD graduates studying visual arts in college.
Take-in for our January/February "Celebration!" Art Show will be 12-4pm, January 14-16 - https://www.coronaartassociation.org/art-exhibit-schedule
The Artist Reception will be on Sat., Jan. 22 at 6pm.
If you have art in the previous art show or on the Winner's Wall, remember to pick up your entries during take-in.
Our art shows are open to the public! We encourage community members, as well as paid CAA members, to enter our bimonthly art shows. Please visit our website to learn more about it. https://www.coronaartassociation.org/art-shows
Did you get a Cricut machine for Christmas and are still trying to figure it out? Maybe it was *last* Christmas and you still haven't taken it out of the box? Or are you a vinyl-cutting, heat-transferring Design Space superuser? Or something in between?
