Scholarships, Kids' Art, Adult Art
It's that time again, when the Corona Art Association announces our Maxine Piester Memorial Art Scholarship. Each spring, we award scholarships to CNUSD graduating seniors who will be majoring in some form of visual arts in college. The 2022 scholarship applications are now available on our website: https://www.coronaartassociation.org/scholarship-program
The number and amount of awards depends on our fundraising efforts. This year, we are selling these adorable hand-painted, mosaic'd, and/or beaded birdhouses for just $10 each. All money raised from the birdhouses will go into our scholarship fund. Please stop by the gallery Thursday-Sunday, 12pm-4pm to pick yours up. New designs are added each week.
CAA member artist Kathryn Duncan taught the "Healing Through Art" classes this month. The kids, and some of their caregivers, made "squash books", using shaving cream and watercolors. They had a lot of fun and created some great art!
This program is a partnership with the Stephan Center to host free art classes to children and youth to explore feelings of loss and grief continues on the fourth Tuesday and Wednesday of the month through June. Registration is required trough the Stephan Center:https://www.thestephancenter.org/program-registration-healing-through-art/
