ATTENTION ALL YOUNG ASPIRING ARTISTS!! PARTICIPANTS SOUGHT FOR JULY ART SHOW.
With aRc sponsorship and grant funding, an informal “junior auxiliary of Artists of Rico Colorado” has formed over the past winter months. In January, aRc hosted a Zentangle Class for the kids. This summer and fall the artists and sponsors would like to provide continued education and materials in support of our young Rico artists. Our first event is a POP UP ART SHOW in the first week of July (more details to come) and aRc invites all “emerging artists” to participate. Please note: we ask that interested artists be a minimum of 9 years-old, but exceptions will be considered.
In the past, Barbara Betts has been in contact with Clara, Emmy, Harper, Lydia, Ava, Bella, and Lana (or their designated parent) about this program. Participating in the JULY POP UP ART SHOW, our junior auxiliary will have the opportunity to display one to three pieces of their own work and aRc can assist with some material and preparation expenses. More summer activities (workshops, tours, coaching, etc.) are possible … if our young people show an interest in such activities.
We aRc members are an eclectic group … we have expertise in oil painting, writing, ceramics, sculpture, collage, pastels, water colors, glass artistry, sketching, woodworking, radio communications, metal working, photography, music and dance. We are committed to providing artistic and monetary support to develop our youngsters’ interests in the arts and welcome their participation!
As coordinator for the 2018 kids’ aRc program I ask that any aspiring artists (or their designees) contact me via FB, or call 562-252-2855, for further information. We only have two weeks to prepare for the ART SHOW so please let me know ASAP! Even if there’s no interest in the July show, give me a call if your aspiring artist would like to hear more about this program.
