COLLAGE + WORKS ON PAPER
August 16-20, 2021
Monday to Friday | 12 noon to 3 pm
OXNARD TEENS! Enjoy an artsy Summer on us!
In this class we explore Collage (a composition made of various materials such as paper, cloth, or wood glued on a surface) and works on paper. Through different mediums, we’ll explore the elements of art (line, shape, form, space, value, texture, and color) and expand our creativity through the playful use of collage and mixed-media techniques.
Students are encouraged to use their sketchbook to form a habitual practice for idea exploration.
Space is VERY limited and is on a scholarship basis for ages 13-17 / Grades 8-12.

Santa Paula Art Museum
Young Artist Program
Calling all young artists!!! The Santa Paula Art Museum is looking for young artists who would like to join us for a FREE, 12-part class series to explore their talents, develop their artistic voice, and embrace their creative expression. During the course, students will work alongside professional artist Rafael Perea de la Cabada to practice skills, discuss ideas, learn about a variety of artists and their personal journeys, and ultimately develop and produce their own work of art. Students’ final works will be celebrated and shared with their community as a public artwork featured on display at the Santa Paula Art Museum.
This free program is available to teens ages 12 to 17. The course is limited to 10 students, chosen by lottery. Interested students are invited to submit an application to enter the drawing for a space in the class. Submit your application online here: https://airtable.com/shrCAC0iBQPidLXUG. (Students not selected for this cohort will be added to a wait-list and prioritized if the course is offered again.)
The Young Artist Program will meet on Friday afternoons, from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. beginning on May 28, 2021. There will be 12 sessions total. Once the cohort is selected we will do our best to accommodate individual needs to determine the final schedule including a summer break. All materials and light refreshments will be provided during each session.
The Museum is thrilled to be able to offer this course for free thanks to the generosity of the California Arts Council Local Impact Grant, in concert with the Back Family “Beautiful Day” Fund through the Ventura County Community Foundation.
