Art and Kids, A Classic Combination
PAL is looking for artists who enjoy working with kids and art. There are several City venues who are interested in working with PAL/LAA members in the development of art programs and projects for children. These venues include the Aviso Adobe and the Museum on Main. Events include the Adobe Spring Festival in Pleasanton, the Ignite Art and Innovation in Pleasanton, and Splatter in Dublin. Age groups elementary through high school will be considered. The timing could be ongoing, seasonal, or event-specific. Tri-valley parents support the arts and are always looking for ways to get their kids involved. PAL and LAA have the knowledge to provide great programming in the visual arts while strengthening our valuable relationships with these treasured City sites. If you think you might be interested in future projects of this sort, please send an email to Beth Okurowski (email@example.com) who is compiling a list.

Jade Fon (1911-1983): The founder of a well-known watercolor workshop in Asilomar, California, Jade Fon became a California plein-air painter whose work combined Oriental influences and regionalism called “California Style.” His subjects range from cityscapes to wildlife in natural surroundings. He initiated plein-air painting classes and groups wherever he lived, and we are the lucky recipients of his tradition in our area. He was born in San Jose, California, was raised in Winslow, Arizona, and attended the University of Arizona at Flagstaff before continuing his higher education at the University of New Mexico. In the 1930s, he moved back to California where he attended the Art Students League in Los Angeles and exhibited with the California Water Color Society. In the art world, he was called “Jade Fon”, although his full name was Jade Fon Woo.
