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 (firstname.lastname@example.org) who is compiling a list.

The dates and locations where the group will meet in January are: January 4 & 11 – Alviso Adobe, 3465 Old Foothill Rd., opens 10:00 am, restrooms and parking available; January 16 & 25 – Forest Home Farm, restrooms and parking available; **Dates & places are subject to change. Contact Becky Davies at firstname.lastname@example.org for confirmation or to join the group.
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.
The Next LAA Spring Art Show will be April 4 & 5, 2020 with Receiving on April 2. Save the dates. LAA is happy to announce that the LAA Spring Show will be supported in part by a grant from the City of Livermore Commission for the Arts. Details in the February Portfolio. In the meantime, be thinking of the volunteer job you would like to help with. Volunteers will be needed to set up the barn with the panels & covers, lights, etc. Receiving will also take several people, some checking in artists, some runners and of course hanging the show. The reception will need helpers. Want to volunteer? Contact show chair Christine McCall at email@example.com.
