Calling all Artists!


Kids Club Art Show on Tuesday!

Bring your favorite works of art that you have created to display. Drawings, paintings, collages, sculptures, mosaics, quilts, sewn items — they’re all art and all welcome to display! Hands-on art activities will also be available for all ages to get creative with! (Paint will be involved, so a smock / big old t-shirt to throw on is recommended!)

If they would like to display in our art contest as well, please let us know upon arrival. Thanks to Jean Secola, a mountain artist, who will be our judge.

There will be three categories for prizes:

Double-digits (10 and up)

Single digit (9 and younger).

Only first place for each will be awarded, decided by judges. Then all of the work would be eligible for the kids’ choice award, which the kids vote on.

Moms, dads, grandmas, uncles and aunties may all display art as well.

Art activities:

Melanie will be doing a marble art painting activity, Jessica will do a quick 3-d drawing lesson, Marie will show kids some tips for using watercolors, and Caitlin wants to lead a splatter painting activity. Stacy will also have some finger paints for the littles, and Seth will teach some origami.

9:15 – Bring your art to the Outreach Center at the Observatory (Formerly the Palomar School). Go to the end of Canfield Road, just past the Forest Service, last driveway on the left before you get to the Observatory.

Storytime for the littles will be from 9:30-10. Art show starts immediately after.

Everyone is invited to bring snacks to share.  No nuts, please.

We are looking good!! Hope you can all join in the fun!
