Free family-friendly art lesson “embosses” you with foil

An example of embossing (of an owl,) which will be the subject of free lessons August 10 at Studio 2 of the California Center for the Arts, Escondido.

 The Education Department at the California Center for the Arts, Escondido is hosting another free 2nd Saturday art lesson on Saturday, August 10.   

Express your creativity during a free, family-friendly, one-hour art activity! This month’s lesson focuses on embossing, a process of creating raised relief images.

Taking inspiration from Edgar Degas’ prints on view in the Edgar Degas: The Private Impressionist, Works on Paper by the Artist and his Circle exhibition in our museum, you will then use your embossing to create a print of your own. After the lesson, head over to the museum to view the exhibition for free!

Held the 2nd Saturday of every month, lessons include all materials, are adaptable for diverse learning levels, and are led by a Center Teaching artist. Seating is limited and registration is required. Sign up using the link below.

The free art lesson is from 10 a.m.-11 a.m. and space is limited and seats are available on a first-come, first-serve basis.

 Lessons take place in Studio 2. For easy access, park near the Boys & Girls Club in the public parking lot off of Woodward Ave. and N. Escondido Boulevard, and enter the studio hallway near the Grape Day Park entrance by the Escondido Historical Train Depot.
