Free Art Lesson Features the “King of the Jungle”

2nd Saturdays: Acrylic Lion Finger Painting

Escondido CA— The Education Department at the California Center for the Arts, Escondido is hosting another free 2nd Saturday art lesson on Saturday, November 9, 2019.

In this lesson, we’ll be “finger painting” the king of the jungle using no brushes and only bright acrylic colors.

While finger painting may seem rudimentary, it provides an artist many benefits such as focusing on the artistic process instead of the finished product, stimulating one’s creativity and imagination, and strengthening finger and hand muscles.

Enjoy XXV: The Silver Anniversary Exhibition before or after your lesson for free (donations accepted).

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 being offered at two separate times.  The first class is from 10am-11am and the second class is from 11:15am-12:15pm. 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 Blvd., and enter the studio hallway near the Grape Day Park entrance by the Escondido Historical Train Depot.
