Focus on the Masters is an art appreciation program that documents, preserves and presents the works and lives of accomplished contemporary artists. FOTM’s award-winning in-school art program, Learning To See Outreach, inspires our youth using the lives and works of our extraordinary FOTM documented artists from our community. The lessons begin with a PowerPoint presentation about the life and work of these artists, including a round table discussion. Students then apply themselves to their own art projects and gain respect for themselves and others. Art anchors them to a greater caring for their community and to a greater acceptance of cultural diversity.

 

The Meiners Oaks Library exhibit and reception are sponsored by City of Ojai.
