Reception & Awards Ceremony Tuesday, May 21 at 5:30
The public is invited to join Focus on the Masters Archive & Library (FOTM) at the Ojai Library for a celebration of the creative spirit from students at Topa Topa Elementary and residents from Providence Ojai. Artwork created in the Learning To See Outreach (LTS) will be exhibited from May 9 – June 10, 2019 with a reception on Tuesday, May 21 from 5:30 – 6:30. Awards will be presented, and all are welcome to create their own beautiful leaf print with us!
FOTM documents the lives and works of extraordinary artists from our community, providing art programming for all ages. Each lesson of the innovative LTS in-school, hands-on art program is inspired by one of these artists, beginning with a PowerPoint presentation and demonstration. Students then apply themselves to their own art projects, gaining confidence and respect for themselves and others as they realize the rewards of creativity and concentrated endeavor. With an emphasis on critical thinking and innovation, art anchors them to a greater caring for their community and celebration of cultural diversity.
Providence Ojai is a skilled nursing facility providing compassionate and personal skilled care to its residents.
These programs and reception are sponsored by a grant from the City of Ojai.
