Student art exhibit and free workshop
Submitted By Sheryl Craig
NewPark Mall's Cultural Corner will exhibit artwork painted and drawn by middle and high school students from Alsion Montessori School in Fremont. Alsion Art Teacher Maria Grazia Romero will also offer free art workshop classes focusing on acrylics and watercolors.
A native Italian, Romero's involvement in the arts started early. By the time she was in high school, she already received national recognition for her artwork. She completed her formal education with a doctoral degree in Economics at the University of Rome, Italy. After coming to North America, she furthered her education in life drawing, print making, photography, mass media psychology, computer graphics, history of art and history of art criticism.
The public is invited to attend the exhibit's kick-off party on Wednesday, September 12. The exhibit is free and open to the public and runs from September 8 - 30. To sign up for a free watercolor class on Saturday, September 15 or acrylic class on Saturday, September 22, call (510) 651-3161 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Workshop days and times are subject to change.
Local artists interested in displaying their work at the new Cultural Corner are invited to call Kenia Ortiz at (510) 284-1600.
