Photos from the Magnolia at Highland Art Show

This was the culmination of 2 courses taught by CSUSB art students in the last 7 weeks. A beginning painting class, and a “Reflection Project” in which each student was challenged to think about how they see themselves vs. how society sees them, and then create a mirror with their own perceptions represented in it.

We had a great turnout with friends and neighbors coming and going throughout the afternoon. The featured resident artists were proud to see their work on display and a slideshow of their time in class on the big screen. Some were even happy to tell their guests all about their process. They received certificates from their teachers, and shared their gratitude for the entire experience. Everyone enjoyed the food and each others’ company.

I personally can’t thank CSUSB enough for their continued support and willingness to come back every year. Their Art Instruction Dept. always seems to find outstanding students who are excited to teach and learn from our seniors. This was a very strong group and the residents took it all in and made the best of their short time with them.
