Committee Updates


Continuing Ed 
Tour JCO’s Warehouse
​Gallery Space, Art Haus Tour

Tuesday, January 24, 2017 
Art Docent Julie Jenkins has invited us to JCO’s new warehouse gallery space on University Avenue, across from Vasona Park.  We will meet at the Docent office at  10:30am  to walk/carpool and visit the space with Julie from 11-12. Artist Quinn Peck will join us at the gallery to discuss beautiful and atmospheric photo-based works from his series titled:  “Liminality:  Self-Reflection from the Space in Between.”  These reflective, yet interactive, pieces were created as part of his MFA work in 2009, three years before he began to transition from female to male, and evoke conversations on self and identity.  The visit will be announced at the General Meeting on 1/17. There is no fee, however we do have a 25 person limit, with a wait list.

We will be touring the Paramount Theatre in Oakland.  Built in 1931, this building is a classic example of over-the-top Art Deco architecture and design.  It was renovated in 1973 and is on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places and is a U.S. National and California Historic Landmark. The tour starts at  10:00 am  at 2025 Broadway in Oakland.  We will meet at the Art Docent Office and depart at  8:30.  Entrance fee is $5.00 per person and the tour lasts two hours.  We will plan to have lunch at a nearby restaurant.

Curriculum
Here's a new tool
to use with the 4th Grade Workshop!

Portrait Lesson – Flip Chart


Take an easel and this flip chart
to use in the classroom to help you
go step by step with the students.

As you flip over a page,
the Art Docent draws it
on their demo paper,
and then
the students can
follow along after the docent draws.
