Creating Art for Others

What inspires you? What’s your personal artistic journey? Ruth Balbach’s creative path took her from managing creative teams for Target to designing and branding for DreamWorks Animation.

Ruth will tell us about the conflicts, revelations, and transformations that carved her unique path, and will give a presentation illustrating that where you end up might not be the same place you thought you were headed.

Thursday – February 25, 2016 – 6:30pm, at the Old Town Newhall Library

Thanks to our partners CalArts Community Arts Partnership (CAP) and the City of Santa Clarita’s Thursdays@Newhall.

Relax and Craft: Now at 2 Locations!

We’re pleased to announce that starting in February, our free craft workshop for adults will be held at two locations in Santa Clarita. Every 4th Wednesday, we continue our session at the Old Town Newhall Library, and now every 3rd Tuesday at the Canyon Country Jo Anne Darcy Library.

In February, our craft is making zenstones. Using repeat patterning in both black & white and color we will be creating beautiful stones which can either be displayed indoors or outdoors. All materials provided, plus tips on sealing and prepping your stones. No prior registration required.

Drawing the bad and the good

Renowned courtroom artist Bill Robles has drawn dozens of the most famous and infamous faces of our time. Michael Jackson, Paris Hilton and O.J. Simpson are among the rogues gallery of defendants Robles has drawn for television news.

His 45-year career has gained Robles numerous distinguished awards, and his stories and works will be on full display at our first 2016 lecture. For Bill Robles, every picture tells a story of emotion and the law in action. Join us on January 28th and judge for yourself.
