Guest Speaker Series – Melissa Shepherd


Melissa Shepherd

Creating Joy From Within

While her work includes being on the faculty at Pacific Oaks College and providing psychotherapy services and workshops at CalArts, Melissa Shepherd’s objective is to help people live more joyful lives. Artists (and non-artists) can learn to balance creativity with economics, obligations with family, and integrity with success.

Hear Melissa Shepherd and learn how she helps individuals and organizations turn the challenge of productivity into a joyful experience.

Thursday, June 24, 2015 – 6:30pm – Old Town Newhall Library

Brought to you in partnership with CalArts Community Arts Partnership (CAP), and the City of Santa Clarita’s Thursdays@Newhall.

Guest Speaker Series – Javier Barboza



In April, Jorge Gutierrez brought stories and laughter on bringing his animated stories to mainstream Hollywood.

In May, Javier Barboza will show us a more serious, avant-garde approach to telling stories of social commentary through animation.

A serious side of animation.

Los Angeles animator, filmmaker and artist Javier Barboza talks about his surreal narrative style of creativity that tackles the complexities of urban life. Expect a provocative exploration of the animated art form.

Thursday, May 28, 2015 – 6:30 pm, at the Old Town Newhall Library

Thanks to our partners CalArts Community Arts Partnership (CAP) and the City of Santa Clarita.
