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.

Animation With An Attitude



Javier Barboza

Animator & Visual Artist

Art From An Urban Perspective

Artists often bring multiple elements to their work. Javier Barboza applies elements of graffiti, sign language, hand-drawings and iconic images to his mixed-media process of 3-D animation and visual art.

Having taught at LACMA and CalArts with passion and emotion, Barboza will discuss being a working artist in both suburban and urban environments, as well as screen a selection of his unconventional shorts. The films are sometimes dark and graphic, and may not be appropriate for children. (Bring an old T-shirt – or two – for our June ArtSlam project. Any size will do!)

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