Call to Artists: CAW Mobile Arts Clinic available to all
View this email in your browser

A little patch of studio in the middle of the Solstice Festival can be yours

The Community Arts Workshop has a booth at the Solstice Festival in Alameda Park in three weeks, and we don’t want it all to ourselves. Instead, we’re setting up the CAW Mobile Arts Clinic: an arts workshop (tent) on location at the Solstice Festival which artists can reserve for an hour or two and do their work in front of several thousand passers-by at the Solstice Festival.

You want to be one of those artists, don’t you?

You can (for example):

  • Paint portraits of festival-goers
  • Teach a class
  • Improvise a dance concert
  • Read a play
  • Display and promote and sell your work

Times available:

  • 1-2 hour slots between 4 and 9pm, Friday June 24th; and between noon and 8pm Saturday June 25th. (That’s three weekends from now.)

Location: Alameda Park, Santa Barbara, Solstice Festival

The rules are:

  • E-mail us at hello@sbcaw.org with a paragraph about you and your art and a couple of images or representations of the kind of work you want to do in the Arts Clinic.
  • Tell us what times you would be interested in.
  • At the festival, you must be doing work live, you cannot for example just hang art for sale (though you can hang and sell art in addition to your live work).
  • We especially want to see work that allows for participation from festival-goers. An arts activity they can do themselves, for example, or a performance you make based on audience suggestions.

Interested? Send us an e-mail! Know someone else who might be interested?Forward this to them with the social buttons below.

Santa Barbara Arts Collaborative
1st Thursday Art Crawl
Brought to you by the Santa Barbara Arts Collaborative, and Downtown Santa Barbara

Thursday, June 2nd @ 5:30

Meet on the stairs of City Hall overlooking de la Guerra Plaza 

Hi Everyone,

I hope that you all had a wonderful long weekend.

It’s time for the next 1st Thursday Art Crawl, and it is supposed to warm up and feel all summery by Thursday. Perfect for a nice evening walk downtown.

Mitra Cline will once again be your pied piper for the evening, and there will be Art in the Mayor’s office for one of the last times before our Mayor ends her term. You never know if the new mayor will continue the program, so if you want to see what the inside of our mayor’s office looks like, now is your chance.

I’ll be up at Sullivan Goss hoping to see you, if you make it up there.

Have fun!

THIS 1ST THURSDAY: We’re inviting everyone to a gallery show and open house co-hosted by the Santa Barbara Sculptors Guild at the CAW!

–April 7th, 631 Garden St, from 5-8pm–

At “CAW in Action: The Sculptors Guild” the Santa Barbara Arts Collaborative and the Santa Barbara Sculptors Guild are co-hosting a gallery show and open house, inviting everyone to see the new Community Arts Workshop and some great art, and any artist with an idea to come see how they can use the space.

This 1st Thursday, April 7th, come experience a new workspace for artists in Santa Barbara with boundless potential.

1918665_1122799427751143_1265671969366334996_nAt 631 Garden St, a vision that has been in the work for decades is being realized. For the last few months the Community Arts Workshop has been in the midst of renovation giving space to some of Santa Barbara’s most creative institutions – The Solstice Celebration, Pianos on State, Revels, Youth Interactive, and more. This April 7th, as part of the downtown 1st Thursday festivities, it will be filled with art and opened to the public.

The Santa Barbara Sculptors Guild will show a wide variety of curated sculptures and wall art from artists all over Santa Barbara. Appetizers and drinks will be served. Visitors can tour the buildings, see the great work of the Sculptors Guild, have a look at iron-work artist David Shelton’s 9-headed hydra (soon to be part of the CAW’s public art gates, featured in a recent Independent article), and share their vision with board members about ways the space can be used. Board president Rod Hare will give a presentation at 6:15pm about the CAW and its future.

Please come enjoy the work of the Santa Barbara Sculptors Guild and imagine what you can do at Santa Barbara’s new Community Arts Workshop.

When: April 7th, 5- 8 p.m., with presentation at 6:15 p.m.

Where: The Community Arts Workshop, 631 Garden Street, Santa Barbara.
