Coming Saturday, February, 14, 2009, from 12 – 2 pm, Works/San Jose will host another Youth & Family Art Connection, called “Fun with Ephemera”.
“Ephemera is a beautiful word for those things that you manage to collect–like old tickets to your favorite show–and they make great media for art projects. Valentine’s day seemed to be a good day to explore how to incorporate ephemera into your art,” says local art teacher and Works Board member, Brande Barrett. “This fun family activity is free, where you can make and take your own fine art home with you.”
Works/San José is bringing back YFAC—youth and family art connection—in 2009, to give youth and their families another reason to enjoy the arts on the second Saturday of each month. Workshop admission will be free, but donations to the program are gratefully accepted.
Thanks to Barrett, Works/San José is able to re-introduce one of the weekend programs preferred among San Jose’s younger artists and art appreciators.
Works/San José is the San José community’s art and performance center—a non-profit creative laboratory dedicated to providing an environment where artists, audience, and ideas interact to expand the scope of cultural and artistic experience. Gallery hours are: Thursdays 3 – 7 pm, Fridays and Saturdays noon – 4 pm. For more information or to find out how to volunteer, please visit: http://www.workssanjose.org.

About YFAC (youth and family art connection):
yfac fosters appreciation for and understanding of art by giving local children (ages 7 to 14) and their families new and different ways to express themselves through art in a “no-mistakes” environment that supports the application of creative problem-solving and risk-taking beyond the visual arts. Free creative opportunities are provided at Works/ San Jose on the second Saturday of the month.
