# # # Media Contact: Cynthia Thomet, firstname.lastname@example.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.
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.” Continue reading “YFAC: Fun with Ephemera!”

in august, 2007, a residency and workshop hosted by silpakorn university, in bangkok, thailand, included three san josé state faculty artists who were invited to participate as part of a larger exchange with several california universities. the artists were directed to address the theme of world environment, and the conclusion of the bangkok portion of the exchange was a major exhibition showing the results of this effort. the exhibition here at works/san josé presents new work from the california portion of this ongoing exchange. learn more at a free Artists’ Talk 7pm, thursday, december 13
