Artists at Work
Artists of all ages in all stages! Creating at home, overlooking the ocean, observing in a garden at our local mission, participating in paint outs throughout Orange County.
Playing an instrument or performing onstage, challenge yourself to translate the audio to the visual!
Studio dance classes, ballerinas and folk dancers, tappers, waltzers and tango-ers – let the movement of Orange County jump and jive.
Look around your studio and the chaos of creativity or the order of originality. Sometimes the most interesting subjects are right in front of you!
Viewing Art & Arts Buildings
Patrons of the arts from the young to the young at heart. Don’t forget the arts buildings themselves, even the ones transitioning from abandoned warehouse to upscale art gallery. (Psst – Chemers Gallery counts as an arts building within Orange County, too. Just sayin’!)
Culinary Arts or Art in Situ
What about the art of FOOD?! Talented chefs and sous chefs are artists of their own right, so why not show them a little love, too? Or feature a favorite painting hanging in someone’s home?
