Workshop Details
The digital age is taking over the art scene. There are countless brushes and painting apps to help one create beautiful illustrations with ease. However, the discipline of studying the world around you and capturing it on a canvas should never be forgotten. This workshop will focus interpreting color and light through plein air painting, and applying those studies to illustrations, color keys and other aspects of visual development. Starting with the foundation of understanding composition, color harmonies, and different lighting scenarios, students will ultimately be able to create beautiful paintings that tell engaging stories.

Ai California – Inland Empire Grad Shows Support for San Bernardino Ai California – Inland Empire Grad Shows Support for San Bernardino

Juan Garcia, a graduate of The Art Institute of California – Inland Empire, a campus of Argosy University (Bachelor of Science, Graphic Design, 2012), is a lifelong Inland Empire resident who bought a house in San Bernardino last year. So after the mass shooting in San Bernardino, Calif., on Dec. 2 that left 14 people dead, he was devastated.

Taking inspiration from San Bernardino’s iconic Arrowhead landmark, Garcia put the message “SB Strong 12.02.15” inside an arrowhead and shared it to the I Love San Bernardino Facebook group. He intended the logo to be a way for residents to do something, even if it was simply a gesture.

Well the logo (and it’s symbolism) turned out to be a big hit, being shared hundreds of times on social media within only a few hours. Garcia’s SB Strong logo was prominently featured at the vigil at San Manuel Stadium. At the same time, the #SBStrong hashtag was growing in popularity on Twitter and Facebook. The San Bernardino Sun even interviewed Garcia and did a piece on him and the logo titled “#SBStrong logo, hashtag rises from ashes of San Bernardino mass shooting.” Here is a link to the article: http://www.sbsun.com/general-news/20151205/sbstrong-logo-hashtag-rises-from-ashes-of-san-bernardino-mass-shooting 

Although he wasn’t present at the site of the attacks, he’s familiar with the Inland Regional Center, having graduated from The Art Institute of California - Inland Empire, immediately adjacent to it. SB Strong shirts will be sold online and at the San Manuel Stadium for $20 to help benefit the victims, with 100 percent of the proceeds going to the San Bernardino United Relief Fund.
