Carp Cares for Youth Hosting Free Teen Arts Festival on Tuesday

A free Teen Arts Festival will be held from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday, June 18, at the Carpinteria Valley Arts Center, 855 Linden Ave., sponsored by Carp Cares for Youth in collaboration with the Carpinteria Valley Arts Council.

John Wullbrandt, the well-known artist who just did the mural on Wullbrandt Way, will be doing a mural on the wall of the Art Center with student artists, and there are great classes with great teachers all day with a lunch break at noon. The event is free of charge!

Lunch will be offered for all teens who pre-register for this event. Click here to register. Teens can sign up for one to three sessions, from 10 a.m. to noon, 1 to 3 p.m. and 3 to 5 p.m. taking advantage of a short introduction to mural painting, photography, collage, watercolor painting, jewelry making, anime drawing or fimo clay sculpturing.

Teen ArtFest is funded through the City of Carpinteria. This year, Carp Cares For Youth is working in collaboration with the Carpinteria Valley Arts Council, which will host all the classes and the student art show.

Carp Cares for Youth will also feature the student art produced that day at a reception from 5 to 7:30 p.m. Friday, June 21, at CVAC, with Jamey Geston performing, DJ Hecktik spinning tunes, food, fun, open mic/poetry and more. Parents and community members are welcome to attend the Student Art Exhibit/Music.

This special event is free to all Carpinteria teens and young adults from 12-20. Click here to register. Parental consent forms for those 18 and under may be brought to the workshops. Space is limited so sign up now to break June gloom and summer blues and find your creative space.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
