Arts and Community


Sharing the Experience of Art

We hold a number events throughout the Orange County area and in the communities beyond to provide fun, creative activities for the marginalized children and adults of all ages and backgrounds who might not otherwise have the opportunity to take part in unique kind of creative experiences we provide.

We use art to promote community through the social interaction that comes from the shared creative experience. We encourage the involvement of both young and old and all in-between.

We also would like to encourage the participation of other Artists and Musicians who would like to share their skills and themselves.

Please feel free to join us for our events.

Guidelines for the ZOOM Class

These classes are meant to help you learn and understand the basic concepts of drawing. I repeat them as you will not always understand or learn things on the first go around. As with anything else it gets easier the more you do it. First and foremost they ar also supposed to be fun.

These classes are short so I try and start them right on time.

If there is a lot of background noise in your home please mute your sound

Double click on my picture to fill the screen with my image which is important so you can see what I am doing.
Double click on my picture again when it is full screen to zoom in

Please don't be afraid to ask me questions.

Don't forget to un mute your sound to ask a question.

Let me know if I go to fast

Please stop me if you don't understand something

I am here to help you and one of the keys to learning is interaction

Picerne Foundation
Picerne Family Foundation Classes
is offering free live online one-on-one art, music and writing instruction, in a new project, Shelter-in-Place: Face-to-Face.

Several years back I was the recipient of a Picerne Foundation Grant. They contacted me about being a part of this program so I thought I would share

It is the Foundation’s effort to help combat COVID-19 isolation.  Dr. Ken Golden, Senior Advisor to the Foundation, adds, “The lessons are a fun and personal way to learn a new skill or brush up on an old one”.  Lessons can be scheduled on the Foundation’s Contact page: https://picernefoundation.org/contact-us/.  The Foundation will also provide assistance to the learner in setting up on an interactive format such as Skype, Zoom or FaceTime. The instructors are all local professional artists who are donating their time for this new project.  There is no fee for the 15 – 30 minute “in-person” lessons. The artists are offering instruction in painting, drawing, collage, stitching, art with stories, origami, keyboard/piano, guitar, singing and writing short stories and folk tales.  Ages for the various lessons varies, but ranges from 6 – 60+.  Some lessons are offered in Spanish as well.  The Foundation is also seeking artists to volunteer for this project in the future. The Picerne Family Foundation, is a private charitable foundation (501c3) formed by The Picerne Group in Newport Beach, California.  The Foundation seeks to develop and initiate unique and innovative programs that create impact and lasting value for the individual and the community.  For more information, go to:  www.picernefoundation.org.
