Event Details

Salt is a fun, experimental tool to use when watercolor painting. Salt painting, or what is also commonly called salt technique, is very easy to do, and the results can be surprisingly wonderful.

Join the fun and watch the colors blend and mix as you create your ocean-themed salt painting masterpiece as we cannon-ball into summer! Try your hand at a colorful jellyfish, or create a peaceful starfish coastal landscape.Geared towards families, but open to all, 2nd Saturday art lessons provide a space to participate in a free hands-on art activity with materials provided. All lessons are led by our Center Teaching Artist, Nancy Robinson.

One hour classes are held at 10am and 11:15am. Space is limited and seats are available on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Lessons take place in Studio 2. For easy access, park near the Boys & Girls Club in the public parking lot off of Woodward Ave. and N. Escondido Blvd., and enter the studio hallway near the Grape Day Park entrance by the Escondido Historical Train Depot.
