The Solano Arts and Lectures Series presented by The Vacaville Museum: Center for Solano County History and Culture, is excited to present its first hands-on workshop of the series: “Family Fun-Day: Mural and Tapestry Painting.” The workshop is free and open to all children ages 3-17 accompanied by an adult family member or friend. It takes place on Saturday, June 15, at the museum, 213 Buck Ave. Vacaville  from 10-11:30 a.m. The museum is honored to have well known muralist and arts educator, Leslie Molera, as its first artist-in-residence to lead the Mural and Tapestry Workshops. Children ages 9-17 and their adult counterparts will collaborate on painting an original mural, while kids ages 3-8, will work side-by-side with their grown-up partners to create a wonderful tapestry.   Each project is designed to be age appropriate and will celebrate creativity and imagination. The art created by the participants will draw inspiration from the current museum show, Through the Lens: Our Fruitful Heritage. Participants will view the show before starting their mural or tapestry project. Molera has been an artist from a very early age and developed her artistic skills through high school and college. She began painting large-size displays while working at Raley’s and never looked back. From there Molera painted large-scale work in public spaces as well as private offices and homes. Her clientele grew by word of mouth and her work can now be seen in countless places throughout the Bay area, Solano County and surrounding Foothills. Her style of abstract realism uses vibrant colors and bold energy. Molera also does canvas-work that expresses her use of color and elements of design in her energetic style. Space is very limited for this free workshop. Call the museum for reservations: 707-447-4513. or on the museum website:]]>
