Alebrijes Painting Workshop:03/19/2017 – Benefit for UUCPA: Alebrijes Painting Workshop
Sunday, March 19, 12:30-4 PM; Room 9
Oaxaca, Mexico, is famous for these little wooden animals, richly painted with patterns in many colors (search online for “alebrijes” for examples, or see Amy’s less-than-expert but enthusiastic efforts in the Main Hall lobby). After a brief introduction to some common patterns and techniques, we will let our imaginations and paintbrushes go wild. One unpainted sculpture per participant, and all supplies, are provided.
Facilitator: Rev. Amy Zucker Morgenstern.
Cost: $40 each to benefit the church (one scholarship available, so talk to Amy privately if cost is an issue).
Strictly limited to six participants – please call the church office in advance to sign up.
Spectacular Murals of the Mission: Street Art:05/29/2017 – Benefit for UUCPA: Spectacular Murals of the Mission: Street Art
Tour in San Francisco
Monday, May 29 (Memorial Day), 11 AM – 2 PM
San Francisco’s Mission District is famous for its murals and other street art, and SF resident and public-art aficionado Amy Zucker Morgenstern will be your docent in this living museum, making use of her major in art (and they said it wasn’t practical!). We’ll put on our most comfortable shoes, meet at a terrific taqueria in the heart of the Mission for lunch, then take an hour-long walking tour, ending up at a delicious bakery for dessert; the meals, like the art and good company, are included in the package. We’ll begin and end near a BART station if you’d prefer public transportation, or there’s easy parking nearby. The tour covers 1.5 miles, and is flat and entirely wheelchair/scooter accessible.
Cost: $30 each to benefit the church (one scholarship available, so talk to Amy privately if cost is an issue).
To be one of the nine participants, call the church office to sign up.
