Art for everyone in Irvine
February 6, 2014 by Mark
In February, Irvine residents have an ideal opportunity to learn more about the local art scene.
Cooking demonstrations, art exhibitions, and tours of the building are just some of the activities planned for the occasion at he City of Irvine Fine Arts center. Opened in 1980, the Center was designed exclusively as a place to foster creativity. Anyone with an interest in the visual arts, regardless of age, talent, or skill level, is welcomed at the Center.
Situated in Irvine’s Heritage Park, the facility houses studios equipped for a range of imaginative activities from painting to printmaking, culinary arts to ceramics, drawing to photography. Offering more than 400 classes a year, the Center remains true to its mission of developing “…community awareness of the value and function of the arts in our culture.”
Support of the highly regarded Center is important to area businesses as well as arts-minded residents. In addition to the draw a vibrant arts venue holds in attracting visitor traffic to a community, there are the practical requirements businesses have for creative talent. For example, when a store needs expert catalog printing to showcase its products, or a restaurant wants attractive flyer printing to advertise its specials, the skills of a visual artist are used.
The City of Irvine Fine Arts center is inviting the public to an open house scheduled from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, February 22. To learn more about the Center’s Open House event visit their website, irvinearts.org, or call 949-724-6880.
