Announcing a free online presentation: : “Melanie Cervantes on becoming an artist” (Rated PG-13) , Sunday, April  5, 2020 11:30am-1:30pm PST. If you would like to participate please email melaniecervantes@berkeley.edu to sign up for the Zoom meeting. I will email you all of the details. Participation is limited to 300 people.

I will be telling the story of how I ended up becoming an artist, who shaped my art and how my practice has evolved over time. We will have a significant amount of time allocated for questions and answers and some discussion.
I am so happy to announce my first online offering in a series of talks and workshops I am calling “Creative Connection in the time of “social distance”” and will have a particular focus in two tracks.

Track one will present slideshow based lectures on a variety of topics including art history, sharing stories about the trajectory of our work, how we sustain ourselves as artists and many other topics.

Track two will focus on hands on art making/skill sharing that people can participate in by using materials they likely have at home already.
Since many of you have asked if the content of these online offerings is appropriate for kids I have decided to use the motion picture rating system to guide potential participants/adults in deciding if their kids should participate. (G, PG PG-13,R)

I will be offering the same presentation twice a week. One will happen on a weekday in the evening and the other will happen on a weekend in the the late morning/early afternoon (Pacific Standard Time).
