Fullerton Museum Center’s “Creative Co-Op” Series Returns for Spring
The Fullerton Museum Center will continue their Creative Co-Op series beginning in March. Creative Co-Ops are workshops featuring local artisans presenting a variety of crafts and artistic ventures. Workshops are held from 6-8 p.m. at the Fullerton Museum Center, 301 N. Pomona Ave and suitable for individuals over 21 years of age. Admission is $15 for Museum members and $20 for non-members, and includes materials.
“The Art of the Tarot” will kick off the spring season on Friday, March 11. Psychic and medium Victoria Gross will lead this interactive workshop on the history and art of the tarot deck, an ancient divination tool that has had a resurgence of popularity. After learning about personal and universal symbolism, workshop participants will make their own “spirit card” with gel monoprint transfers, collage, and stencils.
On Friday, March 25, geology and creativity will converge with crystal energy expert Leah Luna at the workshop, “Crystal Energy Mandala.” The power of gems and minerals for healing has been harnessed by practitioners of non-traditional medicine for thousands of years. Attendees will learn the different properties of specific stones and then combine crystal chips with acrylic paints to create a mixed media Mandala to take home.
Just in time for Mother’s Day, Fullerton Museum Educator Aimee Aul will lead a beading workshop to create birthstone jewelry on Friday, April 29. Attendees can create a customized pair of earrings and bracelet featuring birthstone crystals.
The Friday, May 13 Creative Co-Op will be presented by creative designer and small business owner, Virginia Sandfer, who will focus on crafting scented soaps and cleaners with natural products and essential oils. Attendees will learn how to utilize the cleaning properties of everyday household items, and leave with a gift basket of natural, customized products.
