Enjoyed the casual conservation with the moderator and the artists. It was easy to follow and learned a lot of about the artists and their work. Good choice in artists.

Excellent teacher. She is very positive and encouraging. Her ideas for activities are very good: fun, east but also getting us students to use paint and other media in ways we've never tried before.

About Richmond Art Center

Richmond Art Center is the largest visual arts center in the East Bay of the San Francisco Bay Area, delivering exciting arts experiences to people of all ages who reflect the diverse richness of our community. We do this through onsite Studio classes and Exhibitions, and offsite Art in the Community programs.The Richmond Art Center originated in 1936, when local artist Hazel Salmi, who worked for the WPA, traversed the streets of Richmond with a suitcase packed with art supplies, eager to teach art to anyone interested. Today, everything we do at the Center continues to breathe life into Salmi’s original vision: That within every person lives an artist.
