The Serra Center Art Workshop Collaborative, which is a collaborative effort between the City of Fremont, Olive Hyde Art Guild, and Serra Center, has received the California Park and Recreation Society (CPRS) Agency Showcase Award for Outstanding Recreation Program. The award represents programs that embody and embrace the value and mission of the parks and recreation profession and agencies toward a stronger position or role within the community.
The Serra Center Art Workshop offers a safe environment for students to create their own artwork fostered by an open, fluid, and individualized curriculum through drawing, painting, and sculpting. Artwork created at the workshop is shared with the community at an artist reception where the artwork may be purchased with all proceeds going directly to the artists. This years’ workshop will run for 18 weeks from March 28 through July 18 with an artist reception scheduled for September 13, 2018.
