The Art Process Presents:

Art for the Soul Retreat

May 4-6 at the Community Arts Workshop

This 3 day replenishing “Art for the Soul” retreat is an immersive experience in The Art Process with Creative Coach Kathy Leader. We will be exploring our inner creative voice through process-oriented writing, mixed-media art, community discussions, local activities and more. This is a great opportunity for self discovery amongst a supportive creative community.

The retreat is geared towards anyone who is curious about the creative path, whether you are just exploring your creativity for the first time or are a practicing artist who wants to deepen your practice. Our work focuses on abstract layered mixed-media and collage art. Optional activities include meditation, nature walks, sound bath, gallery-hopping and food!

The Summer Solstice Celebration Presents:

The 2022 Summer Solstice Parade and Workshop

The Solstice Workshop will open to the public on May 11 at the Community Arts Workshop

Solstice is back!

 This year, the 48th annual Solstice Parade will begin at Noon on June 25th at the intersection of Ortega and Santa Barbara Streets. The parade will travel on Santa Barbara Street and end at the Solstice Festival at Alameda park. (Sola Street). 

 We expect to be back at our usual route next year when outdoor dining along State Street becomes portable to accommodate parades. We are excited about the creativity that the community will bring to this new route. Parade spectators can also see the mountains, the Santa Barbara Courthouse and the Presidio along the route. 

 The Solstice Workshop will open to the public on May 11 at the Community Arts Workshop (CAW). The Solstice Festival will take place in Alameda Park, June 24th & 25th.
