Young Artist Alcove:
Betsy Aguilar

May 8 - July 5, 2015

Artist Statement:
"I love to draw because I can create the images I see in my mind and express the things I can’t quite explain verbally.  It is a wonderful feeling of satisfaction whenever I complete an artwork.  I see my ideas, dreams and emotions come to life with just and ink pen, colored pencil or paint.  It is that sensation that keeps me wanting to create more."

CCMA in the News
David Allen blog

Inland Valley Daily Bulletin columnist David Allen keeps up with what's going on at CCMA. He recently wrote about the outdoor sculpture now gracing the front lawn of CCMA. The sculpture was created by Fullmer Construction superintendent Gary Rue entirely from materials leftover from construction the parking lot next door.
