I got involved with the Santa Barbara Jewish Festival when I agreed to be the graphic designer for the event promotional materials. The Jewish Federation has a great community center, if your interested I would check out their community calendar. I had participated in one of their art at the JCC shows over a year ago. They have various art shows throughout the year and also a permanent interactive photography exhibit called, Portraits of Survival.
I’ve been experimenting with festivals this year, and I did some live painting at the Jewish Festival. It was fun to paint while listening to live music and enjoying the outdoor location. It was a perfect day and Oak Park is a beautiful location. I really enjoyed being involved with this community event.
