On Thursday, October 12, California Art Club artist Christopher L. Cook will host a gallery talk starting at 3:00 p.m. at the Santa Paula Art Museum. Cook will be speaking about "everyday creative awakening," and demonstrating that creativity is not a skill that only artists possess, but rather is a quality that we all have and can use every day. The artist will also offer advice on how one can develop their own creativity, as well as how it can be applied to art-making.
Contemporary artist Christopher L. Cook grew up along the California coast and the Arizona desert. He discovered art early on as a path to self-discovery. During high school, he led a group of humanist guerrilla artists bringing poetry, theater and visual arts to public spaces. While pursuing a degree in psychology, Cook took up oil painting and became an apprentice under artists Stefan Baumann and David Gallup. As a Mentor Program Member of the California Art Club, Cook works diligently to develop his own creativity so that he can continue to communicate his vision of inspiration and love to the world.
Admission to the talk is $4 for adults, $3 for seniors, and free for students and members.
