January is starting out with a wonderful abstract exhibit, featuring one of a kind art by Mario Scharmer. Mario paints on a regular basis and exhibits at many venues in the bay area. Most of his work is on recycled material, canvas as well as board. With use of Gatorade bottles, brushes, and palette knives, Mario has produced many colorful, personal abstracts. He is healing himself and sharing his art with many communities. Mario has overcome many hardships from a serious car accident which left him with brain injuries. He has always wanted to paint and now has found a way to help heal himself.
HEALING WITH HEART is the name of the Exhibit featuring Mario Scharmer

Einstein (the elf) has had a busy season since Halloween. He and Keiko (see Santa below) have had costumes fashioned for them by the Wacky Wednesday students. Design and costume making was planned and executed by 2 very talented young girls. New classes will be planned in our emergent curriculum program for 2016. These classes are thought up by the students and then, with mentoring, the final project comes to completion. If you are interested in making art please check out our Class Page and contact aRt Cottage. If you would like to exhibit your work or know artists who would like to hang in the gallery, please contact aRt Cottage at 925 956-3342
