The Kellogg Local Artists-in-Residence at Cal Poly Pomona is again offering the public an opportunity to learn art journaling and needlepoint, and enjoy a thread of university history.
Art Professor Babette Mayor and Cal Poly Pomona graphic designer Ani Markarian will teach participants to make an art journal combining modern graphic design and traditional art materials. In a separate class, local needlepoint instructor Shelley Mullin will show students basic stitching techniques, culminating in a finished sampler.
Both classes will be held at Kellogg House Pomona, the historic residence of cereal magnate and Kellogg Ranch founder W.K. Kellogg. There is limited space, but participants from every skill level are welcome.
The late Jean Kellogg gave an antique needlepoint-upholstered chair to Kellogg House Pomona, which inspired the series. The chair originally belonged to W.K. Kellogg.
The non-credit classes will meet on eight Mondays from 5 to 8 p.m. between Jan. 12 and March 9. The classes will not meet on Martin Luther King Jr. Day on Jan. 19.
Registration for each class is $50 and includes materials. For more information or to register, visit http://cppartclasses.eventbrite.com.
Funding is supported by the Kellogg Legacy grant provided by the W.K. Kellogg Foundation.
