    "Memoir: Writing Your Life Story" with Rose Y. Monge (All Levels)

    Writers are encouraged to respond to prompts about universal themes related to the human condition: key relationships, physical places, historic events, personal hardships/recovery, love and loss, and personal achievement and development. It is these ties that bind us all in different stages of our lives. Each of us brings a unique perspective to every story. Maybe it's time to write yours.

    "Writing for Children" with José Chavez (Beg.-Int.)

    This workshop is designed to meet the needs of those who wish to write or are writing for children.

There will be time to flex our writing muscles and develop the beauty and strength of our “voice” for children.

    Artists Reception at Chaffey College

    Tuesday, September 27, 2022

    Featuring Adam Martinez, author of Remyth

    Winner of 2019 Hillary Gravendyk Prize for Poetry

    4:00-7:00 PM

    Free and open to the public.

    Join Inlandia Institute on Tuesday, September 27, for an artist’s reception at Wignall Museum at Chaffey College (Rancho Cucamonga campus) to celebrate the opening of their fall exhibition. Adam Martinez, author of Hillary Gravendyk Prize winner, Remyth, will be on hand to share his work as part of the program.

    Hillary Gravendyk Poetry Prize-winner Remyth: A Postmodernist Ritual, is the first book by local author Adam D. Martinez.

    Remyth is a baptism and an exorcism. It's Hip-Hop and Punk. It’s high art meeting low art at the church altar. It’s a Works Cited page meeting with a ruthless remix culture unwilling to claim ownership and more than willing to take what it needs to make meaning.

    This workshop will be team-taught by art historian Richard May III and curator Lisa Henry.

    Coinciding with the Riverside Art Museum’s exhibition of Abstract painter June Edmonds, this four-part workshop will survey the hidden history of American Abstract art. Focusing on the vibrant work of LA based artist June Edmonds, the workshop will give participants a background on American abstract painters with a special focus on women and artists of color like Edmonds who have pursued a path of abstraction with an emphasis on color, pattern and texture to create works of stunning power.

    Each week, both instructors will present brief lectures on specific topics related to abstract art, followed by engaged discussion regarding art appreciation, interpretation and personal identity. Each class will use the works of June Edmonds as a prism for a wider consideration of contemporary abstract painting. A reading list will also be posted for participants that want to delve further into the field.
