2012 Teen Art Scholarship

The 2012 Arte Motu Teen Art Scholarship has been assigned this summer to Lorena Calvillo, a Pescadero High School student with her color pencil drawing "A Day in The City".

In describing her art piece, Lorena states that "as a small town family it is always fun to take a trip to the city. It is an amazing feeling to be able to go from farm lands and few people to city lights and a great amount of people around you. My drawing was a composite of 3 photos that was made into one, to create an imaginary scene of me and my family at union square in San Francisco."

Lorena admires the work of great classical artists, such as Leonardo Da Vinci. She says "I admire Leonardo da Vinci because all his work is done to perfection. He took his time and in his work it is more then just a picture. There's math behind it, and as a math lover I think that is very awesome. All his art has a mystery behind it, which makes it so much more interesting. "

As an artist, she aspires "to make my art more thoughtful and to challenge myself in all my work. Im trying to think out of the box and make each and one of my art pieces just a little different. Blending the colored pencils is one of this things I've most attempted and would like to do better."

Congratulations to Lorena! Arte Motu hopes that she will continue and enjoy her art making artist in her future.

The Pescadero Grown Farmers Market has been open for almost two months now, and the produce is fresher than anywhere else. You will find different local farmers who pick their produce few miles away from your house, and just before coming to sell it at the market! That makes it a very special and delicious produce we have here in Pescadero and La Honda.

This year, the Pescadero market is held within the beautiful grounds of the Pescadero Country Store. While you shop there will be music playing, and a beautiful enclosed and grassy setting where your kids can play safely and freely.

We hope to see meet you at Pescadero Grown this week!

Prayer Stones Placement Ceremony


Since November, the non-profit Arte Motu from Pescadero has worked on an outreach program involving kids age 4-12 for the making of public art. Arte Motu Junior artists have created what they called Prayer Stones. The prayer stones placement will happens today starting at 11:30am from the Reynolds' house at 1779 Pescadero Creek Rd. We'll have refreshments provided by the Arte Motu Junior artists. Then, we'll walk up to a hill that overlooks the town of Pescadero to place the stones.

Frannie, one of the Arte Motu Junior artists, says: " The Prayer Stones will be protecting the town from evil forces, balancing the good and evil of the world. The idea comes from a a comic novel I like called Bone."

The stones were made our of wire and cement, and then painted with vibrant colors and symbols. The artists involved in the project are 7 kids residing in the coast side: Shay, Morgan, Emerald, Zephyr, Orion, Kumalo, and Frannie. The junior artists have already other art projects in mind to be done this summer. The Prayer Stones will be placed so to be visible to the public from Bean Hollow Road.

ATTENTION:
The ground up the hill might still be wet from yesterday rain, so wear rain or hiking boots. Also, for whom is coming from up or down the coast, the Pescadero Creek Rd might be flooded at entrance from Hwy 1. So here are somealternative routes:
-If you are coming from Davenport (Kate, Art, and Kumalo) you can take Gazos Creek road as a detour, follow to Cloverdale Rd and then make a left on to Pescadero Creek Rd. Destnation will be on the right after crossing Stage Rd.
-If you are coming from the north, turn left on 84 and then in San Gregorio turn right on Stage Rd until Pescadero, then turn right on Pescadero Creek Rd. Destination will be on the right.
