Saturday School @ SRUSD

January 13, 2024 to May 11, 2024

Our Saturday sessions will focus on Exploring traditional art that celebrates, culture, our ancestors, and life during the Dia de los Muertos celebration. Students will also learn the basics of Drawing, printmaking, Painting with Pastels, and acrylics, ending with Storytelling and stop motion. Each session will culminate with a small in-school exhibit or event making their Saturday school experience an opportunity to discover more about Arts, new ways of learning, and themselves.

Artists Alley @ Midtown is an artist-driven farmers market that transforms Midtown Lane in Oldtown Salinas into a local artists’ pop-up shop. Hosting over 20 artists from our community, we are cultivating a space for professional and emerging artists to present and sell their creative works while networking with other artists.


We also provide live music and an open stage where musicians, spoken word, dance, karaoke, etc. take place. In Addition, we provide a variety of youth activities, offering access to our studio space and all our materials for FREE. Artists Alley is a FREE community event taking place every First Friday of the month from 5pm to 9pm. Artists Alley is also FREE to all Artist and Artisan participants
