Talent Blossoms in Orange Workshop: Visual Arts Now Included!

October 24, 2015 @ 8:15 am - 3:00 pm

The Community Foundation of Orange’s Talent Blossoms in Orange Workshop has a new way to

bloom! A visual arts segment has been added and will be overseen by Orange resident and artist,

Judy Schroeder who stated, “The quality of the CFO board is stellar and my grandchildren have

benefitted from what the foundation has to offer, so becoming involved was an easy choice. When I

started teaching in 1963, I had to fight for my art program in my classroom but that’s nothing like

what they have to do now for teaching art. This is a wonderful way to introduce art to youngsters. I

think that all little kids are artists at heart; they love to draw and paint. I want to encourage that

desire before the self-critical thinking begins. I cannot wait to hear a child say that they had a ‘great

time’, or ‘I’m going to do more drawing’, or ‘wow, I didn’t know I could do such a good job’ because of

his/her time spent with art at Talent Blossoms in Orange!”

Talent Blossoms in Orange is a free workshop, open to 3rd – 6th grade students who attend school

and/or live within the Orange Unified School District boundaries. It will be held on Saturday, October

24th at Santiago Canyon College’s D Building. Check-in begins at 8:15 am and the day culminates

with a 2:30 pm performance for family and friends capturing this year’s theme, “My Country ‘tis of

Thee”. Areas of study for the day include: visual arts, choir, dance, theater arts, and instruction on

flutophone, hand chimes, violin, clarinet, percussion and trumpet.

This is the 5th annual workshop hosted by CFO and the second consecutive year that a program has

been added, with the theater arts portion added last year. Susie Cunningham, CFO Executive

Director explained the importance of the event, “We have many board members who have a passion

for the arts and want to share that with the youth of our community. Art and music are very

important to the development of a child’s brain; in fact statistics show that both positively impact

overall academic achievement. Through CFO we want to draw out what creates passion in every

child in our community, whether it is through playing soccer, running track, playing an instrument, or

creating art. We are thrilled to add the visual arts component to Talent Blossoms in Orange this

year, especially under the tutelage of Judy Schroeder. Those children will have a great experience!”

Online registration is now available on the CFO website: www.communityfoundationoforange.org

Space is limited for some sections; registering early is suggested to ensure that students will get

their first choice of areas of study. The workshop is free and includes a t-shirt, lunch, snacks and

bottled water; a $5.00 deposit is required to confirm attendance and will be refunded at check-in.
