Annual MVAL Masters in the Park
Southern California artists and patrons are invited to our Annual Masters in the Park event. Held in Spring each year since 2005 (except for 2020 & 2021), for one day at Maranatha High School in Pasadena, art enthusiasts have the opportunity to walk between a number of artists and observe how they work in different mediums. Attendees are welcome to bring sketchbooks and materials and paint alongside our Master Artists. Around 2:30pm, join the Master Artists to hear about their process and share the art they created during the event. Registration this year is free.
