Art Show Held for Colusa youth artists


Showcasing the hard work and creative efforts of the county’s youth, the Colusa County Arts Council held a special Art Show Saturday.

Dozens of creative works of art were on display; the artists were those who participated in the Summer Art Camp sponsored by the Colusa County Arts Council.

Art Camp Instructor Trish Gustafson-Ayala commented that the art students learned to create various pieces of art using different media and techniques.

“We started out with colors. They learned that with the three primary colors they can create many colors – with black and white they can create all colors,” said Gustafson-Ayala.

The students also explored different techniques with perspective and horizon.

“I had them draw line on a page to create a road or river, then a horizon, and some mountains. From there, they could then use their own creativity to complete the project,” said Gustafson-Ayala. “It’s so wonderful to see how each child was creative and how differently the pieces turned out.”

“We gave a little art history with Van Gogh and then let them do their own version of ‘Starry Night,’” said Gustafson-Ayala.

“My kids had so much fun,” said Colusa Art Camp parent Christy Avera. “It is all they could talk about. It was a great class.”

Gustafson-Ayala commented that an Art Gallery is in the works for the participants in the Arbuckle and Grimes Art Camps.

Sponsors for the 2016 Summer Art Camp included Colusa Industrial properties, Clarke Ornbaun, Mark Morris of Pearson Realty, Sankey Auto, Rocco’s Bar & Grill, Caffeinated, Paul Santinelli, Staci & Jack Dewit, Craig Hill, the Colusa County Arts Council, the City of Williams, and Trish Gustafson- Ayala.
