ARTi Party Time!

ARTi Party: Holiday Happening! Relief Printmaking Workshops

ARTS Obispo is offering a new ARTi Party experience for those interested in a hands-on art-inspired soiree.

We invite you to take part as the nationally acclaimed Robert “Rosey” Rosenthal presents his successful and very popular relief printmaking workshops.

We use the term workshop loosely! The gathering will be lively, engaging, and geared especially (but not exclusively) for NON artists.

Guests will be provided with all the materials and support needed to walk away with unique prints suitable for framing (gift idea?) or for holiday cards.

The workshops will include fabulous food and drink, lots of laughs and enthusiasm. Co-sponsor, Etty Pacifico is our gracious host at her art supply store and gallery, Art Central.

Sign up early for this excellent opportunity to create something special during the holiday season. Limited to 12 participants for each time slot. $30 each for ARTS Obispo members (25% discount!), $40 for non-members.

The proceeds of ARTi Party – Holiday Happening! workshops benefit ARTS Obispo’s many programs advancing the arts in SLO County. For more information including how to become a member, click here or call the ARTS Obispo office: (805) 544-9251.

Offered at two times on Wednesday, December 7th:

1-3:30 pm & 6–8:30 pm

Location: Art Central – Art Supply and Gallery, 1329 Monterey St. SLO

Cost: ARTS Obispo members: $30 (25% discount!) Non-members: $40

I don’t get it, but….

California, in its infinite wisdom, has decided to regulate (i.e. outlaw) the sale of gallons of thinners & solvents… so I can’t buy any more.  Doesn’t make any sense to me, but it is what it is!  When my gallons are gone, they’re gone!  The largest size I’ll be able to sell will be 32 oz – so sorry, folks!  The links & other info below…


Volatile organic compound limits and other labeling and regulatory provisions became effective for paint thinners and multi-purpose solvents sold in the State of California as off January 1st of this year.  The following websites may provide you with some of the answers that you are looking for. 

 The first is for an Enforcement Advisory concerning all of the new limits and provisions that became effective this year.

 The second is the actual Consumer Products Regulation which contains all of the definitions, limits, prohibitions, labeling, and other regulatory provisions.
