Julia Fister A Winner for the Arts and Education

Studio Ace received a 9000. grant from the Oceanside Charitable Foundation last night. Studio Ace will support the Community Arts Education Project with six Community projects this year. 

The Studio Ace is located next door to the East Oceanside Library. I first met Julia Fister when she was a volunteer at the Oceanside Museum of Art  in 2010. She was a glowing light for the Museum with her engaging personality and love of the Arts.

She then became the Director of Education for the Museum and was the originator of the Art Quest Program at OMA.  I was privileged to work with her for three years teaching the 5th Graders of our Oceanside Unified School District about making art in many different genres. She also presented the children historical insights about how the arts have changed over the years from the classical forms to the present digital arts we know in our everyday lives. 

Julia's new studio will be a guiding light for Children, Adults and schools in the East O'side and for our many diverse communities. Her door is always open. So, come by and welcome Julia to the place where the Arts and Education will grow and thrive...welcome Julia !!!
