Last updated 5/12/2021 at 10:52pm
FALLBROOK – One of the ways the Fallbrook Art Association supports the local art community is to provide scholarships for promising art students. On Monday, April 24, Makenna Sandoval, a senior at Fallbrook High School, was the recipient of the $1,000 FAA Scholarship Award, plus a membership in the Fallbrook Art Association valued at over $100.
Sandoval said, "I've been drawing ever since I could hold a pencil, and love experimenting with all art mediums. My primary focus is digital painting and I describe my art as semi-realism, leaning toward animated, cartoon-style."
Following in her mother's footsteps, Sandoval has been accepted at Cal State Fullerton with plans to major in Art Education and inspire the next generation of artists just as she was inspired by her own art teachers.
The Gallery, operated by FAA, is located at 127 N. Main Avenue in downtown Fallbrook. Open Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m .; Saturday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Discover affordable, original paintings, prints, ceramics, sculpture, jewelry, and "frameable art" greeting cards. Whether an artist or patron of the arts, consider joining Fallbrook Art Association, a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to fostering the arts in the community.
More information is available at www.fallbrookartassn.org, in The Gallery office, and on the FAA Facebook page.
