SAN JACINTO – The MSJC Art Gallery, California Family Life Center and Worth Visual Arts present Artery’s 2018 “Bee-as-1” exhibit. The exhibition runs Monday to Thursday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., through Sept. 20, and marks the 12th collaboration with CFLC and MSJC.

“Bee-as-1” draws an analogy to local bee communities, the community’s own individual skills and understanding and how people can contribute to further benefit society, human conditions and communities through community service, according to a press release on the art gallery’s website. Studying the individual honeybee’s contributions to the whole of their community draws important lessons and insight to the importance of mentoring and community service. They are always working as one to further better the lives of all, the release said.

The artists used printmaking, sculpture and recycled materials to take visitors on a bumble bee’s flight through different types of art that buzz with color inventive structure. This years’ exhibit emphasizes mentoring skills, focusing on the transference of creative energy, vision and goals through art with children. The mentors work with school-age children, teaching various art methods and building a one-to-one relationship with their college-age mentors. Student and mentor introspective journals will be displayed at the MSJC San Jacinto Campus at 1499 N.State St., Building 1400, in San Jacinto.

The show has been made possible through the cooperative efforts of the MSJC Fine Arts Gallery, Worth Visual Arts Programs, Michele Worth, California Family Life Centers; Planet Youth, Empower Youth, Rubidoux Youth Opportunity Consortium. Participating collaborators are Rustic Lane Elementary, CFLC Kin Care, Boys & Girls Club of Southwest County and Think Together. CFLC art mentors conducted sculpture and printmaking classes with community children in fourth through sixth grades and teens. Mentors received training daily, focusing on mentor guidelines and skills, journaling, sculpture and art methods for workshop implementation.
