Summer Fun at the Cove

Don’t let June Gloom get you down this month!  Even if the skies are still gray overhead, summer is already starting in Crystal Cove State Park’s Historic District.

The Great Plein Air Art Experience has long been a summer favorite of art-loving visitors to the Cove.  Starting on Tuesday, June 14, CCA is offering five public workshops which will introduce participants to Crystal Cove’s long tradition of plein air art.  Registration is required, and classes often sell out far in advance, so sign up early!  More details are available on CCA’s website.

This summer, CCA is also piloting a new plein art program called The Family Plein Air Art Exploration!  These fun family workshops are intended for parents, grandparents, and children ages 8 and up.  During the three-hour program, family teams will explore the basics of plein air painting, and then work together to create a fun still life that captures the summer spirit of the Cove, as each family member creates their own masterpiece.

The Family Plein Air Art Exploration will be held on Tuesday, July 12 and Tuesday, August 9.  Visit CCA’s website to register!

Community Days are also making a return starting on Wednesday, June 29!  From 11 am to 3:30 pm, visitors to the Historic District are invited to stop by the Education Commons for a peak into the past.  Craft jewelry from sea glass, try your hand at historic games, learn about Crystal Cove’s storied past during a short historic tour, and much more!

Check our calendar for more information on upcoming summer events, including Community Days, art classes, historic movie nights, and more!
