About the Artist:
Courtney Mattison’s passion for discovering what lives in the ocean and her fascination with the diverse, colorful, and the sometimes venomous world has led her to the coral reefs. As an artist and activist Mattison is using the power of art to evoke an emotional response to advocate for the oceans. Mattison creates dazzling and incredibly detailed ceramic coral reef installations that start of with vibrant colors and spirals out to solid white. The haunting beauty of the white corals is a reference to the bleaching of the coral reefs, the white ceramic being a representation of the skeletal remnants left behind by warming oceans.
Special guest panel, Virtual Reality, live music, art activities, and other highlights will make part of this all-ages community event. Join us in celebrating Encinitas’ surf, skate and art culture!

This class is an exciting opportunity for young artists to engage deeply with Lux’s residency program. Class size is small to ensure rich understanding of the material. Inspired by the work of our Artist-in-Residence, our Kids-in-Residence are guided in creating a range of art projects in dialogue with the body of work on exhibition. Painting, drawing, and sculpture will be practiced.
