Here is a list of Santa Clarita arts-related events for Nov. 15-18:

Nov. 15: New Heights | Should I Create Art? at The MAIN
Nov. 15 at 7:00 p.m.

The City of Santa Clarita invites you to a free panel discussion for visual artists on how to overcome creative block.

For a creative professional, a creative block isn’t just frustrating; it’s potentially career-damaging. When you rely on your creativity to pay the bills and build your reputation, you can’t afford to be short of ideas or the energy to put them into action.

But all creative blocks are not created equally. Different types of blocks require different solutions — something that’s easily forgotten when you’re feeling stuck. Our New Heights panel will discuss the most common types and provide tips and tricks they employ to unblock them.

To learn more about the panelists, visit the New Heights page on SantaClaritaArts.com.

Nov. 16: ARTree – Figure Drawing at ARTree Community Arts Center
Nov. 16 at 6:00 p.m.

Are you an artist frustrated with the lack of opportunities to draw in Santa Clarita? Come to ARTree Community Arts Center for a chance to really explore your creative potential, using a live model. Just drop in and bring a pencil and paper.

Every 1st, 2nd, and 3rd Thursdays of the month.

Nov 16: Sign Language – Artist Reception at The MAIN
Nov. 16 at 7:00 pm

You are invited to attend a free art reception for the latest exhibit at The MAIN, “Sign Language.” Enjoy light appetizers, entertainment, and a chance to meet the artist.

In this exhibit by artist Alex Cerda, audiences are invited visually explore the relationship between universal signs and sign language. Pieces in the exhibit fuse fine art techniques with contemporary compositions and urban materials such as reclaimed road signs.

“Our hands say a lot about our personalities and that’s why they are the focal point to my storytelling in this series,” says artist Alex Cerda. Alex uses messages seen on common road signs as inspiration to showcase how the same words can be interpreted differently through hand signs and sign language. An artist from Whittier, California, Alex considers himself a visual poet and storyteller and his paintings are a snapshot of a moment within a greater storyline.

Nov. 17: Kill Me, Deadly at Santa Clarita Performing Arts Center at College of the Canyons
Nov. 17 at 8:00 pm

Charlie Nickels has a hard life as a gumshoe in the seedy underbelly of Los Angeles, and things are only made harder by the murder of a client and the theft of her 300-karat diamond. With the help of his wise-cracking secretary, Ida, Charlie seeks out the many suspects: smarmy bookworm Clive, equestrian beauty Veronica, snooty butler Wilson, sensitive muscle Louie, and mob boss Bugsy Siegel. At the center of the case is femme fatale Mona, a nightclub singer who captures Charlie’s affections – and suspicions.

Nov. 17: The Society – A Night of Improv at The MAIN
Nov. 17 at 08:00 pm

Improvised music, comedy, scenes, the works. If you’ve seen “Whose Line Is It Anyway” you have an idea of what kind of hilarious, energetic comedy that team improv can be. If you come to our show, you will laugh. If you don’t, there’s no one who can help you. The Society are 12 time iO West Cage Match Champions.
