Community members will have the opportunity to witness an artist in action as Skye Amber Sweet gives a live painting demonstration on Saturday, May 4, at the Old Town Newhall Library. The event will take place from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at the library, located at 24500 Main Street.
Skye Amber Sweet is a self-taught artist who enjoys working with a variety of artistic mediums including canvas, film and public spaces. Her early life growing up in Honolulu, Hawaii inspires the use of vibrant colors, patterns and natural imagery in her art.
As an artist, Skye Amber Sweet believes art has the ability to heal and empower. Now living in Los Angeles, she takes it upon herself to give back to her community by funding her own community mural once a year, and by participating as a teaching artist with the Arts Bridging the Gap and Street Art Initiative programs in Los Angeles.
She is also able to support other artists by curating a yearly Dia de los Muertos exhibit in San Juan Capistrano and Vista, California, where other artists have a chance to showcase their talents. Giving is a large part of Skye Amber Sweet’s artistic experience, and Santa Clarita residents will be able to see this first-hand at the live painting demo on May 4.
