Summer Camp Spotlight
In Africa, dance, music, and drums are an integral part of life: everything that happens in a village has a song and dance accompanied by drums. Your child can learn about these traditions in African Drums & Dance, one of more than 30 Summer Arts Camps we are offering at Montalvo!
Montalvo's fabulous Winter Camps were spotlighted in this week's Saratoga News! Click here to read the article, or find a copy in the neighborhood - the photos are fantastic.
We offered Spy Camp and Circus Arts Camp last month during the week of ski break; both camps will be offered again this summer, so register today!
for picnicking and play!
If you've visited Montalvo in 2013, you may have been a little bit surprised to see a big chain link fence around our beautiful Great Lawn, and the lawn itself looking torn up and muddy. Well, we have great news: our brand new renovated lawn is now ready to walk, relax, picnic, and frolic on!
Montalvo's grounds are free to visit and are open every day (with some exceptions for private events); why not take advantage of the great weather and take a drive up? Parking is free, flowers are blooming, and blossoms have appeared on the trees. Bring lunch, walk on the lawn, view our Art on the Grounds and Project Space Gallery exhibitions, and go for a hike on our trails. Dogs are welcome on a leash, and kids will love the fresh air and beautiful scenery!
For more information about visiting, check out montalvoarts.org. We hope to see you soon!
for Bouquets to Art
You are invited to join a special art trip to San Francisco's de Young Museum on Friday, March 22. Bouquets to Art celebrates the work in the gallery with beautiful floral arrangements inspired by the pieces.
Your day will begin at 10:30am at Montalvo with a group of art lovers boarding a shuttle to the museum. You will enjoy a private lunch and a conversation with one of the participating floral designers, followed by a tour of the gallery. It's a great way to experience this annual local art tradition while connecting with fellow friends of Montalvo.
Tickets to this fun day-long excursion are just $125 per person; to reserve your space, contact Annual Fund Manager Emma Moon at firstname.lastname@example.org or 408-961-5841. Call TODAY; space is limited!
