SCE art student Laura M Black’s pastel piece "the Lie” was selected to be featured in the 27th Annual Made in California juried art exhibition at the Brea Gallery. The exhibit, which is on display now through May 4, 2012, highlights artwork of all genres made by artists who live and work in California. According to the Brea Gallery, guest juror, Rebecca Morse, Associate Curator at MOCA Los Angeles, selected 80 works of art from about 600 statewide entries.
Black’s pastel on display, “the Lie” (pictured here to the right), is her most recent painting however it is the fourth time that her art has been selected for this juried show, making her a leading pastel artist in California. Black has been taking SCE drawing and painting classes for the last 16 years. According to her instructor, Jane Innes, “Laura is not only a star student, a remarkable person and artist, but she is also very generous with her time and assistance to fellow students. We are lucky to have her as an SCE student!" A testament to Black’s talents, “the Lie” was sold on the opening night of the show.
The Brea Gallery is located at 1 Civic Center Circle in Brea, California and open Wednesday - Sunday from 12 - 5 p.m. Admission is $2; Brea residents and children under 12 years of age are free.

COMMUNITY MEMBERS CAN ATTEND ONE OF THREE NEW INFORMATION WORKSHOPS ON THE PERSONAL CARE AIDE CERTIFICATE COURSE
Community members interested in gaining job sills in an accelerated time frame can attend one of the three upcoming information workshops on the Personal Care Aide (PCA) course. SCE’s PCA course is designed to prepare students to provide or support activities of daily living, personal care, and homemaker services to elderly and disabled individuals needing assistance to remain safely and independently in their own home or in a care facility. The course is free, but students must qualify. Upon successful completion, students will receive a certificate of completion.
The employment outlook in the PCA field is good. The number of Aides is expected to grow much faster than the average growth rate for all occupations. This is due to the aging of the population and the increasing number of people who want to remain in in the familiar surroundings of their home.
The PCA Information Workshop will provide students information on the eligibility criteria along with an overview of the PCA Program, the registration process, and the employment outlook. Students are encouraged to attend one of the following Information Workshops:
* Wednesday, 3/28/12, 10:00 a.m.-11:00 a.m. at Anaheim Campus-Room 105
* Wednesday, 3/28/12, 6:00 p.m.-7:00 p.m. at Anaheim Campus-Room 105
* Thursday, 3/29/12, 5:00 p.m. -6:00 p.m. at Anaheim Campus-Room 101
All workshops will be held at the Anaheim Campus (1830 W. Romneya Drive, Anaheim, CA 92801). Please be on time; latecomers will not be admitted. This is a four-week course starting on April 9, 2012 and runs Monday-Thursday from 9:00 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. For more information, call 714-808-4915.
