The Sky's the Limit with The Stardust Arts at City Hall, Encinitas, December 3 - January 14, 2016

The Sky’s the Limit: The Stardust Arts: A Student Art Education Program Exhibits at Civic Center Gallery, Encinitas, December 3rd to January 14th, 2016.

What a great opportunity to display the student art of The Stardust Arts program, “The Sky’s the Limit.” Over 50 student’s works from 5 schools will be on exhibit at the Civic Center Gallery, City Hall in Encinitas during the 2015 holidays and Supported by the San Dieguito Art Guild a non-profit located at 937 S. Coast Hwy, C103 in Encinitas, CA.

Though not always recognized, art education is a fundamental building block of a child’s development. Since Plato’s time, arts have been a standard component of the common curriculum. Through art, a culture defines and molds itself; and with the growth of the graphic design industry, art education plays an increasingly relevant role. Stardust Arts is a California-based, visual art education program for kids established in 2009 by its founder, Cheryl Ehlers. As the primary educator, Ehlers has reached out to over 12,600 children and is known for her unique ability to help children discover their creative side. Stardust Art brings to underserved students the development of engaging the mind to reflect creativity and visions, and apply those thoughts to creating art. Since art is a universal form of communication, the expression of thought and processing is developed, and is necessary in the further development of a student’s academic success to a well-rounded education

Ehlers created The Stardust Arts as an after school arts program for first through fifth grade students. Few opportunities for positive after school experiences exist for low income children. It It began with a generous grant from the Kenneth A. Picerne Foundation. Ehlers mission was to bring excitement to the learning process, encourage artistic perception, and teach children problems can have more than one solution. She has assisted children in developing visual and spatial organization, creativity, and in building confidence in order to succeed in life. Since 2009 12,600 students in over 19 schools, local organizations and City programs have been available through grants, making classes available to underserved students. As the primary educator, and an artist herself, she is known for her unique ability to help children discover their creative side. Ehlers believes, art education is a fundamental building block of a child’s development and that each child holds within their makeup, exceptional creative visualization, a talent that goes beyond words, and that enables one to communicate with others though form. Art education plays an increasingly relevant role in today’s society and creates a well-rounded education.

The Stardust Arts is recognized by the California State Assembly, and the San Diego County Board of Supervisors for its contributions to the San Diego County Community. It is and is part of a worldwide children’s art organization, Artsonia, and the National Educational Association.

Ehlers believes in teaching her students to “reach for the stars, and if you simply try, you can succeed at anything”., 760-519-1551.

San Dieguito Art Guild, President Carol Korfin presents Cheryl Ehlers, Founder of The Stardust Arts funding for youth art.

At the December Annual Small Image show reception for the Gallery artists, The Stardust Arts was awarded funding to promote additional youth art programs.  The sponsorship could not have come at a better time, as Stardust will be promoting its “Angels” program in select schools, providing art to underserved students in the beginning of 2015.  Great things can can come in small packages!

The Stardust Arts, visual arts program was developed to encourage youth and student's personal interests, while providing a greater appreciation for visual art, in order to bring excitement to the learning process, encourage artistic perception, and teach children that problems can have more than one solution. Children develop visual spatial organization, creativity, as well as basic skills. Understanding perspective empowers them with confidence, it is a fantastic development.

There are many programs that provide an art experience, but Stardust tries to transform youth by adding the
element where expression reigns supreme.  “To see the smiles on faces, and the confidence it can build is amazing” states Cheryl. The Stardust Arts has been involved in the North San Diego coastal communities since 2009, and taught over 11,900 students providing an outreach program to all ages of children in numerous locations:  elementary schools, local Boys and Girls Clubs, outreach at community events and fairs, hosting private venues, exhibiting in public libraries, and any source where students art can share the joy of art in one's life.  “Something everyone needs to recognize today, you might say, I am just a kid at heart, and I love to relate to each student.  It is a gift that keeps giving, both ways”.

Stardust began with a dream, and was realized with the assistance of so many organizations that share in the belief, art can make a difference.  Special thanks go to the Kenneth A Picerne Foundation, City of Encinitas, City of Carlsbad, City of Oceanside who have provided The Stardust Arts the ability to maintain the program.  Together we “can” make a difference in the lives of youth, and great things come in small packages.

“I am honored to have the support of the San Dieguito Art Guild", soon to celebrate their 50th year in the community. I appreciate their recognition of the value of art in the community, thank you all",  states Cheryl Ehlers.
