First Place

Annie Sun is 14 years old and lives in Newbury Park. She attends Newbury Park High school as a freshman. Annie has been drawing since the age of four, taking classes from many teachers and institutes. She loves going to the Ventura County Fair, especially going on the different rides and visiting the animals. These attractions were the main inspiration for her artwork.

Besides her passion for art, Annie loves playing the violin. She enjoys participating in her high school orchestra and in the Conejo Valley youth orchestra. Her favorite subject in school is math. She hopes her artistic ability will continue to follow her through the rest of high school, and help her get into her dream college.

 

Gardens of the World- Carole Caccavo Watercolor Art Exhibit

 

Carole Caccavo Art Exhibit

Tuesday, August 12 – Sunday, September 21 
Having a warm love for sketching, drawing, and painting, Carole Caccavo, a longtime resident of Thousand Oaks, has been a devoted artist for many years. Initially, Carole concentrated on floral arrangements using oil paints. She gradually transitioned to teaching cloth doll making, and selling Tole painted items that she created. In the past few years, she expanded her interest in art, by painting still life scenes using watercolors. Her passion is painting countryside panoramas, rustic buildings and bridges, old world canals and street scenes. Shades of warm browns, soft beiges, light grays and mellow greens are prevalent in her paintings. She is currently enrolled at Studio 316, Thousand Oaks where she is perfecting techniques in detailing, depicting perspectives, and developing color contrasts. Carole Caccavo has exhibited her art work at the Ventura County Fair where she was awarded several First Place and Second Place ribbons.
