Morro Bay Art Association is proud to present an excursion to the Pictographs found on the Carrizo Plain, with a visit to the art studio of Jan Cooper.
Jan has been an integral part of the Carrizo Plain her entire life. With family roots reaching back generations, her watercolor collage paintings reflect the Native American pictographs found in what is now a National Monument. Jan will demonstrate watercolor collages of rock paintings and share her knowledge of the area.
Board a luxury charter in Morro Bay and travel in comfort to the Carrizo Plain. A tour guide from the Goodwin Education Center will provide a brief history. The group will then travel to the Painted Rock Parking Lot and hike approximately two thirds of a mile to Painted Rock. Although the path does not have a significant change in elevation, it is not handicapped accessible.
Painted Rock, a large U-shaped rock, features what was once an elaborate, multicolored pictograph site created by the Chumash, a Native American people who historically inhabited the coastal regions of California. Time spent within the Painted Rock alcove may be limited or canceled to protect prairie falcons or other nesting birds.
Not surprisingly, the power of this location, with it’s historical, Native American Pictographs, continues to enthrall visitors today.
Visitors will then re-board the tour van, traveling approximately thirty minutes to the studio of Jan Cooper, where lunch will be served. Guests may enjoy an opportunity to make sketches or photograph the beautiful Carrizo Plain!

Morro Bay Art Association is proud to present a Dinner and Excursion to the Field of Light Installation by Bruce Munro at Sensorio, located in Paso Robles, CA.
Internationally acclaimed artist, Bruce Munro, will premier his largest artwork to date!
This enormous multi acre Field of Light exhibit will use an array of over 58,800 stemmed spheres, lit by fiber-optics to gently illuminate the landscape in subtle blooms of dazzling color that describe the undulating landscape.
Powered by solar, this stunning walk through experience will captivate!
Smithsonian Magazine has called Munro’s art “stunning,” while The Guardian noted, “This is art you feel, rather than art you view.”
Begin a fabulous evening with a family style Italian dinner at Art Center Morro Bay! Bring the family. Leave the driving to us and travel in comfort aboard a luxury tour bus. Then, it’s off to Sensorio for an experience of a lifetime!
