Solana Beach painter shares love of art with kids at SDSU Children’s Center

Judy Moffson

Two at a time, kids at San Diego State University’s Children’s Center used oil paints to create a 38-by-46-inch painting. Solana Beach artist Judy Moffson set up her 9-foot tall easel at the center on March 21 as part of the annual “A is for Art” program.

“I did not lay one brushstroke on the canvas. I tried to give them some ideas by telling them to close their eyes and think about their favorite things,” said Moffson, who has lived in Solana Beach since 1976. “They lined up and were very excited to participate. It was just a really wonderful, fun experience for all of us.”

Del Mar’s ‘Mother Paige’ makes news with her hand-painted icons

"Mother Paige"

Despite the more casual, contemporary use of the word “icon,” icons are actually part of an ancient tradition of Christian art, inspirational paintings of sacred subjects that may date back to the time of the apostles, when St. Luke was said to have painted images of the Virgin Mary. Icons were particularly popular during the Byzantine Empire, when frescoes flourished, and the art of iconography spread across Europe to Russia.
