Stop by the Camera Obscura Art Lab and take part in the 9th annual Art Break Day! From its 2011 inception in San Francisco, Art Break Day has grown into an international event, celebrated in 143 locations across six countries. So far this project has creatively energized over 30,000 participants, who report making new friends, feeling self-empowered, and discoving pride in and joy for the creative process. Art Break Day was created by the non-profit organization Art is Moving. It’s a daylong celebration that encourages all people to sit down, take a short break from their busy lives, and make art for free, together with people from around the world. The event occurs simultaneously in all participating locations on the first Friday of September. This year it will be celebrated in over 40 locations, including cities across the United States, India, Bolivia, Malaysia, Mexico, Pakistan, Philippines, the United Kingdom, Ireland, and Venezuela.

Rasmussen is a Santa Monica-based painter, sculptor, teacher, and holistic life coach, who has spent over 16 years teaching the art-making process as a tool for healing, empowerment, and transformation.
