The lights of Izay Park glowed over Burbankers enjoying the simple summer pleasures of picnicking, watching children challenge the colorful playground equipment and catching a few innings of a softball game Friday night. If the artist Norman Rockwell were still alive, he would have found inspiration for one of his classic slice-of-American- life paintings at every turn. Just steps away from the park’s playground area, another group of folks were crossing the threshold of the Creative Arts Center to celebrate the opening of the gallery’s newest exhibit “Media Mix.” The reception, which showcased the work of local artists Peter Graziano , Ron Kriss and Antonio Pelayo , proved to be an interesting journey for family, friends, professional colleagues and supporters.

Principals will be accountable now I am the mother of two children who attend Roosevelt Elementary School. Teachers and parents who think that Ms. Stambolos is great don't know half the story. She is a monarch in a democratic country. I submitted several articles to the PTA newsletter, and they all were rejected by her, whereas similar articles by others were published. Moreover, at the beginning of this year, one of my children's teachers had to have Ms. Stambolos' permission for my child to bring a pencil box to the class.

In his pencil drawings, artist Antonio Pelayo Jr. keeps the viewer guessing if they are photographs or drawings. Each painstaking work takes Pelayo between 100 to 200 hours to complete, so any one piece may take three to eight months. "Most people think, when they first look at it, that it's a photograph," he said. "But when they come closer, they see it's just a pencil drawing." He describes his work as meticulous and precise. "Ninety percent of what I do is patience and the rest is skill and talent," he said.

Rudy Droguett has risked his life for the love of his art. The artist, who is in his 70s, has traveled to Africa twice to take pictures of wild animals, which he later uses as subjects in his scratchboard etchings. He's come close to losing his life, he said. During one trip to Kenya, the vehicle he was riding in had a flat tire. There was a lion lying under a tree nearby watching the entourage. Not wanting to miss the opportunity, Droguett got out of the vehicle to take a picture.

After taking more than three years off from the struggles of an emerging artist to become a mom, Adonna Khare of Burbank has returned in a big way. She arrived home on Sunday after winning what's probably the biggest people's choice award in the arts: the $200,000 first prize in the ArtPrize competition that Rick DeVos, a scion of the Amway Corp. sales fortune, launched in Grand Rapids, Mich., in 2009. Khare, 32, earned a master of fine arts degree from Cal State Long Beach in 2006, and has shown her carbon pencil drawings at the Lora Schlesinger Gallery in Santa Monica and the Municipal Art Gallery in L.A.'s Barnsdall Park.

Burbank's "The Dream Machine" won the Mayor's Award for best municipal float. Jon Reeves, president of the Burbank Rose Float Assn., designed the hydraulics and many other elements of the float. That includes the bed carrying a sleeping boy at the front of the float. The bed is made of structural steel, pencil rod steel, chicken wire and a plastic cocoon originally developed to mothball ships, Reeves said. Among the Burbank volunteers were Victor and Erica Luster of Santa Clarita, who began volunteering for the Burbank float 15 years ago. Victor Luster, wearng the patch he earned for volunteering at his first parade in 1998, said it all started when they were looking for something their bored teenage son could do. -- Elisabeth Frater and Bill Kisliuk , Times Community News

Jacqui Brown It sounds like a great deal when you can buy a box of eight crayons for around $1.50 or a pencil box for less than 50 cents, but when you start multiplying that 20 or 30 times, it tends to take a big bite out of the pocketbook. As a result of budget cuts for the California public schools and restricted tax credits, teachers are faced with the dilemma of choosing to spend their own money on school supplies for their students or depend on donations from parents.
