Instructors at the Burbank Creative Arts Center are debunking the myth that "those who can't do, teach." Ten ceramics teachers will display their works at an opening at the Creative Arts Center Gallery on Friday. Longtime ceramic instructor Judy Springborn's love of sculpture began while she was enrolled as an art history major during the 1960s at UCLA. "One of the requirements was to take a ceramics class, so I took a class and loved it," Springborn said. After college, she got married and started raising a family.

CITY HALL — A second piece of public art is headed for the Chandler Bikeway after receiving the full support of the City Council. The art piece, called "Family Outing," was created by Utah-based artist Gary Lee Price and depicts three bronze figures riding bicycles. A young child, with training wheels on his bike, leads the trio, followed by father and his daughter. The piece is about 11 feet long, 7 feet wide and 5 feet in height, Parks Recreation and Community Services Department Director Eric Hansen said.

JOYCE RUDOLPH Artist Leo Monahan attributes his sense of becoming one with nature to growing up in the Black Hills of South Dakota. From age 12 to 17, he lived on his grandfather's ranch surrounded by miners, cowboys and loggers. "Everybody had a job that could kill them," he said. Life for a teenager was quite the opposite. "It was a Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn life," said the former Burbank resident. "We had a trout stream in the backyard and mountains all around."

It?s not every day that most of us visit a deceased loved one, but the fact that Forest Lawn Glendale has created a destination around that experience is quite intriguing. Equipped with replica statue of David, a labyrinth, America?s largest painting and many more ?attractions,? it is what I?ve always considered the Disneyland of Death, so it is fitting that Michael Jackson will be buried in this Forest Lawn on Thursday. Forest Lawn, as a cultural artifact, has an interesting history; of a visionary man seeing his wildest dream come to life.

Sculptor Karen Cope is igniting a revival of techniques made famous by the old masters in her new Glendale studio. Her own renaissance began after the 29-year-old Glendale artist graduated in 1999 from Cal State Long Beach, where she majored in 3-D art media. Her class work in woodworking and drawing had been more abstract and conceptual, she said, which didn't train her to realistically capture the human figure. "It didn't give me the technique and accuracy I wanted to strive for," she said.

An exhibition of historical coins, bronze and marble sculptures and paintings has just opened at the Forest Lawn Museum in Glendale. The unifying element of these American and European artists’ works is that this eclectic mix is part of the Forest Lawn permanent collection, said Joan Adan, exhibit designer and curator. “It’s showcasing Forest Lawn’s fine art in its paintings, sculpture, and ancient and world coins,” she said. James Eaton, father of Forest Lawn founder Hubert Eaton, collected the items, Adan said.

A $450,000 proposal to populate Lincoln Park with three sculptures was rejected by the City Council this week as being too expensive, sending city officials back to drawing board. “I think $450,000 is way too much money,” Mayor Dave Golonski said on Tuesday. He said he'd be more interested in a figure that was half that amount. Golonski was joined by Councilmen David Gordon and Gary Bric in rejecting the proposed sculpture garden, which would have been paid for by tapping a fund that developers pay into as part of a public art fee for new projects in the city.
