Little Artists. Big talent. Monroe Elementary iCAN Art Show


Pablo Picasso once said that it took him a lifetime to paint like a child. Well, this Thursday the future Picasso's of Monroe Elementary School had the chance to showcase their art in front of friends and family. Blue-tailed cats, hills adorned with giant daffodils and portraits of their favorite superheroes, the collection boasted many creative and colorful pieces. The curation was made possible by the Incredible Children's Art Network (iCAN), whose mission is providing students of the Santa Barbara area opportunities to express themselves through art. While guests meandered through the collection, many of the families stopped by Open Air Photo Booth.

There's a unique kind of art in the way a mother can bring all of her children together, have them all look at the camera and produce a fantastic family portrait (or something close). Luckily, our Open Air attendants work just as hard to make that photo moment magic as you do.

For more photo magic, be sure to check out the Open Air Cube. With the Cube, designed for hashtag printing, anyone can become the artist. Simply capture an image on your phone, upload it to social media (Instagram, Twitter, etc.) and use the unique event hashtag (#) to send that image directly to our on-site printer. From there, using touchscreen technology and a push-to-print system, you can have any image from your phone to your hands in seconds.

Now that's art!
