April 14: Makana
Last chance for tickets
to see slack key virtuoso


Time is running out for you to get tickets to see Hawaiian slack key guitar master Makana next Thursday, April 14, at 7:30pm in our intimate, indoor Carriage House Theatre.

Hailed by Esquire Magazine as “the greatest living player of slack key guitar,” Makana is the youngest authority on his art form. His thrilling music transcends genre, integrating elements of folk, rock, classical, and more. The result is pure innovation, charting new sonic frontiers while keeping deep ties to tradition.

Dynamic ceramics
Create with clay this spring
weekly evening class
Hand Built Ceramics

What are you doing with your Monday evenings this May? Why not spend them making art? Join us for a once-a-week Hand Built Ceramics class each Monday from 6-8pm, May 2-23.

Explore working with clay off the wheel with instructor Charlee Wagner. You'll learn how to create simple and complex ceramic forms, moving from flat to three-dimensional works. Various building, glazing, and surface design techniques will also be demonstrated.

Wagner is a ceramicist, woodworker, and photographer who also happens to be Montalvo's Education Director. She has led arts courses both in and out of the classroom throughout her career, teaching children and adults alike. 

No previous experience working with clay is required to take this course, and a small group size ensures great instructor-to-student guidance. Plus, you'll walk away with several pieces of your own creation!

Register today by clicking the button below or calling our box office at 408-961-5858 10am-4pm Monday-Friday.
