Imagine a kindergartner sitting in Downtown drawing a picture of
the Lodi Arch with crayons next to a well-known local artist
painting the same scene with charcoal.
During Father’s Day weekend in June, the Lodi Community Art
Center will sponsor a plein air art contest. “Plein air” is French
and means painting outdoors in natural light.
