Andrea Morris
Andrea Morris lives in Merced. She has two earned master’s degrees, in art and cultural anthropology. She has worked as a museum curator, supervisor, public relations director, university lecturer, grant writer and fundraiser. Many years ago, Andrea began a very difficult and trying time in her life. She had a series of medical diagnoses and became familiar with the medical journey to healing. Her artwork reflects that journey. Morris uses watercolors, charcoal and pencil drawings, pastels and oils in her artwork. Her work is intended to inspire and encourage those who may find themselves on a similar “unintended” journey into sickness and healing. Receptions will be held on April 20 and May 18 from 5-9 pm.

Children, Class/Workshop, Special Event
Bobcat Young Writers Academy
The UCMWP Bobcat Young Writers Academy is a summer writing program for all students entering grades 1-8 in the fall. During the two weeks, students write daily, sharing, discussing, revising and editing their writing with other young writers, all under the guidance of UC Merced Writing Project teacher consultants. In doing so, they begin to understand the difference between writing for self and writing for a reader. Students will build their stamina as writers through daily journaling, and the teachers will guide them to explore some of the many ways writing is used: to inform, entertain, persuade and reflect. In two short weeks, students will develop the habits of good writers, with their eyes and minds focused on what it means to write and revise for a reader.
