First Friday at Tehachapi Treasure Trove will feature Lucinda Thomas, artist and teacher. Lucinda is currently teaching a Fluid Paint class and a clay class at the Treasure Trove. She also teaches our monthly paint night. Lucinda has taught classes in calligraphy, children's art, drawing, wheel work ceramics and abstract painting.

Lucinda has taught art in various forms for over 30 years. She majored in art and studied in Spain. She began her career painting giant billboards while teaching ceramics in private schools. Eventually Lucinda ran an after school art program and taught developmentally disabled adults, but found working in prisons to be the most challenging and retired after 20 years from CSP-LAC as a Recreation Therapist

Lucinda was born in Mexico City where her parents were attending the university to become art and music teachers. She was raised in Rancho Cucamonga and wanted to become a nun throughout high school. After 18 months in Europe she returned to the States where she married her best friend and moved to Big Bear for a couple of years. They eventually settled on raising their family in Claremont where they stayed for over 20 years. She moved to California City after her divorce and retired in 2013. She is actively involved with the California City Arts Commission where she teaches classes, as well as classes at the Treasure Trove in Tehachapi.

Tehachapi Treasure Trove is located at 116 E. Tehachapi Blvd., right across the street from the water tower in Railroad Park. Hours are daily 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Sundays 11 to 4 p.m. Be sure to stop by and see our collection of uncommonly eclectic and unusually unique stuff.
