Milpitas community briefs for the week of May 7

In-person learning

The San Jose-Evergreen Community College District—which includes San Jose City College, Evergreen Valley College, the Milpitas College Extension and the Community College Center for Economic Mobility in San Jose—announced that in-person instruction will resume this fall. The return will happen in phases, with courses that involve labs or hands-on learning resuming first. During the transition, many classes will still be offered remotely. The fall term begins Aug. 30.

Open Studios online

Silicon Valley Open Studios—the longstanding event where South Bay artists showcase their work and workspaces—is going virtual again this year with an online art show and sale throughout the month of May.

Sales will help provide free arts programs for children who are underserved or experiencing homelessness via DrawBridge, which will receive 15% of all proceeds.

Last fall’s virtual open studios event raised more than $4,000 for Second Harvest Food Bank, said SVOS executive director Stephen Toll.

The spring show will go live May 1. More than 100 artists will display over 600 pieces of art, including painting, fiber arts, mixed media, jewelry, sculpture and ceramics. Except for photographs and prints, each artwork is one of a kind.

To view the show, visit and click on “Member Artists.” Visitors can search by artists’ names or by the type of art.
