How did California, USA started and how and when he did leave the state of Mexico?

I wonder how the succession of California Mexico and when it appeared.

When the U.S. declared war on Mexico, May 13, 1846, took almost two months (mid-July 1846) by the word final war to come to California. U.S. Consul Thomas O. Larkin, stationed in Monterrey, hearing rumors of war tried to keep peace between the Americans and small Mexican military garrison commanded by José Castro. U.S. Army John C. Captain Fremont with 60 well-armed men had entered California in December 1845 and was doing a slow march to Oregon when he received word that war between Mexico and the U.S. was imminent. On June 15, 1846, approximately 30 occupants non-Mexicans, most Americans, rebelled and seized the small Mexican garrison in Sonoma. Raised the "Bear Flag" Republic of California at Sonoma. It lasted one week until the U.S. Army, led by Fremont, took over in June 23. Today, the state flag California is based on this original bear flag, and still contains the words "California Republic." Commodore John Drake Sloat, on hearing of the war imminent and the revolt in Sonoma, ordered his naval forces to occupy Yerba Buena (now San Francisco) in July 2007 and raise the American flag. On July 15, Sloat transferred his command to Commodore Robert F. Stockton, a much more aggressive leader. Commodore Stockton to Fremont forces under his command. On July 19, Fremont "California Battalion" rose to nearly 160 additional men from newly arrived settlers near Sacramento, and entered in Monterrey, in a joint operation with some of the sailors and infants Stockton Marine. The official word was out – the Mexico-American War was. U.S. forces easily took over northern California, a few days they controlled San Francisco, Sonoma and Sutter's Fort in Sacramento. In Southern California, Mexican General José Castro and Governor Pío Pico fled to Los Angeles. When Stockton's forces entered Los Angeles, without resistance on August 13, 1846, winning almost without bloodshed of California seemed complete. Stockton, however, left a very small force (36 men) in Los Angeles and California, acting on their own without the help of Mexico, led by José María Flores, small American garrison forced to retire at the end of September. 200 reinforcements sent by Stockton, led by U.S. Navy Captain William Mervine were rejected Battle of Dominguez Rancho October 7 through October 9, 1846, near San Pedro, where 14 U.S. Marines were killed. Kearny Meanwhile, a general very small squadron of 100 cavalry finally arrived in California after fatigue of a march in New Mexico, Arizona and the Sonoran Desert. December 6 1846, fought in the Battle of San Pasqual, near San Diego, California, where 18 soldiers were killed Kearny – the highest number of U.S. casualties have lost the battle California. Stockton is surrounded by the forces rescued Kearny and with their combined strength, they moved north of San Diego, entering the area of Los Angeles on 8 January 1847, the link with the men of Fremont and U.S. forces, for a total of 660 soldiers who fought in the Battle Californio the San Gabriel River and the next day January 9, 1847, fought in the Battle of La Mesa. Three days later, on January 12, 1847, the last significant number of Californios surrendered to the forces U.S.. This marked the end of the war in California. On January 13, 1847, the Treaty of Cahuenga was signed. On January 28, 1847, Army Lieutenant William Tecumseh Sherman and his army unit arrived in Monterey, California, while U.S. forces remained in the pipe flowing into California. On March 15, 1847, Col. Jonathan D. Stevenson Seventh Regiment New York Volunteers of about 900 men begin to reach California. All these men were in place when gold was discovered in January 1848. The Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo, signed on February 2, 1848, marked the end of the Mexican-American War. In that treaty, the United States agreed to pay 18,250,000 dollars, Mexico formally ceded California (and other northern territories) to the United States, and a new international border was drawn up, San Diego Bay is one of the natural ports in Southern California, San Francisco, and claim all this water strategy, the border was willing to include it.

Barbara Willis was born in Bakersfield, California on June 29, 1917. He began his career studying with Laura Potter Anderson and trained with the teacher, Glen Lukens at UCLA in the 1930's. In 1942, Barbara opened the pottery first. With the shortage of domestic products due to the Second World War Barbara then went on to study ceramics. Barbara vitrification unique technique of color, vibrant and imitation wood designs were applied by large chain stores like Lord & Taylor Neiman Marcus, New York, Gump, and Macy's to name a few …. including the White House. The popularity of his work lasted until the mid 1950's, when interest in the art of ceramics was reduced due to increased imports after the war. Barbara Ceramics closed and moved to its next adventure.

In 1994, Barbara Willis found a piece of pottery in a market era. During a conversation with the seller, now in their phone number. A few weeks later, an avid collector of vintage to explain who is a legend of Ceramics California Art! Barbara was encouraged to start a new line of ceramic, this Barbara Willis, Pottery field reborn! Barbara uses a different approach making their contemporary line. She shakes hands with each part using one of three types of clay. Barbara vitrification process uses a single fire. Each piece is certainly one of a kind!

What a nice woman! I had the opportunity to meet Barbara Willis in person, in Los Angeles Pottery Show, Jan. 29 2005. While waiting to meet and talk to her, I took my book "Barbara Willis – Classic California Modernism by Jack Chipman," and asked if she had a good sign for me. Signed "For Alice, best wishes – Barbara Willis – 29.01.2004." Later I realized I had accidentally left in 2004 instead 2005. Like most of us, write the date of the previous year, until they are used for the new year. Since then, he did not mind the wrong date. I was very happy that I was talking to her and express my admiration for your work directly in person.

Barbara Willis spoke with enthusiasm for many reasons. First, I love pottery – not only the work of the harvest, but also the contemporary work. Here is a woman of 80, who now has his "creativity" moving work to the right of his home in Malibu Beach to make themselves known again to the world of ceramics after an absence of thirty-seven years of clay. I like many others, I am very grateful for their work and share the joy of his return and it is quickly being recognized as an important American potter!

You'll find pieces of his work, ancient and contemporary gallery well as some ceramic items handmade gifts such as necklaces, paperweights and ring holders. I am also proud to announce that Barbara Willis is the "Featured Artist" for the opening of the gallery.

If you want to know more about the life and work of Barbara Willis, the book mentioned is a great read! The author, Jack Chipman, had the opportunity of his interview for his book and process became good friends and he is now a student of it. A lucky man!

What are some good art schools in California?

So far, the list of universities that I have collected I have heard that are better Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California Institute of the Arts in Valencia (CalArt), and Otis College of Art and Design in Los Angeles are the best. More schools Art in California, on par with or better than those I mentioned or is it? Thanks in advance.

school not only see on your list that I know is the Institute Art not to go to art center. to enter you need to start with a portfolio of coming in pretty bad ass school. so far I've seen some people skills to quickly reach a plateau in the middle of the course. this would not be a problem if not required to pay every penny that you have only to sit through classes
