Ms. Doll brings to the Art Center many talents from business management to teaching, as well as creative skills and a powerful desire to serve her community. “I love my job!” Ms. Doll says with raw enthusiasm. “It is an honor to serve the community and bring out the artist in everyone. I’m excited to deliver inspired art instructors with compelling curricula in numerous art mediums. Blanco County is so blessed to have such a brilliant studio in which to learn. We will create abundant jois de vive!” says Doll.
Preparations are underway to open the center February 1st with a Mardi Gras Masquerade Party, and it’s open to the entire community.
