Subjects include beading, ceramics, drawing, multimedia, painting, photography, sculpture, and writing. Kids Art Klub will give moms and dads a needed break from 11:00am to 1:00 on Wednesdays.

You can stop by the center or go online to to get a copy of the catalogue. Rebecca also said, “The opening was a great success and some of the comments from guests were: ‘It’s so bright and beautiful’ and ‘this feels like my second home!’”

The instructors include Master Sculptor Bob Gottschall, Master Potter Ross Heberly, Master Painters Dan Gilroy and Janet Fisher, Multimedia Artist Extraordinaire Cindy Benedict, Storyteller Maggie Goodman, Thyme Traveling Doll Maker Marcia Cash, the remarkable Potter Drew Faught, Artist and Clinical Therapist Joanne Evett, retired Peace Officer, now Commission Painter, Terry Dunkum, and certified Waldorf Teacher Charlotte Lovett. “We are so pleased to offer a truly remarkable group of instructors for our first course schedule,” Rebecca commented.
