The first workshop was “Painting with Pastels. We got an overview of some of the history of the site prior to choosing where and what to create and were able…

This past week was the last full week of school for us… two more days next week. It really doesn’t feel like summer.

Budget Cuts

There is an updated federal budget and it shows something that immediately triggered the CEEQER in me… a cut in funding to all the art and education programs. This is a MAJOR shift and as an Art educator in the public school system, I will be affected by this change. So when I read this,…

Art is Prayer

“How breathtaking it is to start out on a journey into the unknown. To start off in new directions takes courage, and faith.

Road Trip Recap… Part deuce

Thanksgiving is a day known in our history for the relationship between the light skinned settlers and the native people of the Americas. Historically, the story goes there was peace with all who sat and ate together. People all over celebrate this day of thanks… this day of giving.
