ART LESSONS in drawing, watercolor, and acrylic. Please contact me to register and schedule your classes. Youth through adults, beginner and up are welcome.

Meet me for Art Club on Tuesday mornings at the Retreat coffee shop in Ely, Iowa. Explore art in general or improve your skills with drawing practice. Arrive at the Retreat's meeting room by 9:30 for a demo, warm up, and then work independently on the project of your choice. If you have art supplies, feel free to bring them. First-time artists can use my stock supplies before purchasing their own. This is a self-led/community-based group. Please contact me for art lessons if you prefer guided learning.
Art Club Registration Required: 24 hours advance notice please, as we are meeting most, but not all Tuesdays. $10/session. 

You won't want to miss this chance to learn about Wine 101, as you swirl and sip with Lauren Chalupsky-Cannon of the Secret Cellar. That's not all -- you'll create your own small canvas, an experience led by local artist Lianne Westcot. Previous participants have sung the praises of this unique art and wine event.
