Preping for Fall........



Since the early 70s, I have had a strong tie to this building and the folks who keep it operating as the fine art center that it is. 

This little old farm house was donated to the group in 1971 and through the years volunteers have raised funds to remodel, added on, paint and repair and make this building into a fine, active art center.  A place where beginners and pros can go to make friends, teach a class, take a class or just paint and make new friends. 

I have been busy this week getting ready to take our show on the road.  Friday I will spend the afternoon introducing the art center to a broader community at an event called a Resource Fair.  The fair is intended to introduce member of the Woodburn community to businesses and services that are available in our community.  We hope to attract some new members and inform a few folks about all the great things that go on in this little red farmhouse.

Other than that I'm prepping to teach a journaling class with another woman.  We did something similar last fall.  This time it will be at the art center.  My friend is the creative writing instructor and I'm doing the art teaching.  Should be fun.

I've decorated the covers of a few composition books to give to our students for note taking.  Hope they like them.....


Hope you are enjoying the fading fall weather where you are and busy making arty messes.

Love that picture of that farm house. I bet there are many, many good memories there. Of course, I hope for the very best in your latest art endeavor. It sounds interesting and I hope it's successful. And of course, I love the books you decorated for your newest class.

However, I have to admit, summer is NOT winding down here. It's still hot and sultry.
