Andi Jorgensen has illustrated a children’s book!  After working on this for a year and a half her efforts can be appreciated and supported by purchasing this lovely little book on Amazon. The title is Oiseau: The Magical Bird (written by Debra Wosnik).

Kristi Grussendorf, BFA, AWS, NWS, TWSA, WFWS (also signature member of UWS & past president), is holding open studio classes on Thursdays from 6-8 PM and Saturday mornings from 10 to noon.  A punch card sells for $100 ($10/hour) & can be used at your convenience (just reserve your spot in advance, please).  Although her studio is in North Logan, UT, special arrangements for a longer session or a different day can be made for three or more students traveling together. 

Individual constructive critiques, student requested demonstrations & positive support/ encouragement are Kristi’s strong suits.  As a past “workshop junkie,” her tool box is full & she loves to share what she has learned!

UWS member, Jana Parkin, will be teaching a workshop at a castle in France in June 2020. Marouatte Castle, in the Dordogne region, sits on 240 acres of woodlands and looks like a fairy tale castle! Artists actually get to stay at a private room in the castle. Each has a private bath as well. We will also take day trips to the surrounding villages, which are amazingly picturesque and begging to be painted. Fairly nearby are the famed Lascaux caves, and Grotte de Villars with Neolithic paintings dating from 19,000 BC.

Visit janaparkin.com to be placed on the email list for more information about the castle workshop. Or reach out to her directly: janaparkinart@gmail.com.
