For the last several years I have been a member to the art organization W.A.R.M.. A Mpls./St.Paul. women's art organization. I do group shows with them as well as individual shows.
RESENT ACTIVITIES TO ADVANCE MY ARTISTIC ABILITIES: Recently I took a refresher drawing class,
taught by Gary Loch -SCTCC; three workshops from Bonnie Cutts and one
introduction class to her techniques. I have taken two years of computer
classes such as; Illustrator; Photoshop; In Design; Photography & Web page
Design with the intention of getting advertising experience in order to promote
my work and do contract work for other artists and nonprofit agencies.
I offering workshops and classes to other artists and people
of the community. Example: In April I will be holding a class in Melrose Mn.
for adults. The class will cover basic drawing techniques using charcoal and
colored pencil as the mediums. As my
skills improve I hope to continue to share my skill with some of the Central Mn. Communities. In the past I have taught community education
classes in St. Cloud and Sartell. I have
also substitute taught classes for Art Instructors and taught classes off and
on at the Little Falls Art Center to adults as well as children. I hope to
continue to give workshops to various age groups in the area of Central Mn.
