Summer at the Top

RIP Fish 2007 – 2020

This year we would have had our 13th Annual Student Show, but the pandemic has changed everything. Remembering our very first show at PACTV, some of the works were of our goldfish who posed for us many times over the years. I am sorry to report that the Fish has expired after 13 years of swimming around in his tank, offering his modelling  services, and making his corner of my home more feng shui. He was one of three 17-cent fish I got for the kids to draw. The other two died after a few months, but this Fish persisted! Here are a few paintings of him. He was a fabulous fish.


Our second week of Covid Creative Classes produced some awesome masks and artworks. Enjoy this eclectic array of acrylic and watercolor wonders!

If you have a bubble group and want me to schedule more sessions, contact me, and I’ll see if I can arrange it.

IMPORTANT COVID INFO: We wear masks, and sanitize hands upon entering the studio. We keep our masks on unless we are 6′ or more apart from others. We assume we all may have it, and protect the people around us. We keep the skylights and windows open, and the fan on. We wash our hands and the things we touch often. We’ll sanitize areas and materials as they get handled.  If someone doesn’t feel well, please stay home.

Kids come in the front door and take shoes off for now until the side entrance is finished.


This is our 36th zoom class! Just click the link to join the Zoom class.
