Yay! Poster Winner for Lerner Books

I just found out that my poster won the Lerner Books “Make Learning Colorful” poster contest which I submitted for the Library. Allerton Public Library received copies of Lerner’s two new Crayola series (10 books) and $500 in Crayola art supplies. The new books will be on the shelf this winter to help inspire all the budding artists and the Crayola supplies will help spice up the kids crafts.  https://lernerbooks.blog/2017/11/announcing-crayola-poster-contest-winner.html

Peony Painting with MAAC and Allerton House – 2015

I recently held a class for ~20 participants on peony painting in the garden of Allerton Park and Retreat Center in Monticello, IL. The Monticello Area Arts Council approached me about the event and I wasn’t sure about the setting and how it would go. I was pleasantly surprised by the enthusiasm and willingness of the painters. They seemed to have such a good time, from the inexperienced to those who painted without guidance. Quite a fun night!
