On March 22nd Michelle will be using the elephant as her instructional subject , seeing as how it’s one of the more daunting “skin” textures to attempt.  Artists will be working on 8×10 canvas. Join us at Studio 209 for a morning of artistry, skill-building, and a whole lot of fun. Snacks and all art supplies will be provided. Sign... read more
