Ice-cream-cone-watercolor-laure-paillex-2020Did you know that the third week in July is National Ice Cream Week? As if we need an official proclamation to venerate the yummy, creamy confection we all love!

Paint with a thankful heart

Explore ArtWeek 2020 - May 1 - 10

This is my happy place - colorful brushes by Laure Paillex Explore ArtWeek  #ArtWeekAtHome is the reimagined format replacing the original ArtWeek that would have featured almost 800 creative events in over 170 communities across the state, including many free events for families, children, residents, and visitors.

Staying Connected While "Isolating"

It's a marvelous age we live in...

Every decade, every century in the recorded history of mankind has had its challenges and trials to face. Wars, plagues, economic collapses, natural disasters and combinations of turmoils are not uncommon, they are facts of life in this broken world.  Somehow, it seems more personal when these events interrupt our twenty-first-century daily lives.  No toilet paper!  Social "distancing"!  Three weeks stuck at home with a house full of kids - or a retired husband!  Why is the internet so s-l-o-w!

Merry Christmas and Happy New YearTradition holds that Christmas is a Season of joys celebrated beginning on December 25th and continuing to January 6th - the Epiphany, as it is called, when the three Magi found the young child Jesus and presented Him with their gifts (Matthew 2:11).

Winter Storm Class Cancellations

Silly Snowflake Face by Laure PaillexOld Man Winter seems to have arrived early this year!  The temperatures have been unseasonably cold, and tomorrow promises rain, sleet, and snow - and it's only the 2nd of December!  So, with tomorrow's class cancellations, I thought it would be a good idea to review our class cancellation announcement system.
