Free Veterans Art Classes

Joanie's next free class for Veterans is May 23-24 and will be at her home studio. The class is in conjunction with the Sonoran Arts League and their Veterans Art Program. The League's veterans program is been very successful and Joanie's class is already full.

Guest Teachers

Something else that Joanie's doing is asking a few other teachers to teach classes at her studio. Cuvee Art recently had guest artists/teachers Pat Stacy and Nancy Kristy-Moore teach wonderful classes in their media. Darlene Saucedo is another fabulous artist who will be teaching a gourd class here on September 14. Her gourd work is spectacular. Contact Darlene for details and to sign up for the class.

Wuertz Gourd Farm Class

Joanie recently taught a Sculpting With Gourds class at the Wuertz Gourd Farm in Casa Grande. The students, Wuertz family, and Joanie were so happy with the class that another class is being planned for the Fall. Stay tuned for details.
