Free Veterans Art Classes

Joanie is teaching a couple free classes for Veterans this spring. The first one was held at Hobby Lobby and was sponsored by the Scottsdale Artists League. The next one will be at Joanie's studio sometime in May (exact date TBD) and is in conjunction with the Sonoran Arts League and their Verterans Art Program.

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 May 4. Her gourd work is spectacular and details will be available soon! Stay tuned!!!!!

Wuertz Gourd Farm Class

Joanie had a booth at the Wuertz Gourd Festival at the Pinal Fairgrounds in Casa Grande which had a tremendous amount of interest. As a result, the Wuertz Gourd Farm has requested Joanie to teach at the Farm on May 11. In a simple, relaxed, creative atmosphere, you will learn the necessary skills to complete a beautiful sculpture using a gourd as an armature. Check the Wuertz Gourd Farm website for further information and to sign up.
