It took me four years to paint like Raphael, but a lifetime to paint like a child; every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up.  -Pablo Picasso

A Message from Miss Kathryn, December 18, 2015

As we wrap up our Fall session of classes this Saturday, we wish to thank all our families and students for your support and encouragement during our move to our new location.
And, thank you to all those that helped us celebrate the young artists ages 3-7,  by visiting the December exhibit and reception at the Bartlett Village Hall.
We also wish you a very blessed Holiday season and a New Year full of hope and joy!

As we move forward into 2015, here are some important studio reminders

  • Fall Classes end on Dec 20th and there are no studio classes or open studio sessions at Color My World in January. (However, Miss Kathryn has prepared  craft kits that will be available in the Arts in Bartlett Gallery for children that visit while the studio is closed; and, there is also a gallery scavenger hunt available for visitors. The gallery is open to the public on Thursdays and Saturdays 10-4 and Fridays noon-7. The gallery will not be open on Christmas Day or New Year’s Day.)
  • Tuesday, January 20th from 6-8 PM:  Student Exhibit and Reception You are invited to our Student Artist Reception at the Bartlett Village Hall 2nd Floor Gallery.
