TWAA artists! Time to Show your Art again!

COUNTDOWN to the “KEY” EVENT of the SUMMER : ONE WEEK, 7 Days. Mark your calendar! You do not wamt to miss this !! 50 + booths, 6 venues, all around Key Center !
The final mural was put up last week by artist Chris Bronstad and Two Waters board members Gretchen-Bob Shepherd, & Delia McGinnis. It proudly hangs at the KC Corral. Murals will be offered at TWAA auction. If you want to secure your favorite, send a message !
More Artist Murals !!! 3 more murals went back up …. that means 7 are back up with just one to go. This quilt mural is done by the fabulous Patti Nebal and hangs thanks to CozyCountryKeepsakes. Honk if you spot it !!
Patti at Madrona Star Studio is looking for a new pottery studio apprentice. Here are the details.

So I am looking for a new apprentice. This person would work with me 3 hours a week. They would do whatever needs to be done around the studio for 1 ½ hours, at my direction. Then the second 1 ½ is their own time. They can have an open studio, or I will teach them, or direct their efforts. Whatever they wished. I furnish all clay, glazes and firing. They would have to furnish their own transportation. I am somewhat flexible as to which day it is. I’ve had a high school girl in the past, but am not locked in to that. I don’t think it should be anyone below 9th grade, but I am certainly not opposed to an adult either. Please spread the word around to anyone you think might be interested.
My son and daughter did a Key Peninsula Northwest painting for you for an auction fundraiser that was supposed to be towards the end of November. My son has tried to reach you and has not received a call back. They worked night and day for 5 weeks on this large mural painting featuring a Northwest ocean and mountain scene and Native American tribe in their traditional long boat. They were to receive half of the proceeds from the auction. Please write back to me on Facebook.
I wish I had a better camera to take a proper photo of this painting, but it’ll have to do. This mini mural is for the Two Waters Arts Alliance. It is 5 feet by 5 feet and I titled it “Communion”. This fun, highly experimental project will be dropped off in the Key Peninsula Monday! This was certainly the fastest I’ve ever done a painting of this size... woot!
Two Waters Arts Alliance has been joining us throughout the school closure and this summer to distribute Creativity Kits to our kids on the Key Peninsula. They have provided take home art projects like paper mache bowls, cork boats and more. The students enjoy the projects and we love this partnership.

Cathie Johnson considers herself a Northwest regional landscape painter and her favorite way of accomplishing
this is to be outdoors or painting en plein aire all summer. Watercolors are her favorite media when outside. She loves the way the
colors blend on the paper when working wet into wet, their sparkle and transparency. Her
preference- painting marine subject matter including boats, lighthouses, docks, marshes,
oyster farms and netsheds to name a few.

COMMENTARY: For students in California, arts education is a civil rights issue

Schools need to expand arts education to more students now more than ever

COMMENTARY: For students in California, arts education is a civil rights issue While arts programs support academic and school climate goals, they are often the first to be cut from the budget.
