DARE TO DRAW with Tracy Bruton
“Because art is a visual language all of my students speak in a voice that is clear, distinct and as individual as they are:” Tracy Bruton
Have you ever wanted to learn to draw, to lose yourself in the magic that happens with a piece of paper and a drawing tool? Well, you CAN. Everyone can! In this class I will teach you how to see like an artist sees. If you can “SEE” it, you can draw it. Imagine being able to convincingly render anything that is placed in front of you. The class will be taught in bite sided increments to guarantee success. You will be amazed by your prhyogression. We will begin with Graphite but will eventually expand to charcoal, oil pastel, pen and ink, and more. Tracy's bio
All of your supplies will be provided.
You can contact Tracy at email@example.com
Lessons are in Tracy's home on Thursday evenings from 6:00-7:30.
The cost is $30 per class

Linda Passeri will share her experiences from some of her large-scale projects in Springfield and her collaborative work in Joplin.
Linda said: "Public art is unique work for artists in many ways.
Having early experience in sign shops gave me a good foundation for exterior mural work but having to climb a ladder and have an audience while you work, is unlike anything else!"

Fresh Gallery Spotlight: Nadine Ellmanwas on Ozark Live January 24th. Please click here to view her interview.
Although I’ve been traveling to visit many grandchildren in Canada and upstate Illinois, I have been busy with two of my favorite mediums…stained glass designs and artisan oil painting.
The glass panels were created for Just for Him, a men's gift shop on Battlefield Road, and the oil paintings are hanging in Gailey’s Breakfast Cafe on Walnut Street along with many others from the Finley River Fine Art group. This is my first experience displaying my paintings in public, have appreciated all the help from other local artists and look forward to creating more paintings and glass designs this year.
