Camps and Summer Classes begin FRIDAY!

Hello All,

My first school year back has come to a close and the spring proved to be exceedingly busy, but I’ve got two clean classrooms there and am ready to get back to the business that is Created to Grow and our fun creative summer opportunities at Community Grounds and in my backyard studio. As I transition back into this work, I’ve found some significant technical difficulties on the website, so bear with me as I find a little time to sit down with my developer and get it fixed. For now, please RSVP, call or email to register for those classes you are interested in and I’ll send you an invoice. Payment can be taken the first day of class or via paypal.

See you in the Studio,
