Some Final Classes at Room 101, an Art Studio in Mars

Hello all,

As many of you have heard by now, this summer is my last at Room 101, an Art Studio in Mars.

I am grateful for all the wonderful students I have had in class and for the families I have gotten to know.
Ten years has gone by very quickly and it is hard to believe our first students are off in college.
I have many great memories.
You all were the reason for Room 101, an Art Studio in Mars.

I planned a few more one day classes in the next two weeks and will have some supplies and equipment for sale.
The items for sale will be out 1/2 hour before and after the following classes and I will have a one day sale of anything left on Wednesday the 16th of August form 1pm to 8pm.
I will also have much of my artwork for sale… think ahead for holidays if you like.

Anyone that has any artwork in the studio, please pick up.
Anyone that wants to finish any artwork at the studio, please email to reserve a spot during one of the following classes.

The following classes were requested by our students so I thought I would add them.
For these last classes, I will include a wide range of ages for everyone that might be interested.
If you, a parent, or anyone home from college... wants to take class with your student, just let me know. It might be fun.
Email to reserve your spot and I will send a registration form.
