I sent this newsletter out a few days ago, but wanted to post it here as well. –Carla

Hi everyone!

I hope you are well.

Many of you know that Steve and I live in Seattle and have been somewhat affected by the current health situation, and we know that many of our friends around the world might be having an even more difficult time as well.

And so we just wanted to reach out with our thoughts and encouragement, and we hope that this community of artists can be an encouragement in this weird time.

Making and sharing art can be a comforting and helpful a way to refocus our thoughts…. To that end, we have reduced the cost of all of our classes by 15% (at least until the end of March), and have added Faces Mini and Flower Crazy Mini to our “Free Stuff” page (where there are also five years of Kids Art Week classes):


So if you are staying home (or have kids at home), we hope this can be a little bit of a positive distraction!

We hope everyone can stay creative and engaged, and please don’t hesitate to reach out if we can help in any way.

Steve and Carla

P.S. I love our grandson Ethan’s cat “Sam,” above, and I’ve been playing with his image this week. Thanks, Ethan!
