Times Flies When You're Having Fun!

Hello out there...
Geez, can you believe it's the end of April already?
Maybe it's because I'm getting older, but it sure seems that time passes so quickly these days!
We've been busy at Jerry's Artarama this month.
Construction is (almost!) done on the building/parking lot/shopping center. They just put the new parking space lines down today, so it will be a little easier parking for you. We are anxiously awaiting Trader Joe's to join us here in Holly Park Shopping Center too, so any updates we get, I'll be sure to pass them along.
We've had several Free Demos here for your pleasure and hope you've enjoyed them too. Please keep coming by! It's great to see you and also great to share our knowledge and love af art with each and every one of you!
If you haven't checked them out, please visit our Free Art Lessons on line. This is just another way we at Jerry's get to share our love of what we do with you, our valued customer. So, please enjoy our over 350 Free Art Lessons on our Web site.
We are just wrapping up another three day workshop with Suzanna Winton. She's awesome! If you've missed this workshop, check out Art of the Carolinas! We'll have Suzanna and several other instructors there teaching all kinds of workshops for you, so mark your calendars now and keep posted. I'll have the details up on the Web site by early July.
Enjoy this fabulous weekend!

Can you believe it's April already??

Hello there all you creative people!
We've been very busy as usual here at Jerry's Artarama.
Last weekend, Luana Luconi Winner offered a wonderful workshop here. I think the students really enjoyed the class. Luana definitely has tons of information to share and show, so thanks Luana! If you didn't get a chance to take this class, her next one is in June. Above is just some of the work completed by students in this two day workshop. Imagine what you can accomplish in her five day workshop...

Saturday, April 4th, Mike Rooney shared his talents in a free plein air painting demonstration for our customers! Thanks Mike! Your style is always refreshing! And for those of you that missed the demo, you can see Mike on line at our Free Art Lessons or you can sign up for one of his workshops we offer here at Jerry's.

Sunday, April 5th, Janie Johnson offered a free watercolor demonstration for a "standing room only" crowd and rasied $88 in a raffle for Relay for Life! Great job Janie! Thanks for helping us kick off our fundraising efforts for this cause that is near and dear to all of us! If you'd like to be a part of the Jerry's team or join in any of the activities and fundraising, please chick here.
