“A true artist is not one who is inspired, but one who inspires others.” —Salvador Dali
Last month’s Art ‘Xtravaganza was an amazing one, full of so many great artists, performers, musicians, and volunteers to help make it happen. I’m so thankful that I was able to be a part of it, and with my friend Kevin Forrester Coleman, as a duo art installation. Our room was glowing and so magical, that everyone was in awe! Hopefully, we can do this again next year as a part of Allied Arts of Whatcom County.
Wait, there’s more! In this newsletter, you’ll see that there’s some exciting art events happening in November – art classes, art events, free kids art, and several art shows!

Break out your creativity and have fun making a set of 4-6 holiday ornaments in this ceramic workshop! Learn how to use molds to make shapes such as stars and hearts, or learn how to create your own shape out of clay, applying underglaze to add a dash of color and shine. Your ornaments will be stained and fired in the kiln, ready for pickup November 25--just in time for the winter holidays and decorations or handmade gifts. Please bring sketch paper, pencil, eraser, and a ruler to class. All other materials included.
