gail’s STUDENT NEWS
>Susan Roach won a second place ribbon at the Jackson-Butts County Council for the Arts, Art Show, Painting Division, which took place during the September 2016 Butts County Fair. Special congratulations go out to Susan. Especially when we realize that Susan only began painting August 2015. All her adult life Susan had been in education. Her last position was as a “Mathematics Instructional Coach”, meaning she was a teacher of math teachers. Upon retirement Susan learned that, after all, there was life on the Right Side of her Brain!
>Nancy Scroggs also had an entry in the Jackson-Butts County Council for the Arts, Art Show, Painting Division. This was also a milestone for Nancy as she is also new to watercolor painting. This was a big step for Nancy and “Hats Off” to her. Nancy’s piece was well received at the shows’ opening reception.
>Special Note: gail’s Plaza Workshop in Nashville, December 2, 3 and 4, 2016 was full with her maximum of 20 students and it had a waiting list. Don’t miss out in April. Read on!
Friday, Saturday and Sunday, April 28, 29 and 30, 2017 will give you two very special opportunities. The first opportunity: Those are the dates that gail will be teaching her next watercolor workshop at Plaza Artists Materials in Nashville, Tennessee. gail has taught many classes and workshops at Plaza. Being one of the largest art supply store in the southeast it is a great place to shop for art supplies. Having two large rooms for teaching, it is an outstanding place for workshops. These two areas can each accommodate 20 art students very nicely.
The exact details of the Workshop, techniques taught, etc will be worked out with those in the December 2-4 Plaza Workshop. gail will teach what those would like her to offer. FYI: The April 28, 29 and 30, 2017 Workshop already has one person signed up to attend. Details of the April Workshop will be in the next Student Newsletter, due to be mailed in middle February. The cost for the three days is $175.00. For questions and to register call gail or Ken at 678-603-1502. Grab your art buddies and make a weekend of fun and fellowship with your pals.
The second opportunity: Plan to go early to the workshop or stay after and visit Nashville and Middle Tennessee. It is a great area to sightsee and shop. So much civil war history in the area. Also Nashville is called the Athens of the South and for good reason. In Centennial Park stands a full-scale replica of the Parthenon in Athens, Greece. Nashville is also called “Music City U.S.A.” and again for good reason. So much history of Country Music is alive and well in Nashville. Take a tour of the original “Grand Ole Opry House, Mother Church of Country Music”. Visit “Music Row”. Tour the “Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum”. Attend the “Grand Ole Opry”.
20 miles south of Nashville is the town of Franklin. For 16 years gail and Ken lived just about a mile from the town square. Franklin is a beautiful, historic community with 19th century charm and a great old world Main Street. Franklin’s historic/civic leadership has managed to keep downtown Franklin as it was. A very worthy area to visit with much Civil War History. For example, The deadly Battle of Franklin was fought here on November 30, 1864. Trace its steps, learn its history.
Shopping: Downtown Nashville, Brentwood and Franklin: Also Opry Mills Regional Shopping Mall is next to the world famous Gaylord Opryland Resort and is 12 miles from downtown Nashville. A discount Mall with lots and lots of great shopping. The Gaylord Opryland Resort itself is a show place. It is well worth a walk through. The Galleria Regional Shopping Mall, Brentwood, is six miles from downtown Franklin and is also a great place to shop. It rivals Opry Mills in size and retail shops.
