Message from Barbara

To all friends, students and newcomers stopping by, thank you for your most welcome visitation.

At this difficult juncture, my programs like many in the nation are on hold. I am not canceling the June Art Retreat at this point and will post here latest developments in that regard. I continue to be available for private journal painting sessions via Skype, and now through FaceTime and Zoom. Simply email me to arrange a time.

I invite you to follow me on Facebook. I am posting my on-going journal pages and invite anyone to share and post theirs to the page as well. Simply post a photo of your page as a “Comment” to my latest post or email me the pic and I’ll post it.

In the meantime stay safe. May music, art, dance and theater buoy your days at home.
