When The Resident Gives Back

Watercolor Painting Class by Allison Svoboda

Current August resident, Allison Svoboda was kind enough to lend her knowledge and expertise to some local art advocates as well as the co-residents and staff of BCFA. This Tuesday, she opened her studio up to amateur and experienced painters alike.  It was a gift for all to experience the elements of learning, natural talent, passion, and work in a relaxed and judgement free environment where each individual could tap into their creativeness while also looking beyond the scope of their own knowledge.  BCFA is grateful for her contribution and willingness to share!
