Watts Atelier 2012 Instructor and Student Show

In December we celebrated our 20th year in the education business by hosting a student show at the local Encinitas Library.  The New Library is an incredible facility with a 180 degree view of the Pacific Ocean.  We had a great turn out and the work was impressive.  We showcased instructor and student works demonstrating everything from Graphite to Gouache to Oil and Watercolor.  I hope you enjoy some of the photo and I want to again congratulate everyone who submitted and got in as well as all of the honorable mentions and award winners.  There were so many outstanding efforts.  We hope to see many of you back for next year’s show.    

Between the Holiday Party Raffle and the Library Show we raised over $3000 for the programs of the Rancho Coastal Humane Society.  Krista is working with the staff to purchase equipment and food storage bins to further the much needed programs of this local organization.  Thank you to our generous instructors who donated artwork for the raffle and to all the participants of this show.
