Barbara taught art for the Miami-Dade County Public School System for 20 years at Naranja Elementary School , and five years at night at Southridge and South Dade High Schools . She graduated with a BA in Commercial Art and Advertising from the University of Miami , where the love of lettering first attracted her interest. Later while taking courses at FIU in art education for her Master's and Specialist Level Degrees, she had the opportunity to take Calligraphy classes from a Master Calligrapher, and also from Dr. Clem Pennington, Head of the Art Education Dept. at FIU.
Homestead Art Club meetings are free and open to the public, so bring your family and friends. If you can bring a snack, that would be great, too.
Call or email Mary Dee if you've got a question about, or a suggestion for future programs.
Plan ahead: Anne Gorden-Vega has graciously agreed to have a program on tile painting on August 20!
