Bring a pencil, tape measure, scissors(pruning shears work best), small towel and apron if you like. I will be bringing the water buckets, spray bottles, tools and extra towels. I am going to be teaching a small traditional basket, called the Arrow Twill weave, so the material cost will be only $7.00. It is 4″h x 6w x 6″d. I will give them a choice on the color accent of Teal or  purple or red and I will have the necessary beads for the embellishment.

BBetty Carr artetty Carr is emerging as one of the foremost  painters of the southwest. Her use of color, light and shade accentuate her subject matter while showing her love of nature and its forms

Betty has recently been selected as a master painter in the” American Impressionist Society”(AISM). She is also a signature member of “APAP”, Arizona Plein Air Painters Association.

Following years of instructing art in Colorado and California and developing her distinctive painting style, Betty and artist husband decided to follow the sun to the southwest where color and light are ever present. Betty, in discussing her painting style; impressionism, enthusiastic brushwork and the use of light and dark, shows the enthusiasm and spontaneity of getting the scene in her hands.

“What catches my eye is the effect light has on form in unique situations whether fleeting, spilling over, striking, etc. I challenge myself in capturing its dramatic and/or subtle effects. I strive for confident enthusiastic brushwork, the maximizing of color’s value and intensity range and a fresh painterly approach, the result appearing effortless” -Betty Carr
