C.Andrews Studio August events and classes

Welcome Everyone!

I hope you are all having a great summer.  As most of you already know I have been a bit preoccupied with this whole house selling thing.  Keeping the house spotless all the time and ready to show is absolute murder.  As you can imagine with two dogs keeping things clean keeps me busy.  However I finally found a little time to post the Studio schedule for the month and to let you all know about a couple of other events that I am going to be attending as an artist.

Above you can view the August calendar.  If you click on the image you get a larger view.  Here are the class details and samples below.
