A NEW YEAR BEGINS!
It is time to select a slate of officers for the Franklin County Arts Guild for the 2019-2020 year. Officers will take office in July and will preside at the first general membership meeting on July 23rd. It is important that you participate in this process. This is the first time we are trying an online process. But to be valid we must have good participation.
The slate of officers was chosen and approved by the nomination committee. We also solicited nomination from the general membership. The slate is as follows:
President: Patty Priest
Vice President: multi individuals appointed by president for specific tasks
Secretary: Margie Gallagher
Treasurer: Denise Miller
Public Relations: Pat Richards
Approval of this slate of officers needs to be completed by June 30th, midnight. You will receive a Survey Monkey link by email within the next few days. You can log onto the Survey Monkey site by clicking on the link and then you just need to select approve or not approve. Please so this as soon as possible after you get the email.

Kids Art Camp
There is something new and exciting happening at the Artisan Depot in Cowan, TN this summer!
The Franklin County Arts Guild is hosting a summer Art Camp for Kids the week of June 24-28, 2019 and there are still spots available!
This camp is geared towards kids ages 8-12 who are interested in getting their creative juices flowing and having fun! The theme for the week is Natural World, Natural Me. Campers will develop observation and imagination skills while learning art techniques that include papier-mache, drawing, painting, printing, mixed media and weaving. To celebrate our time together at camp there will be a Camper Art Show on the last day for families and friends to come support the kids and see their work.
Two local artist/art educators will be leading this camp, Pippa Browne and Tanya Ingvoldstad Otero.
Pippa Browne is a Fine Artist who has exhibited paintings nationally and internationally for the last 30 years. She taught Art to Middle and High schoolers in Zimbabwe for 10 years and, since coming to the USA, she has designed and lead creativity workshops for adults and young people at schools, libraries, galleries and festivals.
Tanya Ingvoldstad Otero is a creative artist who has taught art to young children through adults in formal classes, workshops and camps over the past 20 yrs. In addition to having fun, her desire is to encourage kids to find joy and meaning in their own creative expression.
Our hope is to connect with area youth and families and encourage art and creative expression in our community! Please help us share this information!
Camp details are as follows:
