Francesca DeCaire (studio #216) has black wooden box full of flamework beads for $3 each. The regular price range of the beads when they are not in the box can be anywhere from $3–$25, heck, sometimes even more. Don’t miss the first dig, Wednesday July 2, 12–4pm. Click to see the full schedule here.
“Why would I put a bead that is worth $25 in a box marked $3? The answer is simple really. The bead is lonely. It’s been sitting in my drawer waiting for me to do something with it for too long. It’s just a simple way of letting go. The box is brimming to the top! I’ve included dozens of owls.
So anyhow I’m really in the hopes that a few of you will show up for this special. There is no better sound than the gentle sifting of beads that have been in the dark for too long.”
Brian O’Neill (studio #345) has only two openings left for his workshop at The Rochester Art Club “Core Drawing Techniques in Realism” July 16-20 in the RAC studios. This is an exciting opportunity to gain insight into the fundamental skills of representational drawing and learn the very same exercises practiced by the apprentices of The Ani Art Academy, which O’Neill is a graduate of.

Brian will begin to offer workshops and private lessons in his studio #345 starting this summer.
