This was the most wonderful experience in my art career.

The art of course was fantastic and the Grand opening had a Dance showcase. This art studio has combined all the arts. They will be having art lessons, Dance lessons, and Flower arrangement lessons.

I would love to have you stop by and see our wonderful collection. My art will be displayed until the end of May 2010.
