Oversized Ornament Class with Guest Artist: Dawn Ashby
I'm SO excited to announce this upcoming class! Join us at Total Bliss as we (with the help of local artist, Dawn Ashby) create these amazing painted ornaments!
Here's a bit more about Dawn...
Dawn Ashby Caldwell is a local artist in Greensboro.She initially came to the area when she attended Greensboro College and received her degree in Fine Arts. Through Dawn’s creativity and spirit, she has forged a successful career in the arts for the last twenty eight years.
She opened New Dawning Playhouse in downtown Greensboro from 1994 –2004, a gift shop and art gallery which also included a studio and classes for children and adults. There she sold her own artwork, including pottery, paintings, decorative furniture, mosaic pieces and more. Her style is colorful, expressive and above all whimsical. Most of her pieces are easily recognizable by her positive words and signature handwriting.
She closed New Dawning after starting a family. A few years later she sought to continue her art through another venue. She began doing workshops for individuals with disabilities from LIFESPAN Inc. This was a new opportunity for her and one that she found very rewarding. Within a few short years she was promoted to LIFESPAN Director of Art. Combining her love of art, teaching and her strong business sense this was a perfect fit.
Although her free time is limited, she continues to feed her creative soul with her own original works of art and custom pieces. She is happily married, and is raising her son. In her spare time she enjoys working in her garden creating, which is her new blank canvas. One of Dawn’s favorite quotes and one that she includes in many pieces of her own art is “Every day is a Journey, to where you want to be and who you are becoming.” This quote sums up her belief in life and where it can lead you.
We are so excited for this class and showcasing Dawn's creativity! To sign up, call or visit the store. Please note that the class fee includes one ornament shape of your choosing and paint; ribbon, etc is not included.
