About the Instructors:

Ginny Piech Street:
"I love collage because it is rich in process and full of the unpredictable." - Ginny I grew up in Indiana and earned a BFA at Murray State University in Kentucky. From there I lived in the South Carolina Low Country and tropical, festive Key West. Each of these places has influenced my art perspective. This is what I believe about art. There are no mistakes. There are no rules. And the process of creating art is most important. Color is also important, but black and white is dramatic. This perspective is reflected in my whimsical, imaginative collages and sculptures. My reoccurring characters, often with funny and quirky titles, allow your thought to create their own story. Sometimes surprising, always colorful, my artwork promises to delight. Anita Prentice “Like Diego, Pablo and Salvador, I fully intend to paint the town.” -

Anita Prentice:
From an early age, Anita displayed the artist’s demeanor, saturating her earlier and college years with visual and performing art experiences. She attended Pima College in Tuscon and Columbia College in Chicago. Ten years of world travel allowed her to explore the many dimensions of art and architecture that surround us all. She has lived in St. Lucie County for 25 years. Anita’s art, like her life is an eclectic collection of mediums and subject matter. Her creations encompass exotic to traditional to preposterous. Her current work incorporates frescoed mosaics, utilizing stained glass. These monumental pieces give the viewer the impression that Anita truly is creating the antiquities of tomorrow. Attaching small tesserae to a larger surface is a centuries old artistic technique. Depending on the materials used, this technique has produced works of art that are especially suited to surviving centuries of weather and abuse. Mosaics made of glass have survived generations, since the invention of glass. The unique technique Anita brings to her work is incorporating paint, rubbing pigment into the grout creating a more painterly mosaic, called “Frescoed Mosaics”. Award winning artist, Anita was a member and past chair of the St. Lucie County Cultural Affairs Council and Art in Public Places. Among her achievements are creating over a hundred mosaic benches throughout the Treasure Coast. She was invited to be in the WOW Show 2 and 3, which are county wide sculpture shows featuring many sculptors.

Materials to bring to class:

You are encouraged to bring one or two pieces of pvc pipe (at least 4' long and at least 1.5" in diameter) to also paint.

If you have any questions call Anita 465-3170 or Ginny at 772-532-2870

About the Instructor:
I've loved art all my life and if I had a pen or pencil in my hand, something was going to be drawn! I wanted to learn to paint though, and was lucky to find a wonderful instructor over fifteen years ago who shared his knowledge of academic painting. Since then, I have been perfecting my technique - after all those years there is always something new to learn. I love realism and that is my speciality, but I still like to go from one end of the spectrum to the other with it. That is, my work ranges from super detailed trompe l'oeil to more loose and colorful paintings; all the while exploring what paint can do and honing my skills. I enjoy painting just about anything, from animals to still life; each subject has its own set of challenges and I learn from them all. My work has been exhibited in local and national galleries and has won the approval of both my peers and jurors. Of course the most exciting thing is when someone sees my work and it moves them in some way.... well, it doesn't get any better than that! Contact George at 772 460 0894 or glovefl@msn.com for any questions regarding this class. Preregistration required: Call 772-466-1010
