Here's what participants had to say about last year's Summer Studio Spectacular:

  • “I love that I was treated as an artist and art educator. Increasingly over the course of the week I became more loose with my artwork, and that was so cathartic. It was also a reminder of how my students feel when they are creating.”
  • "Gave direction but did not confine. I need to do more open-ended things so students don’t ask so many questions out of fear.”
  • “Being at Laguna Gloria enhanced the beauty of creating and appreciating art; The Jones Center is an amazing space to house and view contemporary works.”
  • “Amazing experience! Thank you! – buffet style and overview of different artists and techniques was great and helpful – expanded my knowledge base.”
