A New Hello! OOAK is alive and well ;)

Hello everyone, I am excited to introduce myself to you!  My name is Leah Tees and I have been helping Shelley Graham Turner at OOAK Artisan Showcase.  I am here today to tell you what we have been up to!  Some very exciting things are happening at OOAK.

First, Shelley has been very busy working on the new studio space in Utica, New York.  There is painting and furniture placing going on there like crazy, lol.

Shelley has also been busy planning art workshops!  

OOAK Workshop Color Crush 2017

In March she held a three-day workshop in Syracuse, NY.  The workshop was taught by fun artists Birgit Koopsen, from the Netherlands, and Nathalie Kalbach, from New Jersey :)  Both of these ladies create wonderfully colorful pieces of art.

Shelley's granddaughter Tori showed up on the last day to take some wonderful pics of all the great artwork being created :)

Another fun workshop is in the works for July, featuring Elizabeth St. Hilaire from Paper Paintings.  Elizabeth will be instructing participants on collages! She does such beautiful work, I have been perusing her website!  I am very much looking forward to seeing the pictures from that workshop as well!
