Donna and Brigitte Schlemmer, Executive Director of the Fallbrook School of the Arts
I’ve just returned from teaching a workshop for the Fallbrook School of the Arts. The town of Fallbrook is about an hour outside of San Diego, CA and prides itself on being the avocado capital of the world. It is also quite a lively arts community that was once the home of Frank Capra, who directed It’s a Wonderful Life, one of the most inspirational movies of all time.
I had a fun and exciting week at Fallbrook. It started with a painting demo on Sunday, followed by a wonderful dinner at the home of sculptor Dr. Jim Helms and his wife Victoria. Also at the dinner was San Diego artist, teacher, (and surfer!) Ken Goldman, and Brigitte Schlemmer. Dr. Helms is a talented sculptor and his beautiful works of art grace the lovely backyard and gardens of their lovely hillside home. Here are some of his amazing metal sculptures………
My friend and fellow artist and teacher, Judy Morris, was also in San Diego that week teaching a workshop for the San Diego Watercolor Society. Judy and popular San Diego artist and teacher Ken Goldman drove down to Fallbrook one evening and we enjoyed a delicious dinner accompanied by wine and some fabulous art talk.
