Due to popular demand, we are rolling out evening classes in August for Watercolor & Drawing earlier than planned! rtrail-collective-edge-1

We'd like to introduce you to Jeff, our expert illustrator, who recently returned to the US following his 2 year commitment to the Peace Corps upon graduation with a MFA in Illustration from the Savannah College of Art and Design in Georgia. Jeff is the talented artist we commissioned to create our "trio of NWI talent" in charcoal / color pastels that hangs on our main entry wall.
