"Thank You to everyone at Foothills Art Center for the generous scholarship for this past weeks art camp for my daughter, Emery. As a mother in full-time nursing school it was such a blessing! She has absolutely loved this camp and has been in her happiest of places everyday when I pick her up from camp."
"I just wanted to let you know that I've paid for the extension portion for him so he can stay all day at art camp today through Thursday. It says a lot about your program that he requested and sort of insisted on staying the whole day, remembering how much fun he had last year (and he's normally a homebody!), so thank you very much for all you and your staff do for the kids!
"Mom and I had such a good time in class!! Who knew working in wax would be so easy and fun. Thanks for the great class offerings and encaustic memories."
"Meet Lucy & Allana, my new artist friends. I left my lab to grab lunch, when I found these two lovely ladies drawing near my dream house. I stopped by and started conversation with them. Guess what! They are part of Foothills Art Center. They asked me whether I have any drawing skill. My answer was "I wish". They reply, but you are such a sweet young lady with beautiful mind and that's why you are part of School of Mines. What a compliment! So proud!! Well, my reply was: everyone is gifted. We are different from each other but we all are special in particular way. Don't try to be a copy of someone, because you are already special. Be yourself! Well, they invited me to a night event at Foothills. They said there are a couple of young artists I should meet. I am really excited."
"I wanted to share feedback on my experience as a first time participant in the Plein Air event for ArtsWeek. As a professional working artist, I enjoyed getting out to meet people while painting on locations throughout Golden. I embraced the opportunity to share my processes with all ages who came by to "see what she is doing", to promote myself, and the competition reception. During 4 days, I fell in LOVE with Golden and all its beautiful scenery in and around the town, completing 7 paintings in 3.5 days! I learned that Open Studios is a high functioning group of fabulous dedicated artists. The icing on the cake was winning Best of Show, selling the winning painting as well as 2 others through meeting patrons on the street. Successful events like this help me continue with my profession. So, I appreciate all the support for ARTISTS that underlie the success of Foothills, and am privileged to be a member to cultivate, educate, and promote the arts. Thank you for all your support!"
