FLOOD INSURANCE: In the event of a flood, are you and your family adequately prepared? There is a 30-day waiting period for new flood insurance policies to take effect once they are purchased. Floodplain residents should consider buying flood insurance if you think your home is potentially vulnerable. Historically, about one-third of all flood insurance claims occur outside of the mapped regulatory floodplain area (for 100 year floods). A less expensive preferred risk policy is available for these properties. For more information about flood insurance, contact your insurance agent or visit www.floodsmart.gov for more information.

REGISTRATION DEADLINE "Texture, Color, Feeling" A Jan Sitts Workshop. Register by June 10th. Wednesday - Saturday, 9:30 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. July 10 - 13. (1hr lunch) Jan's experience and enthusiasm create an atmosphere of fun and spontaneity inspiring new directions and discovery through innovative combinations of design and materials. By combining aggressive textures and unusual mediums with various "raw" materials in the abstract painting we get surprising results. The layering method yields a magnetism that is particular to mixed media. Many techniques, materials, compositions and emotions play off each other in creating the work. Part of the adventure is not knowing where you are going until you get there! Students will learn to let go of painting habits and gain the knowledge of layering textures, colors and feelings while executing shapes utilizing a structure of positive and negative space. Minimum 9 students to run. Instructor: Jan Sitts.
