Classes have a new location

Dragon Art is teaming up with the Florence, Oregon's art community to start classes back up. After closing the store on Highway 101 we took a brief break from teaching art, to participate in local theater and take classes ourselves. With Our Town ending this weekend-DON'T MISS IT and Once upon a mattress happening April 10-12th, We are ready to restart our classes. Look for the new calendar later today. In the mean time, if you have an opinion about which classes or events you want to participate in, let us know. We have been practicing and taking classes ourselves, to get ready for you.

Our teachers:

Karylynn Keppol is a Junior at the Pacific Northwest College of Art in Portland and is a certified Henna Artist. She is an illustration major, but specializes in creatures and paper art. Her work can often be seen in local shows at the Florence Event Center, and on local windows. You can view her face book page: Creations and Illustrations by Kary Keppol.

Lyndsey Keppol is a Junior at Siuslaw High School, She often teaches crafts and sewing to our youngest students. She wants to be a Disney Princess when she grows up, and looks like Rapunzel. The Fairy and Henna camps are her favorites.

Kassy Keppol is a teacher in Florence, an Oregon Writing Project Teacher Consultant, and a certified Henna Artist. She has recently gone back to school in the summers to get a second Masters in Writing and Illustrating Children's books. After this summer, she will have a certification in children's book illustration from Hollins University in Virginia. She is a member of the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators and is currently participating in the 12 by 12 challenge. Growing up in a very crafty family, she dabbles in all kinds of arts and crafts. Lately, she is fascinated by dolls and doll houses but, anything with glitter will catch her eye.
