Come renew your love for art!

Terry Waldron

We are so honored to have Terry Waldron - talented quilt fabric artist, teacher, & author at Calico Mermaid on November 15!


Sharing her love of art & empowering others to create is very important to Terry. She says, "Because I was a long-time, successful high school art teacher, this is a subject that is very close to my heart. Remember the fun you had making art when you were in kindergarten? 
Where did that joy go?"


Ms. Waldron's work has been included in the invitational Dinner@8 Exhibition every year since it's inception. This juried, traveling show features only 30 pieces from artists from all over the world.

The class has already started to fill up, so if you're interested, come in to reserve your space soon.
You can read more about her here:
