Artist and Villard Library patron Jeanette Wright-Claus was inspired by an episode of the "Oprah Winfrey Show" in 2000 during which Oprah encouraged viewers to follow spirit by pursuing their passion. Ms. Wright-Claus began to create portraits, floral and abstract drawings and paintings. Soon Jeanette was exhibiting her art in many Milwaukee galleries.
With "Creative Dreams" workshops as her vehicle, Wright-Claus now aims to share positive creative change with children.
If you visit soon you'll be able to see the incredible paintings and pastels the Villard neighborhood children (ages 6-12) produced at their "Creative Dreams" art workshop this fall. They're on display at the library until Thanksgiving.
