Juanita Niemeyer's painting class.

First Friday Fun Fest will be celebrated at Tehachapi Treasure Trove on Friday, Jan. 4, from 5 to 8 p.m. January's First Friday will be a celebration of the Treasure Trove's creative teachers and students. Students from our Paint Pour, Mixed Media and Painting classes will be displaying their work along with our talented teachers, Lucinda Thomas, Judith Campanaro and Juanita Niemeyer. Additional classes include fiber arts, jewelry making, metal working, fused glass and more.

Many of our teachers have years of experience in teaching their crafts. Juanita Niemeyer, who teaches painting on Wednesday mornings, has been teaching art for 50 years. Many of her regular students are accomplished artists looking for new ideas and ways to use various media. A recognized watercolor artist in the Tehachapi community, Nancy Waldron, has been painting a variety of subjects for 30 years. Christi Friesen has written books on polymer clay projects and teaches classes around the world. We sometimes have difficulty scheduling classes here in her hometown. Lucinda Thomas, who teaches drawing, paint pour and other media, has been teaching many types of art for many years. Lucinda is currently teaching paint pour on Sunday afternoons and paint night on second Saturdays. Judith Campanaro has also been teaching for many years and specializes in mixed media, art journaling and kid's classes. Judith also paints faces for special occasions and at the Farmers Market. Karen Stevens teaches all varieties of fabric arts including knitting, crocheting, tatting and embroidery. Unfortunately, Karen broke her wrist over Thanksgiving weekend but we're betting she will be back teaching in January. Jewelry and metal working classes are offered by Dawn Callahan and Steve Headrick. Dream catchers and loom bead weaving are specialties of Susanna Monette. Leila Kleiman has been teaching fused glass for a number of years. Come meet the students and teachers and see the wonderful work they have created.
