Sorry Teachers, I didn't post what we decided about the 2 Art Shows for 2019. We have had a lack of response so for this year we are not holding them. LIZ'S Fantastic Workshop is coming up at the end of February. If you are attending please voice your opinion/s there. If you aren't going to that event, please respond here if you would like to see it happen again next year. Information about Liz's free workshop is available on Facebook at Iowa Art Teachers (and friends of). I did notice quite a few out of date emails that she sent out. Susan

The Corning Center for the Fine Arts (CCFA) invites participants to crochet poppies for an upcoming 2019 community art installation in Corning, Iowa, to mark the 100th Anniversary of the first U.S. Armistice Day commemoration held in 1919.
The goal is to have donations of at least 3,576 crocheted red poppies with black centers. Each poppy represents an Iowan who died serving in the armed forces during WWI. All poppies will be on display the weekend of Veteran’s Day 2019 around the Veteran’s Memorial in Corning’s Central Park.
Each poppy can range from 2 – 4 inches in diameter. The poppies can be mailed at any time prior to October 15, 2019 to the art center. Poppy patterns can be found on the CCFA’s website at www.corningfinearts.com or page Corning Center for the Fine Arts. You can also watch a video on how to crochet a poppy on this U tube site: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wgCU5HedYAs
There is no fee and no limit to the number of poppies that can be donated. We anticipate a large number of individual and group donations so unfortunately we can’t return the poppies. Mail poppies to or drop poppies off at Corning Center for the Fine Arts, 706 Davis Avenue, Corning, IA 50841. [email protected].
Follow the Corning Center for the Fine Arts page for continued updates and progress on These Fallen Friends Community Art Installation.
