You can be an artist. Willow Rosales will show you how

February 27, 2013

Art isn’t just for children or aspiring Monet types. Colville resident Willow Rosales shares her skills as print maker and mixed media talent in non-credit classes at Spokane Community College’s Colville Center. A 2005 graduate of Fairhaven College in Bellingham, Rosales taught printmaking workshops at the college until 2010. She came back to Stevens County a couple of years ago with her husband and fellow artist, Chris, to be closer to family (her parents own Quillisascut Farms in Rice).
Tell us about the non-credit classes you will be teaching.
