CEDARBURG, WI (August 22, 2018):  Jeanne Kollmeyer has been making art for several decades and teaching children’s classes for the past ten years in the Milwaukee area. She currently works as an instructor at several art centers in Southeast Wisconsin, including the CCC and Sharon Lynn Wilson Center for the Arts in Brookfield. She began her art career as a photographer, hand coloring her black and white pictures. Her art reflects her love of the natural world and food. She paints mainly from her photographs. She enjoys being a lifetime learner and continues to take local art classes. She loves painting with bright vibrant colors and is having fun painting fruits, flowers, plants and desserts. Recently, she ventured down the path into plein air painting!

Kollmeyer began teaching children’s art classes for the Cedarburg Cultural Center last year and her classes have been a huge success.

In fact, there are seats still open for her upcoming family workshop, Folk Art Landscapes being held Saturday, Sept 22, 10am-noon. This is a family drop-in workshop for children ages 4-9. These fun landscapes are inspired by Heather Galler’s folk art paintings. Families will have fun using lines, patterns, and shapes to create their own landscape. All supplies included. $24 CCC Members/ $29 Non-Members. Additional siblings receive price break and pay only $14 each. Register now at cedarburgculturalcenter.org or by calling 262.375.3676.
