Great to see Art History & Visual Studies alumna Andrea Soos as the featured artist in this story about the annual Art Gallery Paint-In! This is her seventh time participating in the Paint-In, but after running her own children’s art school Poppet Creative for a number of years, the Fernwood artist now plans to become a full-time artist. “Teaching has been great and brought me lots of joy and amazing friends, and great personal growth,” she says. “But now it’s time to focus and do it for myself.” http://www.timescolonist.com/entertainment/for-saturday-s-art-gallery-paint-in-this-artist-is-going-in-a-different-direction-1.23372831

For Andrea Soos, the TD Art Gallery Paint-In this Saturday is a first step in her new role as an artist. After studying art education and art history, teaching art for about 20 years and founding the art website Poppet Creative, the Fernwood woman hopes to create and sell her own art.
