About the Instructor:  Sally Towers-Sybblis is an artist and art teacher in Red Deer, Alberta. Her work has been featured in various magazines and she had co-authored and designed her own book, “The Circle Club” A Journey of Hope and Healing, a book that involves a healing journey that takes place through the growth of a garden rose. Sally’s vibrant paintings and photographs are featured throughout the book. Sally works in all types of media because her mind needs to be continually challenged with new ideas and techniques. Lately, she has taken to paper media and calligraphy as a form of expression. Creating vibrant and textured surface designs on paper is very fulfilling for her. Sally teaches classes on a regular basis. She believes that sharing her techniques gives others that same sense of gratification and expression that she receives from creating.
