Your Instructor: Linda Ogram has enjoyed leading activities with others for many years in her career as an Activity Director in several healthcare facilities in Fort Wayne, IN. She has been crafting and creating throughout her life, selling her art at craft fairs for many years. Linda is focused on organic materials and has an eye for collecting beach glass, shells and stones and visioning them into works of art. She also paints with acrylics and earned a creativity ribbon for her painting at Magruder Hospital last year. During the summer months, Linda is at the beach many days designing weekly mosaics in the sand which is shared with her Facebook followers. When she’s not creating, she’s enjoying the water and boating with her husband.
Linda’s philosophy: I love creating and helping people envision how natural materials can be transformed into works of art. It’s easy to learn what to do as I provide the supplies and share examples of how to use the materials to create your own designs. It’s so fun to see how students use their imagination and creativity to create a unique piece they can enjoy and display for many years to come.
