Art teacher opens studio in downtown Claremore

(Continued)

CLAREMORE —

“I landscaped it, put in rock flower beds and even built my own fence,” she said. “I developed it into a cottage in the woods.”
Rodriguez also uses her artistic skill as a tool for ministry.
“I think art is a beautiful medium to touch others’ lives in a way words sometimes can’t, books can’t, counseling can’t,”  she said. “I’ve seen it many times.”
Currently, Studio B’s youngest student is 5 and the oldest is 17. Six-week classes are typically held after school and on Saturdays, with some also offered in the middle of the day for home school students.
The new studio’s first art show was held Oct. 26 and was a “wonderful show of community support,” Rodriguez said. She is planning to do a special event with each class.
Due to the large amount of requests, adult classes are also in the works.
For more information about Studio B, call Barbie at (918) 527-5807.
