Nearly 200 people braved the 1st snow storm of the winter season to view and admire the artwork of the 9th Annual "Drawn Together" Colored Pencil Art Show at Beech Tree Studio in the Eagle Brook neighborhood of Geneva. Patrons enjoyed over 150 pieces of colored pencil art, and were often surprised at the level of depth that can be achieved with the colored pencil medium.  

"Every year the show continues to grow, as does the level of expertise of the artists,"  says Andria Burchett, owner of Beech Tree Studio. "It is incredibly satisfying for me, as one of the instructors, to see each of these pieces slowly develop into these remarkable works of art."

The "Drawn Together" Art Show represents work created by students of four different Beech Tree Studio locations; Geneva, Montgomery, Elgin, and Shorewood.  From the moment you walk into each of the classroom studios, there is a welcome feeling of belonging.

"We work to offer sound instruction, fresh ideas, challenging advise, and sincere 
encouragement. I want this to be a fun three hours every week for our artists. Each student is taught individually within a group setting,"  explains Burchett.  "There is often a wide range of experience in each class, but we are all in there together like a one room school house. It's a good vibe." 

Class sessions run for 5 weeks, and are offered mornings, evenings, afternoons, and Saturdays depending on the location.  Registrations for the Early Spring Session, beginning mid-February, are underway.
