Hello, Hesperia! This month we are celebrating Easter and I hope you all had a wonderful day.


The Hesperia Recreation and Park District offers some great classes and I decided to visit one of them. Well, I went to the Beginning Watercolor class taught by Jacqueline Snyder. It is held at 6 p.m. every Thursday at Lime Street Park Community Center. The class lasts for one hour and I was very impressed with it.


Mrs. Snyder said that beginning to advanced students can attend. Most of the students were working on different projects.


"I'm the eighth generation in my family from California," Snyder told me. "I received my degree at U.C. Santa Barbara. I taught at U.C. Irvine.


"I went to Italy and received my masters and then I came back to teach. And now, here I am at Hesperia Recreation and Parks."


Mrs. Snyder told me every artist is inspired by another artist.


While lecturing the students she mentioned the "horizon line" quite a lot. There is a horizon line in every picture. I never thought of that. Now I'm paying more attention to pictures just to see that.


I was there for 45 minutes and took pictures. I know you will enjoy going to the class. I will be visiting other classes every few months and will pass on my experience to you. We are very lucky to have these classes. If you have questions, call the district office at 760-244-5488.


Happy Easter and see you next month.


Love, Charlene
