On Thursday, November 12, 2020 at noon a live visit via Zoom was held at the Carmel Valley, California studio of artist and illustrator, Will Bullas. Will currently has an exhibition of illustrations at the Fresno Art Museum from his illustrated children's book "M is for Masterpiece: An Art Alphabet" written by David Domeniconi. This studio visit explores all the other amazing and humorous art that Will has created over the years and gives some insight into his creative process. The only thing missing from the video is a laugh track!

On Thursday, December 10, 2020, this gifted family of artists invited FAM into their Ojai, California studios which they call The Amend Family Arts Compound. It was a great tour of the work and studios of three extraordinary artists and an opportunity to get to know them and the dynamics within the family. The recording includes a per-recorded video tour of each of the family members in their studios. FAM is happy to share it with those who missed it!

On Thursday, February 4, 2021, FAM visited the Michigan Studio of fiber artist Bonnie Peterson. This proved to be a most interesting tour of how this artist combines science and art to create her amazing and detailed quilts. Her exhibition, Another Sierra Day is currently on view at the Fresno Art Museum. For more details on Bonnie's exhibition you can check it out in our gallery guide.

On April 15, 2021 FAM took our members into the studio and home of this talented local artist. Viewers learned what drives him and how he creates his stunning, often quite large, Renaissance-inspired contemporary masterpieces in a very limited space. We welcome you to take the tour of Rick Freitas' studio!

 Special thank you to Sarah Bernard for video editing.
