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!
