These workshops are the beginning of what San Antonio hopes is a tradition of workshops and classes. If successful this year, she plans to expand the program for a second consecutive year.
"I wanted to offer some workshops that haven't been offered in this area recently and to primarily make use of the beautiful space at the Owens House Education Center & Gallery," she said.
Aside from offering unique educational opportunities, the workshops are designed to create exposure for the Owens House and to garner interest in the Depot Museum's goals of offering more activities for the local community. The two buildings are operated by the same non-profit, The North Creek Railway Depot Preservation Association.
"I would like the community to become more familiar with that relationship," said San Antonio. "Even though the museum closes for the winter season, my goal as director is to offer programs at the Owens House throughout the year."
