STIMULATE . EDUCATE . NURTURE

A Community Resource for the Coachella Valley   

We regret to inform members of the sad death of Jim Chamberlain a long time member of the DAC and regular exhibitor at our shows.

We regret to inform members of the sad death of Bob Miller, one of our jewelers and a member since 2015.

Bob Miller was a desert resident since 1996 having retired from a catering business in Washington. He had been designing jewelry since 2006 and was a regular exhibitor at the Desert Art Center. He focused on the steampunk genre working with repurposed items and in particular clock and watch parts which he fashioned into wearable art.

His unique art and personality will be missed at the DAC.

VOLUNTEER OF THE MONTH

JESSICA SCHIFFMAN


The Desert Art Center is pleased to announce that Jessica Schiffman is our Volunteer of the Month. Jessica works on the Middle School Art Project, a program which provides hands-on art instruction to local middle school students, exposing them to skills and media they would not otherwise experience.

Her interest in art education began when she was a student in the Bay Area public schools. As early as she can remember, art was what she yearned for, yet there were no art classes available. She attended the San Francisco Art Institute where there was practically no instruction, but years later Jessica went back to school to fill the gaps in her education. As a result she's passionate about teaching art.

Jessica has been a professional artist most of her life, having illustrated children’s books and painted murals, figurative paintings, plein-air and landscapes. She has taught workshops and classes at the Idyllwild Arts Academy for more than ten years and teaches drawing and painting at the Desert Art Center.

While in the gallery, take a moment to study her wonderful works of art.
