Dabble & Design Group Classes and Parties

November 7 Meeting, 6:45-9pm
Artist Presenter: Carol Stoecker Presents 
"Wait! We are hosting Thanksgiving??? Quick! Fix the house!"
Carol will be talking about places in the home that could use extra attention & the possibilities of adding a textured/painted stone or brick to those areas. This stone & brick adds warmth to any area. She will be demonstrating step by step how she makes stone & brick & then how she paints it to give it a realistic look.
Carol Stoecker's Statement:
Art has come in many shapes and sizes in Stoecker's lifetime.  After earning a B.A. in Fashion Design with a minor in Fashion Illustration, she worked several very creative jobs, from District Home Economist, Clothing Designer/Pattern Maker & Illustrator, Floral Designer to full time artist.  She also volunteered in the Destination Imagination program (creative problem solving) for several years to share some of her creative skills with children.   
In 1999, Stoecker expanded her creative career by starting her own business painting murals and faux finishes in hundreds of model and residential homes. Her business grew over the years to include commercial clients like The Slalom Shop, Blue Goose, Aw Shucks, Grapes To Wine, Cowboy Up, Lantana Pediatrics, Grand Homes, Dunhill Homes, Grenadier Homes and many more in the DFW area, and residential clients in Florida, Oklahoma, California, Missouri, Illinois, Arizona and Arkansas.  
Carol Stoecker has experienced many types of paints through painting murals, textured stone, fine art, pet portraits and glass painting. She also just finished a number of painted illustrations for the first in a series of children's books "Zaboo the Great." Stoecker was voted Best of Denton County, 4 years as an artist and 1 year as a custom decorative painter. 
Meetings are held at the Patterson-Appleton Arts Center, 
400 East Hickory St, Denton, TX.
