When it comes to perfecting the art of painting, blending, blocking and backing are best explained by Susan Elizabeth Jones, local artist who has recently been in the spotlight at Morning Pointe of Franklin.

Jones travels to teach techniques in nostalgic impressionism, and her art classes can be found in Columbia, Franklin and Spring Hill. Residents enjoyed taking instruction from Jones, as each had a fun time illustrating impressionistic flowers in vases.

As a part of the Life Enrichment Program, the assisted living community invites talented area professionals, like Jones, to lead engaging and enriching creative activities.
