It is so easy to just snap a picture and store it on your phone or iPad. But there is another way to capture a time and place that will cement it into your memory and bring it back to your mind with all the smells, sounds, and visuals that a camera can’t capture. In a series of classes taught on Zoom, Sherry Meidell will help you capture your life in a sketchbook while living it.

Meidell has worked as a professional artist for more than 45 years, starting her career as a graphic designer, continuing as an illustrator for children’s books and magazines, and painting watercolors that have been shown and won awards in regional and national exhibits. She is a signature member of the National Watercolor Society, Utah Watercolor Society (UWS), and the Western Federation of Watercolor Societies. She is currently the President of the Utah Watercolor Society. She has received numerous awards, including best of show at the UWS Spring Exhibition 2015 and the Entrada Institute’s top award at the 2014 Arts and the Park plein air competition at Capitol Reef National Park.

Meidell has taught watercolor classes and, over the past decade, has presented multiple workshops and classes on children’s book writing and illustrating, art principles, the use of a sketch book to improve skill and confidence, and watercolor painting and technique. For more information about Sherry, here is a link to her blog: sherrymeidell.wordpress.com

Mandy Danzig will conduct a six-session online class in playing the ukulele. Danzig plays almost anything with strings, and during her shows, she flows effortlessly from one instrument to another, weaving in and out of songs with her effervescent storytelling. Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, she has performed a live show every weekday morning on Facebook.

Love, light, and laughter are at the heart of Danzig’s music. Her years working as a licensed therapist and activist have left her with a deep dedication to social justice, leading her to write lyrics and melodies that one critic described as “songs that appeal to the heart and mind as well as the ear” (Greg Harness, RootsWorld magazine).

Danzig is the recipient of a bouquet of awards for her instrumental prowess. A member of the duo Otter Creek, her song “The Fiddle Preacher” reached the top 10 on the Folk DJ charts. She has performed with the Salt Lake Choral Artists, the Southern Nevada Musical Arts Society, and the Utopia Early Music Ensemble in state premiers and programs that blend both classical and folk traditions. In collaboration with Wendy Lowder, her arrangement and performance were on TLC's “Sister Wives.” She is on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter as MandyLynnDanzig and can be found online at www.MandyLynnDanzig.com.

“The Entrada Institute is the brainchild of thoughtful, generous, visionary people. Entrada fosters life-affirming interconnections between nature and the arts reminiscent of Friedrich Schelling’s nature is visible spirit, spirit is invisible nature.”

– Scott Abbott, Ph.D

“I see firsthand the value it provides to the community, its residents, and visitors from all corners of the world. Entrada contributes to increasing our appreciation of the natural world and its inhabitants. It also provides a fascinating slate of programs and classes that are open to all. Entrada adds immeasurably to the fabric of this area and deserves our support.”

– Annie Holt, co-owner of The Old House at Center and Main in Torrey

“There are cliff and buttes, mountains and mesas, canyons and valleys, domes and pinnacles, rounded slopes and numberless smaller forms, all painted in a rainbow spectrum of glorious hues, sculptured into … patterns that astonish with strange and endless diversity.”

– Ward Roylance, co-founder, Entrada Institute

“What impressed me about Entrada was honoring and celebrating both our natural and cultural legacies at the local level and along the Colorado Plateau. The Entrada Institute helps protect and preserve the heritage of Wayne County, State of Utah, and Colorado Plateau. Entrada, you are the role model for the future.”

– Rosemary Sucec, Cultural Anthropologist, National Park Service
