CELEBRATING OUR 10TH YEAR!
HOW IT ALL BEGAN... When Linda Calvert Jacobson first joined the New Braunfels Art League (NBAL) in 2003, she saw a need for children's art classes. Soon she was teaching Saturday painting classes in a back room of the gallery and within less than a year was able to rent a studio above the gallery. In Summer of 2004, Linda offered a few weeks of Summer Art Camps for children. Each summer she expanded the program, increasing the number of weeks and themes. Over the years, several hundred children have taken her art camps in a wide range of topics ranging from drawing and painting to 3-D design and more! As the program expanded, other artists were invited to join the teaching staff to enhance the curriculum and offer an even greater number of options. Also, they continued to expand the class schedule for both Fall and Spring seasons, adding after-school and Saturday classes. Today, the Casa de Linda Summer Art Camp as well as the Fall and Spring programs are the only of its type for families in New Braunfels and surrounding communities.
Meanwhile, Linda continued to teach adult classes and invited other artists to join her. This fall, adult students can take acrylic and pastel painting classes as well as workshops in fused glass and mixed media. The adult classes are also open to teens ages 15 and up.
All classes and camps are held in the Casa de Linda studio at New Braunfels Art League Gallery.

FROM THE OWNERS...
Thank you for visiting Casa de Linda on the web. We hope to see you in person sometime soon.
Our goal is to share our love of art with students young and not so young. We've assembled a great staff and strive to offer classes and camps that are both fun and educational. As we celebrate 10 years of teaching art, we're proud of the hundreds of students who have passed through our doors!
