Dianne Koehler: community activist, library founder, artist, gardener, teacher
I have been painting for over 25 years, mostly in acrylics and other non-oil media. I have taught adults and kids as I love sharing my love of art with others. I have owned and operated Wooden it be Wonderful for over 25 years, making and painting all types of items. I teach a weekly arts & crafts class for families at the Wells Branch Library, and occasional classes for adults.
I founded the Wells Branch Community Library, served as board president for 10 years, and completed my 6th and last term of elected office in 2010 to have a little more time in my life.
I worked with several others to create an active home gardening group in the community and maintain a blog for this and my own gardening. I harvest rainwater and have many barrels to store the water and use it in my vegetable garden. I am now involved in an effort to bring gardens to the students at Wells Branch Elementary teaching one afternoon each week in the garden program.
I am excited to offer Art mini-camps in Wells Branch again this summer. What a great time we had. Here are some videos. Also take a look at the arts blog for more pictures and details. Below are videos of volcanic eruptions, colloid painting, and tie dying.
Take a look at some of the artistic things I am doing by clicking on the links. Instructions for the fall raffia scarecrow are below. Recipies for several of the projects from camp are on the Arts & Crafts blog below.
