Terri L. Regotti

Acrylic, Pastel, Color Pencil, Mix Media

Terri is an award winning artist and teacher whose work has been collected for as long as she has taught (over 30 years). Her students have ranged in age from 3 to 93! Terri has taught in the public and private school of Florida where she lived until 2016. She is thrilled to be in the beautiful Rogue Valley. Terri currently teacher at RCC through the Department of Community Education. She regularly offers private art lessons and professional critiques. Terri is an extremely versatile artist who works in mixed media, acrylic, watercolor, pastels, color pencils, clay, ect. She was raised in Pennsylvania and in 1984 she graduated from out nation's number one visual art school, the Rhode Island School of Design. Taking a class with Terri means that one will be responsible for conceptual thinking and applying one's own creativity. Terri's strengths include: patience, guidance, kindness, showing students how she uses a medium and critiquing which she views as one of the most important aspects of the art process. Terri is very happy to teach all that she knows to students at The Artist Attic. If you have an idea for a class, inquire, as she probably can teach it! Terri's classes will be on-going and you can come to a class anytime! All levels are welcome.

Acrylic: As a professional artist, I will teach you all that I know! Since all students will be at different levels, I want to make sure that students have an understanding of color theory. So if you have not ever made a color wheel, that will be a basic beginning project. I want to make sure that students understand the acrylic medium, so exploration of acrylics will happen with teacher assigned projects. Students May also begin painting their own ideas and subject matter which they are interested in and I am there to help guide through critique and/or demonstration. More information including class dates, contact info, and supply lists can be found [Insert Link to Acrylic Flyer].

Pastels & Colored Pencil: We are working with vibrant color in three different mediums: oil pastel, chalk pastel and color pencil. Color theory techniques will be taught with all three mediums. Students may choose to try all mediums or focus on one. Students may explore their own subject matter or chose to have teacher assigned projects and subject matter. More information including class dates, contact info, and supply lists can be found [Insert Link to Pastels/Color Pencil Flyer].

Paper-Mache/Mixed Media: Paper- Mache (French, "for chewed the paper") is an extremely versatile medium in which you can create practically anything. In fact, the French, as early as the 1600's, were making furniture out of it. Because it is a glue and paper technique, collage and/or mixed media can also be explored on a 2-D surface in this class. I will teach students about the history of the medium and show you the steps for creating a 2-D and/or 3-D project of your choosing. More information including class dates, contact info, and supply lists can be found [Insert Link to Paper Mache/Mixed media Flyer].

All Classes are on-going, so you may jump in at any time!

Copic Markers

Like many crafters today, Marti Arrell tried many different mediums until she found just the right fit. 

Throughout her life she has always been involved with some kind of craft.  As a child, she started with embroidery, then moved on to crochet and knitting when she got married.  From there, she got into crewel embroidery and started dabbling in quilting while attending college.  She progressed to tole and china painting when her girls were little, and eventually went back to quilting when her smallest started school full time.  Marti also started the Azalea Quilters Guild in Brookings, which is still going strong today.  After all the many different crafts Marti had been involved in, it wasn’t until she picked up a rubber stamp for the first time that she found her true love – card making and ATC’s.  She took that passion and bought a rubber stamp and scrapbooking store, Creating Lasting Memories, in Brookings.  She owned the shop for 6 ½ years and then sold it back to the original owner, who still has the business to this day.

After moving to Medford several years ago, Marti found she really missed the companionship of fellow crafters and decided to get back into teaching.  She is currently teaching Introduction to Copics, which will be a beginning class as well as a refresher course for those who have previously attended a beginning class.  Unlike most beginning Copic classes taught, she will not only introduce the student to the markers, but then immediately guide them in creating their first Copic colored card.  She hopes to continue to teach a Copic card every month.  Marti has her Standard and Intermediate Copic Certification certificates, as well as her certificates from Copic Workshops from 2013 and 2014. 


Kristen has been creating since the beginning of time – (or so it seems) From east to west, north to south; gluing, coloring, cutting stamping, stitching, baking, throwing words, ideas, paper, pieces & parts together in the constant attempt to find the unique among the day to day machinations of real life.

Nancy Graham


Nancy is a graduate of the Design Department at UC Davis and holds a secondary teaching credential in Art and English.  Unfortunately, her teaching career was brief due to moving about for her husband’s career, and soon thereafter she was busy raising twin boys.  Her desire for painting in oils and acrylics, which was also encouraged by her artist mother, had to take a backseat in those early years and it wasn’t until 4 ½ years ago that the interest was rekindled, but his time watercolor became her passion.  She has studied with two instructors in the Grants Pass area and signs up for every workshop that scheduling will permit.   Her paintings have taken many first place ribbons and People’s Choice awards in local studio shows as well as the Josephine County Fair.    She is a Past President of the Josephine County Artists Association, a member of the Rogue Gallery, the Grants Pass Museum of art and the Southern Oregon Society of Artists.  Eager to share her watercolor  passion with others , she looks forward to working with the folks at The Artist Attic to bring affordable, interesting and challenging classes to the Southern Rogue Valley.

Diane's Cards

Anyone can do this, asserts Diane Wiggins regarding her favorite pastime.

It doesn’t require artistic ability, an elaborate art studio, computer software, or even a computer.

Yet, upon viewing the greeting cards Wiggins hand-fashions in her Eagle Point home, observers marvel at the results–intricate beauty and professionalism that rivals Hallmark’s finest.

To employ her skill, Wiggins redefines the expression, “rubber stamp.” A simple image—either of rubber or pliable acrylic—glued onto a wooden or solid acrylic block, forms the foundation on which she builds. She applies ink, then stamps the basic design pattern onto card stock. Utilizing individual touches, she may add special or 3-dimensional effects. These might be produced through crimper tools, jewel-simulating metallic brads, colorful paints, and markers.“I liked this so much, I wanted to get others to enjoy it too,” Wiggins said of the craft she embarked upon circa 1998. “There’s something about creating a card, and having somebody receive and enjoy it, that evokes a person’s ‘inner child.’”

Over a decade ago, at the behest of a craft store proprietor in Southern California, she started teaching card making to their other customers. Wiggins has since provided instruction in central California, Hawaii, and Oregon, as well. An Oregonian for almost four years now, she taught at Scrapbook King, her part-time employer in Medford, from 2007 until they closed in September of 2009.Currently she teaches hands-on courses of 2½ hours’ duration, either in her local residence, or at Scrappy Crafts in Phoenix., Oregon.

Classes are priced at just $20 each - Open for groups of six to eight adults.
