PREPARING FOR OPEN STUDIOS. Wayne Geehan, of the Highland Artists' Studios, works on one of his storybook illustrations. Carlisle's Highland Building will have its annual Open Studios Saturday and Sunday, March 31 and April 1. The artists have prepared displays of their recent work and will explain what they do and answer questions about how they do it.

Students and graduates will recognize several of the artists who contribute to art education in the Carlisle Schools: Kathy Mayer, Lonnie Harvey, Wayne Geehan and Phyllis Hughes. Make a monoprint with Lonnie Harvey on Sunday, April 1, from 2 to 4 p.m. at the Highland Open Studios. Adults are as welcome as children. Lonnie's expertise and wonderful ability to convey ideas make a delightful experience. (Courtesy photo)
