Travel guides for the 2019 Global Harmony Summer Adventure Camp:
Ann Turgeon – “Around the World with Arts & Crafts” 
Ann will bring arts and crafts from around the globe to the Gualala Arts Center.  With Ann our travelers will embark to Indonesia, Africa and India. She will create an environment that allows a hands on, creative free experience with arts from other cultures.  Ann is currently teaching in Maryland and she is chairing an Arts Festival that she has been involved with for close to 10 years.
Jan Henley – “Using Paint to Explore Other Cultures”
Jan will trek across the countries and borders of time and space.  She will start with Australian Aboriginal Art, hightail it to Russia to experience a Fairytale, get serous with writing numbers and characters of Chinese, and finish up in India and the Festival of the Elephants.  Jan has taught art to the youth K-8 for the last dozens years here on our coast.  She has also curated the young artists exhibit here at Gualala Arts for most of these years.
Sara Bogard – “Yoga Journey to World Peace” 
Sara will lead her classes through a journey inward and around the globe through yoga.  Sara has an extensive career in theater arts and dance, toured nationally and internationally, co-founded Reno Summer Youth Program. Sara is a synergy yoga teacher in Point Arena and the Sea Ranch just to mention a few of her movement/theater/camp qualifications.
Harmony Susalla – “An Artist Adventure”
Harmony and our travelers will weave their way around the globe learning about famous artists who used color and shapes in new and exciting ways and exploring their techniques and styles. Starting with straight lines and primary colors they will travel to the Netherlands and be introduced to Piet Mondrian.  Then they will make paper cutouts like Matisse did in Paris, cover things with dots like Yayoi Kusama (from Japan), and  more!  Harmony is a textile designer for the past 20 years, has been the volunteer coordinator for the Global Harmony Summer Adventure Camp for the last 7 years, been signing her art “Harmony Art” since age of 5 and been working with the youth since she was 15.

Serra King – “Dancing around the World” Serra will teach dance and culture from several countries culminating in a performance to share with our Global Harmony Camp Community.  Serra is a second grade teacher in the State of Washington. She has grown up dancing starting with Ballet at the age of three and ended her formal education in college.  She has taught many classes for youth and choreographed performances with her students for many years.


Suzan Friedland – “Fire, Food, Chop, Eat” 
Suzan will gather ingredients from other cultures and countries to explore the culinary arts from around the globe.  Suzan holds a Master’s of Fine Arts degree and is an innovator in the world of contemporary textile art. Her pieces are part of the collection of the San Jose textile museum in San Jose, California, and in private collections around the country.
