Join us for a fun day of art history, imagination and art!

Judy Robb is an American artist whose work is representative of daily life in rural Black Earth, Wisconsin and beyond.  In the Alla Prima style, her paintings represent the things that inspire and convey emotions – landscapes, woodlands, flowers, fields. and people – past and present.  Judy paints what she finds as inspiration based on the season and the day – the everyday things that comprise her life in the beautiful Driftless region of south-central Wisconsin.

Judy has an MS in Computer Science: Human-Computer Interaction, and has worked extensively with world-renowned museums as a creative director and a technologist.  She is one of Folklore Village’s instructors for our Folklife…Your Life children’s program.
