The Coffee Plantation barista team of Diane, Loretta, and Theo have been attending art classes from the famed local Key West artist Rick Worth, Rick is known for it's paintings of our tropical island of Key West and he uses everything he can find to use for his painting pallet. You can find Rick's work on tin roof panels, cars (yes, cars as in vehicle) and of course canvas. His classes are attended by art eager locals who would love to pick up some of Rick's incredible talent. Last night our friend and Key West visitor Cherie joined us for a "art boot camp" class. The results are phenomenal, who knew, yes, we can be a artist too....
