Barb Dettler


A community artist, painting everything from murals to ostrich eggs since 5th grade. An art educator for 25 years, she has consistently used the teaching format to promote recycling into ART. Collage images incorporating junk jewelry, Jennie-O stickers and digitally enhanced photo images are her joy. A a member of the MAAC group, she is hopeful to get our community involved in a large mural painting this summer. She encourages all ages to show their talents in the district 740 area. She is one of the artists featured on the “Welcome to Melrose” sign and hopes to continue promoting ARTS in our community as she ‘kicks off.”
