Diane Turner – in her own words: “It’s hard to believe I have taught for over 25 years at Bountiful/Davis Art Center. I have learned my skill from masters, Tony Rasmussen, LeConte Stewart and many others. I feel an obligation to pass this knowledge on to others, that it might add the joy to their lives that I have experienced. I have found that our class work has enabled others to escape for a moment from the distraction of life and see the beauty that is all around us. This is a great honor for me to have had this opportunity in my life.”
This was quoted from Diane Turner when she received the Inaugural Foundation Award in Education at Bountiful/Davis Art Center in 2009 at the Annual Meeting. In her humility she may scoff at this but BDAC considers her a ‘Living Legend’. We are honored that she teaches at Bountiful/Davis Art Center
Lester B. Lee has also been a treasured teacher at BDAC for many years where has served as Chair of the Board of Trustees. He was educated at UNLV, USU, BYU Idaho, and BYU where he earned an MFA. He has received national awards for art and teaching including the prestigious Huntsman Secondary Teacher of the Year award. He is recognized for his cover art for the Work and the Glory series, sells prints worldwide and is widely collected in Davis County, Utah and beyond. The list of young artists he has mentored is long, some of them becoming well –known artists due to his influence. Lester recently retired from teaching in Davis County and moved with his family to Cache County. He is greatly missed and we are thrilled that he will be back to teach two workshops at BDAC.
