Who we are…

 
simon-boses.png

Make Time is the brain child of Simon & Sarah Boses. They saw that people needed a place with a relaxed environment to gather and spend time being creative. While Tap Houses and Clubs are a great place to meet people, true friendships are formed through shared experiences like our Paint N Sips, Jewelry making, or even playing a board game/completing a puzzle.

Simon Boses spends hit time in the intersection between art and technology. He has spent the better part of the last 20 years designing and implementing creative (and educational) events for kids, teens and adults. His passion for art & tech has landed him work with museums, private institutions and public schools developing activities, classes, and entire camps that revolve around creative pursuits (like weaving, ceramics and painting) to technology (3D printing, coding in Python, underwater robotics). His “outside the box” community based events often share his infectious passion for art and technology. Feel free to email him any time with questions and comments at: simon@maketimeeldorado.com

Art is Life. It is a series of “Beautiful OOPS” with endless opportunities to creatively solve. Children are Masterpieces in the making. I believe every human being has creative qualities to be expressed. The visual arts are a universal way to express our inner likes, dislikes, dreams, experiences, fears, and joys. Art Skills can be acquired with practice and experience. After 27 years of teaching Kindergarten through college I’ve come to experience and realize, we all have a creative voice that enjoys being expressed. There is nothing more powerful than learning new skills which empower you to combine your thoughts, experiences, and observations into a visual work of art. Although both my BFA and MFA work focused on pottery production with a minor in Jewelry. It was in my second year of the MFA program that I discovered my passion for teaching. I found myself spending more time on my lessons than my work. Nothing brings me more satisfaction than encouraging growth from a student of any age. What a beautiful world this would be if we all felt confident enough to create our own kind of beauty.

Laura Tarnoff was born in Chicago, Illinois, where at an early age, her paternal grandfather inspired a deep appreciation and love of art. She initiated her art education at the American Academy of Art in Chicago earning an Associate Degree in Illustration and Graphic Design. After living and working in NYC, she went on to complete a BA in Art with a teaching endorsement from Black Hills State University in South Dakota. This allowed her to teach art in the public school systems in Longmont, CO, Rapid City, SD and Seattle, WA. In 2004, Laura moved from Seattle, WA to Santa Fe, New Mexico with her husband. She spent the first 5 years focusing on and developing her art career, and caring for her son, Sammy. From 2008-2016 Laura founded and directed the Tarnoff Art Center (TAC), a 501(c)3 non-profit, art-educational center outside of Santa Fe. During those 8 years, Laura continued to develop her fine art, along with managing the day-to-day functions of TAC as the lead Studio Arts Instructor and Executive Director. As the Executive Director, her emphasis was on program development, educational services coordination, and marketing TAC’s art programs within Santa Fe and surrounding communities. Additionally, she organized and supervised the functioning of several committees including: fundraising, donor cultivation, gallery exhibitions, scholarships, and grant writing, as well as collaborating with a variety of local civic leaders, organizations, and artists. Since the closure of TAC in December 2016, Laura has focused on creating a body of work as a full-time fine artist in her home-studio in El Dorado.
