We’ve written before about these two sisters—Susan Cherney and Wendy Ross—and their venture Inside the Story, but we haven’t in a while and they are still going strong, offering a variety of workshops, lectures, and field trips for people who want to know more about a specific artistic genre or movement.

Inside the Story events are usually limited in number, which enhances the intimacy and impact of the experience, and are held in Susan and Wendy’s home or on location. Their overnight art trip to San Diego with art historians Clare Kunny and Colin Westerbeck is already sold out—meaning if you’re interested in one of their learning adventures, we’d suggest you book as soon as possible.
