Her time out in the community has established Ronni Jolles as a fixture in the local art scene. From being a founding member of the local artists’ consortium Great Falls Studios to the classes and speaking engagements she offers aduts and children, Ronni balances long hours in the studio with time giving to others. She will also be teaching art classes, in both basic art skills and in her unique art form, “Painting with Paper.”

Among her greatest gifts was the donation of a 7-foot by 3-foot mural to the Great Falls Library in 2007. “Fairy Tales on the Bookshelf” was the result of three years of planning, inspired by Ronni’s desire to make the library “a place where children want to be.”
