Coming from the East Coast where she had attended Cooper Union Art School in New York City to Omaha, Nebraska in 1888, Katherine Ball began seven years with the Omaha public schools as writing and drawing teacher and art supervisor. From her first year in that state, she played an active role in formation of the Western Art Association. Its purpose as explained by George W.
