For the past two weeks, Val and I have been finishing up our workshop series, ending with a two day drawing intensive last week (taught by yours truly), and a papier mache workshop this week (taught by Val). It’s been great fun. Our participants have responded favorably to our efforts.
My studio turns out to be a space in which any kind of activity seems to work. The first go-round of workshop classes required a lot of planning not the least of which was how to set up the studio with tables, supplies, other stuff and last but not least, food! Each type of class required a different set up.
There are a myriad of details that went into creating the series of classes. Now that we’ve done it once, we’re looking forward to offering another set of workshops in the Fall, repeating some classes and expanding to add others.
The drawing intensive was just that–intense. I’m told some participants went home and collapsed with a glass of wine in order to recover.They were a remarkably receptive and quick group, learning more than I would have thought possible in just two-4 hour classes.
Stay tuned in–in the next few weeks I’ll be updating my workshop page on the website with the Fall schedule! And if you have suggestions of classes you are interested in, feel free to contact me or leave a comment in the section below.
