Artiscape 2016 Memories

Enjoyed teaching a class at Artiscape this year with creative students!! I also was delighted to be a class participant of workshops by Gaye Medbury, Trish McKinney and Lisa Ohmer. The weekend was filled with just enough events and shopping! It also had enough time for rest, at least for the students. Be sure to sign up next year.

These artist gatherings are always a wonderful way to make new friends, catch up with old ones, and share experiences and creative tips. No matter how much I think I may know about something, I am certain I will learn at least one new thing in a workshop!! Experiencing different teaching styles is a plus!! My 30+ years of teaching definitely makes me interested in the process of other teachers.

As I prepare for eye surgery on Wednesday, and try to get everything in my life organized before then, I wish each of you a wonderful Spring, filled with color and light and creativity!! My next 2 weeks may limit my studio time.


p.s. Some the work of my students are shown here. Notice the creativity of the sneaker - the pasted image tore, so she created her own shoe!! I displayed examples of my work (photo above). I used  various methods with Dreamweaver Embossing Paste (Stampendous.com)

The last image is of my friend Grace(right) and me. We decorated hats in the Steampunk theme and wore them a couple of times during the weekend! We received a lot of nice comments about them.

I ended the conference by joining another Artiscape instructor Cynthia Duncan  onstage with the after-dinner entertainers "#hashtag" - a Columbus improv group. I had sooooo much fun and couldn't believe that I wasn't nervous delivering my lines. I laughed so hard I cried, and almost couldn't deliver my lines....hmmm...a new career?? LOL It was nice to hear the audience laughing hard too!
