Printmaking with Kids.

Last month I taught a kid's printmaking workshop at OCAC.
What fun we had that day working with relief and mono-printmaking techniques.
The kids loved brayering out ink, creating unique designs, layering colors
and generally getting messy. I will be teaching a series of kid's summer classes
with OCAC this summer. Stay tuned for mixed media, bookmaking, and of course 
more printmaking classes. And a great round of applause to my young Artists.

Needle Felted Succulents.

I thought you would love to see the stunning results of this month's Needle Felting Class.
It was a wondrous group of students who produced absolutely amazing work.
These little succulents require no light, no water and no green thumb!

Join me next week for Needle Felted Foxes.
Wednesday, May 21st from 5-7:30pm at Collage.
Give the lovely ladies at the shop a call to register: 503.249.2190

What a lush land of tropical delights. A week was spent soaking in the most missed
sunshine, eating copious amounts of fresh fruit and fish, body surfing until our knees
and chests were raw, traveling the long and winding road to rural Hana, swimming in 
waterfalls, befriending colorful feathered friends, convincing horses that their pasture
had the best view on the island, being mesmerized by the shapes and colors of the 
flora and fauna, walking through a beautifully breezy bamboo forest, and watching
sunset after sunset after sunset. I am incredibly fortunate to have spent a week in 
paradise with the people I love most on the planet. Mahalo, Hawaii, until next time...
