I got to spend the day with eighteen very talented artists. It was my Remnants Collage class and I couldn't be happier. The day was beautiful, the art and paint were flying and there were big smiles all around.
But here, look for yourself:
See all that fabric? Swoon. I swear, I'd be talking to someone while they were working and I'd think, "Oh look at that fabric! Wait, focus Lynn, focus." (I'm an addict, it can't be helped.)
There were tons of collages popping up everywhere:
Aren't they incredible? I mean really, the depth on what everyone was making was really fantastic. (These beauties belong to Deb and Kathy. I wanted to steal them.)
My studio and washout area now look like this:
(What? You don't hang your thermofax screens from your shower curtain rod?)
Its such a treat for me to get to spend the day teaching. Every time I do it I always wonder why I take so long to schedule things. Truth is, the day job gets in the way too much so my in person teaching is incredibly sporadic.
And there was lots of help from several lovely ladies that made the day perfect (thanks Kate! thanks Mary! thanks Sandy!). Its such a great feeling when you can be on a team that creates something so special.
I had such a wonderful time that I decided I don't want it to stop and since we all live in the wonderful age of super technology, I'm making it a priority to translate my Remnant Collage class into an online offering. It will most likely pop up early next year (which isn't so far away when you realize that we are halfway through October already) but its going to make it.
Thanks everyone! :)
