Features & Info

This class was like an adventure - the artistic outcomes were always unpredictable and sometimes enchanting. Risk taking was encouraged in a warm, inclusive atmosphere; engaged criticisms and imaginative, helpful suggestions were generously supplied. New techniques were clearly explained and demonstrated, and each session was very well-organized in both preparation and execution. The workshop was well worth the money and really has enhanced my own work.
