goodbye, summer

There's a nip in the air and the rain has returned, but die-hard optimist that I am, I'm still hoping we'll get at least just one more blast of summer weather before the clouds roll in.
Intro to Watercolors
Even as I'm wishing that summer could stick around for a while longer, I'm also looking forward to cozy days in the studio with the fireplace going and those snug feelings that foster creativity and togetherness.

There are no mistakes
and it's never boring
on the edge of the imagination,
which is only pure SPIRIT
out having a bit of fun.

Summer is here!

"Summer afternoon, summer afternoon;
to me those have always been the two most beautiful words
in the English language."

Abbie in the garden in June

Come spend a summer morning, afternoon or evening with me
 in the studio and create something beautiful!
From watercolor painting, to printmaking, handmade paper making and 
encaustic collage to all things Fairy, there's something for artists of all ages.
Check out the class list here, or click on the Summer Classes in the sidebar.
I'll be adding classes to the schedule all summer, and you can also check the calendar for updates.

Hey there!

And just like that, it's a new year full of possibilities and adventure. What wonderful things do you have planned? How about feeding your creative spirit with some fun classes?

Get your hands dirty and make some prints...
or stay clean and carve some animals out of soap...

discover poetry in the pages of discarded books...

...or just plain having a little Doodlefest with friends?

Check out our selection of classes in the studio. 
Spring break classes, too!
