my theme for the year seems to be do things that scare you. stretch, push yourself, learn that it's ok. so when amy asked me to teach a mixed media class at wingtip press i said yes.
and i thought about what i have liked in workshops i've taken, and what i could teach and how to facilitate play (cuz really, mixed media is about play). and then i thought that maybe i hadn't planned enough, but i didn't want to over think it.
tonight was the first night, and we had fun. here's the clean table at the beginning. 5 students, everyone had 2 6x6 canvasses & 2 8x10 baltic birch panels to work on.

panels drying in the print rack :)
and the canvasses-
we had fun- and i am looking forward to more fun next week. this week we laid the background, next week we'll continue to build on that, adding layers & texture & a focal point and the last week we'll put the finishing touches on things.
what a great evening- can't wait for more!
