Preparing for the 3 workshops I'll teach at Art and Soul in Portland at the end of the month is taking up much of my time. But it is a fun process that culminates in meeting many new people and seeing old friends, and teaching people new creative processes, which I love.
The Transfers and Transparencies workshop is one I have taught now for...hmmm... how many?...probably 4 years now. It always fills even if we have 3 sessions of it, as we did last year. If you are signed up, rest assured you will not fall asleep, even though it is in the evening, as the class is engaging and active from beginning to end.
The other workshop I am teaching is Dumpster Diving Assemblage, a found object art workshop. I've had fun sorting through all of personally collected goodies to fill Rubbermaids full of "stuff" for my students to choose from.
I'll be posting this week on the Art and Soul Yahoo! group asking for helpers for both classes. So if you are attending Art and Soul, but didn't get into my classes before they filled, this is the next best thing. You can help during the class, and you get all the info and materials the class attendees get. Usually I turn people away because so many want to participate, so if you are interested, email me (see sidebar where it says Email Me). Thanks!
