Taking inspiration from my books Collage Unleashed and Doodles Unleashed along with my artful journey as a mixed media artist, I have created fun and inspirational mixed media workshops that bring out the playful artist and child-like spirit in everyone. The approach to making art in my workshops is fun, spirited and funky. Your creative spirit will be guided through inspirational idea jumpstarts and aRt! exercises! In 2012, I will be scaling back my teaching in-person workshops. I've been on the road for 10 years teaching and want to focus on painting. I might have a few more events added..so check back. Come and pLaY! Please contact store/event directly for registration. (updated 5.17.12)
