Two and a half years ago I cornered CarolAnn Waugh and suggested we put together a mixed media workshop that would challenge us as artists and teachers, and offer our students a chance to see "how the other side" works. It has been an amazing ride! We taught our 4th workshop this past weekend, and had the honor of working with 18 students from 3 states and all around Colorado. I am so grateful for the generosity of our participants, and especially CarolAnn, who all share their process and creative energy. We had experienced fiber artists, experienced art journalers, newbies to all forms of mixed media and everyone in between. It was such fun and the two days were filled with growth, humor and layers and layers of color, texture and patterns. Thanks to our "angel", Diana, everything ran smoothly and everyone stayed well hydrated. Thanks to Debbie, our resident baker, and Marj we all stayed snack-full.
