"Thank you so much for such a delightful experience in your Collage and Coladas workshop yesterday. You are an extraordinary teacher, and the way you see something beautiful and creative in everyone's work is a real inspiration. I haven't enjoyed making art in over 40 years, until your workshop. It was a moving experience to see how you brought out the creativity in each of us." ~ Jason B. (after Crested Butte collage workshop)
"THANK YOU for such a great workshop on Saturday. I have felt “blocked” for so many years when it comes to journaling, and now feel as if I’ve “broken through” those feelings! Just putting something down on those pages gets me completely energized and I can’t stop! What a gift you have and thank you for sharing it". ~ Ann G. (after Art Student League of Denver workshop)
"Do you ever leave a workshop breathless and wonder if you gave sufficient thanks to the instructor? You are magic! Thanks for being my lightening rod and the essence of positive spiritual potential that will take my art journey to a new place. On your worst days, remember this, you have a remarkable gift to inspire and to teach by example. God is smiling on your creation. " ~ KW after Crested Butte workshop

Sketching Spain, 2020 We just completed our two workshops in Oct, 2019 and they were fabulous adventures! We will release details of the 2020 trips by early February. Please let us know if you would like an early bird notice for trips in 2020. To see the details and itineraries from 2019 (likely to change in 2020) link here. No experience in sketching or travel journaling necessary! The small group of 10 students allows for plenty of individual instruction; it is a fantastic way to see a gorgeous area. We wander & sketch as travelers, not tourists.
