Upcoming bookbinding workshop!

Whats up next?  Bookbinding!  This is a great trade to learn not only for something new to do during the winter months but they also make wonderful gifts.  This time around you can choose to make a watercolor journal or a writing journal.  Just let me know before the workshop which you would like to make!

Plein air painting workshop update!

Wow!  What a day Saturday was!  We still had some great fall color to inspire us.  The weather spiced it up a bit... My very brave student got the full experience of plein air painting... The wind picked up and we got rained on a few times!  We had great fun and her painting came out beautiful. Thanks again to the Gordon Nash Library for the use of the lawn!
