I did a couple classes last week-end with the wonderfully talented Jane LaFazio; if you get the chance, definitely attend one! She is funny and down-to-earth, and made everyone feel like amazing artists.
The first class was collage - here's Jane showing us some marvelous examples of her work
The second class was watercolor for mixed-media journaling; here's the first work the class did
I know, right! So fun! Mine is the little rose in the center.
The venue was nice, it's a yearly convention called Learning and Product Expo:Art in Pasadena - they have classes in oils, sculpture, you-name-it. And a great vendor hall, where I may have gotten a bunch of encaustic stuff, despite swearing I would NEVER do encaustic again (it was so cheap tho!) Oooo and great prices on Copic markers, couldn't pass that up either.
Hope you all had a fun and creative Halloween week-end!
