Fun at Art is You Retreats

Last week end I attended Art is You in Minneapolis, my current home town.

I took Sunny Carvelo's classes. She is a mixed media artist from Alabama

Here is just a smigion of her work.

So cool right! She is such an inspiration.
One of the nicest people I've met.
We just "clicked" You know how it is, when you meet someone, and feel like you've known them your whole life. Ya, that's it.

Actually the whole group at Art is You felt like that.

Here are some photos from the event, left to right
Sunny, Kim, Lori, Rachel, and the little one is KiKi.  My new BFF's!

Such goodness!
                                        me showin Kim some love.
                                         Here is what I made in Sunny's classes.
                                          Painted with Golden paints on Ultra Suede.

                                                           Same paints on gesso bord.  
Not finished, it needs a little phrase of words 
underneath her little body.

                                                      Faux  mache
                                                     This was fun, well they all were.
                                                              Come to Minneapolis next year for Art is You. Look for them on FB they have other cities too.


The Dutch Touch Class

I was a lucky girl, I got to go to NIADA and take a three day class with Kate Church, then to Sanford FL to Anne Hesse's home for "The Dutch Touch Class" Ankie Daanen and Marlaine Verhelst. In the Dutch Touch class, we made a Fish Boy, mine came out as a Fish Girl, with a Halloween flair.

Ankie and Marlaine were really fun, and great teachers.
 I know some of you are checking out the art in the back ground, yes, I took pictures at Anne's and I will post them. Her home was fabulous, we were surrounded with so much inspiration.

Here are some more photos of some of the other's dolls.

              Marcia's Fish Boy

                         This is Deborah and her adorable Fish Boy.
 This Marcia, she is an artist from Canada, she and her husband, Ty teach various classes.
I shared two weeks with her in hotel rooms, along with Janice, who hates having her picture taken.
We drank a lot of wine and laughed like fools.
Ankie and Marlaine handing out our certificates!

Those girls know how to have fun...
Hi everybody,
Just got back from Orlando FL. I went to NIADA conference.
I took a 3 day class from Kate Church. She was so wonderful.
I love her figurative art. She is a sweetheart. 
Here is some of her work.
I purchased the little guy on the shoe brush. 
It's Kate's "Brushes with Destiny" series. Cute huh!

This is the doll I created for my critique at NIADA.

I had a great time, and learned a lot. 
I'll be posting more photos of NIADA.
