I taught a weekend of classes at The Ink Pad in NYC and they were wonderful! I'm always delighted to be back in NYC and back at The Ink Pad. They've been in business for TWENTY years! It's amazing. Let's all agree that it's vitally important to shop locally so that we can keep all of these wonderful independent art and craft suppliers going! I'm very guilty of ordering from Blick or Amazon because it's easier than schlepping to the store, but I want to be better about it. We need these lovely independent retailers who offer sage advice and lots of education!
Now, it's time to take a peek at all of the colorful fun we had.
On Saturday, I taught my "Interesting Faces" class. Every time I teach a class, I try to make it even better than the last time I taught it. I take the questions that students asked and I roll them into the curriculum, hopefully anticipating the next students' reactions. This was the fourth or fifth time I've taught this particular class and it was wonderful! The students were so talented and so willing to take risks. It was fantastic!
On Sunday I taught "Patterned Paper Collage." This is a class that I have been teaching for years. It was one of the first classes I developed after discovering deli paper. The first half of the class is all about creating a palette of papers. The second part of the class is all about creating beautiful image-based collages. Take a peek:
