It was a welcome change...

...from overdosing on the devastating flood news to teaching at the Creston College on the weekend.  There is nothing more uplifting than an eager group of students, flying paint, laughter and the fun of sharing upwards of twenty mixed media techniques.

From an altered book spread


to a painted paper,


to drying cobwebs,


and drizzles and drops,


it was an ever-changing rainbow of colour.


This pair looks like they're having too much fun;  I couldn't resist this photo, as Deni watches Dennis test out some brayered leaf prints - the technique demo resulted from an innocent question about the possibilities from another student - we just never know what's going to come up in these classes!


Here Colin, Deni, Dennis, Coral, Lynn and Lynn show a small part of their hard work in Mixed Media II - More Playtime for Adults.

Since this is the last workshop of the 2013 'winter season', I'll be painting and catching up on posting tutorials over the summer, with the occasional hour of weeding thrown in for good measure, likely.  You can bet, though, that there will be more workshop photos to come in the fall.  If I'm doing one in your area, please come and play with us!
