Summer Dreaming!!!

During these cold gray days of Winter, I often
find myself dreaming of bright sunny Summer
moments to come. This year, I have an extra
special Summer activity planned, and I hope
you will join me!

I am thrilled to announce, mom-in-law,
Marylin, and I will be teaching two inspiring
2-day workshops in late June at the Idyllwild
Arts Academy in Idyllwild, California!

Idyllwild Academy is located in the Strawberry
Valley nestled amidst the picturesque California
Mountains, approximately a 2 1/2 hour drive
from both Los Angeles and San Diego, or a 1 hour
drive from Palm Springs. The campus is a tranquil
site, only 2 miles from the village of Idyllwild, yet
removed from any urban distractions. There is
both on-site and off-site housing. And lunch is
included with your registration.

On-line registration is now open and there
are a limited number of spaces available to
keep classes small, affording students an
optimal learning environment.

Saturday-Sunday, June 28-29: Fiber Collage
at Idyllwild Arts, Idyllwild California -
Create a stunning! fiber collage, by discovering the
magic in adopting orphan quilt blocks and using
these cast-offs as the foundation for painted fabric
appliqué designs.

Thursday-Friday, June 30-July 1: Pastel Art Journaling
at Idyllwild Arts, Idyllwild California -
This workshop explores that art pastel medium along
with methods for sketching from a photograph using
a fast and easy technique that requires no previous
drawing skills, idea discovery for recording the
everyday, along with exploring the benefits of art
journaling, overcoming the fear of a blank page,
adding greater perspective by including your words/
writings, and tip/tricks for taking photographs to
use as page inspiration.

So don't delay, sign-up for one or both workshops today!
