Once a year or so I like to continue my own education with an indepth workshop with someone I consider a modern master. When choosing the workshop, of course the mentor must also suite my own work. That doesn’t mean that have to paint in the same style as me but they must have knowledge I can absorb and that will help me in my own art journey. When searching for a workshop mentor I look for someone contemporary and colorful and most importantly, who’s work grasps my attention, freezes me in my tracks and inspires me. My three favorite workshop teachers are Caroline Jasper, Linda Kemp and Robert Burridge, each who challenge me and inspire me, and I feel not just inspiration but a jump in my work immediately following the classes.
It is always so rewarding as a teacher when a student sells a work of art. I think I may get as excited as the artist or the buyer together. I taught several private classes out of state this summer, and a student sold a beautiful piece created from his first wash he did in our color wash workshop. It was sold through Etsy and was shipped off this morning to another country.
I had such an amazing time at my Art Expressions Class last night. Every single work of art not only turned out beautiful but each had a unique personality that added so much self expression to the work. Art and yummy cupcakes and making money for the Fallbrook community and Food Pantry was just an incredible combination, add a dozen fabulous women to the mix and I had one of the best nights of my life. Thank you Lila for having me be a part of this wonderful event!
