MUST . . . make . . . sock animals. NOW!

July 18, 2008

The menagerie keeps growing. And you, too, can create your own family of cute sock and glove critters. It’s not too late to sign up for our Sock Animal workshop which is coming up soon, Sunday July 27th. Register soon.  Our last workshop, a beeswax collage class, was filled!

Capra the Goat, by Jessie S.; Spot the Dog, Tush the Pig (Fatush’s little brother), Ellie the Phant, Boris the Dog, and Zippy the Zebra, all by me.

Kid’s Poetry and Book Arts Camp ROCKS!!!

July 16, 2008

What can I say? It was fantastic! After a fun week of teaching a book arts workshop at the Mendocino Art Center,  I rushed home to set up the Art Barn for the grand opening and the Kid’s Poetry & Book Arts Camp. The kids really enjoyed their free-form writing and we made some fantastic messes while creating paste paper and wonderful poetry books. After four days, they each had three finished accordion books, one with a completed, illustrated poem. Thank you Crystal and Susan for being there to help, we couldn’t have done it without you!
