Art is Life

I had a wonderful time with the River City Dollmakers late last month in Cincinnati.  We created full body sculptures in polymer clay and learned a lot from each other. One of the best things about teaching is what you learn from your students. 

I have been taking an online class myself this month on with Dion Dior. The class is all about using Inktense water color pencils and what a revelation they have been  to me.  Dion does a fantastic job of organizing her class into instruction and exercises which I love.  Quite a bit different than working on just one project for weeks. I know I'll use these pencils and my new brushes on all kinds of media besides sketch book pages, cloth and paperclay are very promising. Dash is a peek at what I've been doing. 

Next up is teaching at John C. Campbell in North Carolina from July 22-28.

We will be sculpting Character Heads in Creative Paperclay® my favorite type of clay. There may still be room for you in this class, visit their website to check it out. The  place is magical!
