In taking a workshop, we learn from trying new things. We also learn from the other artists participating. Seating charts promote more interaction. I want to encourage the newbies to observe the more experienced inkers and the more accomplished to share their skills and processes with the group. I am learning and growing all the time and each successive event seems to be the best one yet!
There is very little idle chit chat once we get started at these workshops. I have been blessed with such a wonderful, focused, dedicated group of attendees. They can get so intense, that sometimes I have to crack a joke or two to get them to lighten up.
I like offering a home cooked meal at lunch time. It gives people a chance to relax, recharge and refocus. The menu this year Included Homemade - Garden Salad, Jerry's Specialty - Fresh Caught Sea Bass and Stripper, Scallop Potatoes, Green Beans Amandine, Mushroom Garden Quiche, Maple Walnut Oatmeal Pie, Ginger Snaps and Sugar Cookie Hearts.
Thanks to all my students! You all bring such joy to me, to others and most importantly, to yourselves.
Until next time - HAPPY CREATING - xo ~ Sandy
