I have been accepted as a teacher at the DIY Lounge in Portland! The DIY Lounge has a workspace located in the back of the sweet little, but well-stocked, art store on Alberta, collage. I had to submit my application and supply a reference that could veryify my art-teaching abilities. For my reference, I used my friend and mentor, Gretchin Lair of Scarlet Star Studios. She wrote such a nice tribute to my talents, that I share it with you here:
“I’ve both taught and hired Dayna to teach at my own studio, and am looking forward to doing so again. I value her because as a teacher she is dynamic, encouraging and talented. But as someone responsible for organizing a regular schedule of events, I also appreciate her responsiveness, attention to details and dependability. I highly recommend Dayna; I definitely think she’d be an asset to DIY Lounge.”
So, because I took the step to promote myself in Portland and because of Gretchin's lovely endorsement of my skills, I will be teaching two classes at collage in the DIY Lounge! Here is the info on the classes in case you are able to join me:
Itty Bitty Pretties on Saturday, March 15, 1:00-3:30 p.m.
Matchbox Shrines on Saturday, April 26, 1:00-4:00 p.m.
