Teaching Again! First Up: Layers of Memory

Paint. Plaster. Wax. It was all being flung on Friday night and Saturday by ten adventurous and creative women. After a one year hiatus from teaching, I returned to teaching at a new venue and with a new class. The venue is the wonderful art supply store in downtown Salem, The Art Department. The class is Layers of Memory, where students learned to prepare boards with paint and plaster, then add layers of acrylic stain (with scritching and scratching and more layers, of course), ending with a rich layer of cold wax. It's all such a yummy process.

  I got the classroom set up in advance and waited for my students to arrive. We immediately dug in.

Some of the finished and in-process pieces from the weekend.



It was such an honor to be a guide for these ladies. Many were inspired to continue with this process, which is always a bonus. Since this class sold out and had a pretty nice waiting list, stay tuned as it will be offered again very soon.
