Last weekend I taught another session of my Layers of Memory class at The Art Department in downtown Salem. This class has proven to be popular and I'm looking forward to offering it again in September. What do we do in this two-part workshop? We paint, plaster, sand, stain, plaster, sand, scritch, paint, scratch, sand, paint, and at the end of the day we wax. Throughout it all, we make a glorious and holy mess.
