Leading Art Classes

This last week was the 3rd week of retreats being hosted at the Travis Mills Foundation.  (Don’t know what the Travis Mills Foundation is?  Follow the link and read all about the amazing “recalibrated Collage of art tiles done during an art class at the Travis Mills Foundationwarrior”.  I’ll also share more information about him and his endeavors a bit later).  Every Monday, I’ve been leading some very basic art instruction.  I take a variety of sculpted/carved tiles that I’ve made with me including plain ones with no decoration, blueberries, tulip, calla lily, lotus, pine trees, and a cardinal.  So they have 7 tiles to choose from.  I take a variety of acrylic paints and Veterans, spouses, and children alike all get their hands dirty.  We paint tiles, talk, laugh, and just have a good time.  It’s less of an art class and more of a time to relax, focus on making something pretty that they get to take home, and just have a good time.

     Between getting everything ready and acquired for these classes, working on my sculpting skills, and acquiring some new wholesale accounts for my ceramic baubles (that you can find for yourself at my Etsy shop)… my admin/blogging tasks have definitely fallen to the way side.  But boy do I have lots to share with y’all!  So do stay tuned and see what’s been filling my time!
