I have to say, I just got back from such a lovely trip to Beaufort NC and Craving Art Studio! My fantastic host Heather Sink was just as much of a pleasure to be with this year as she was last year! She is currently hosting a show of my works until the end of May and was so kind to host my three day "Exploring The Surface " workshop. I love doing workshops in Beaufort so much, we have agreed to do another one next year, once we have dates, we will update everyone! Beaufort is such a beautiful town, full of great people, food and amazing views! For those who don't know, it's actually the third-oldest town in North Carolina, it's a coastal town located in an area referred to as the "inner-banks" and it hosts several fun festivals through out the year. I just lucked out to be there for the 2017 Beaufort Wine and Food Festival this year!
Last week I was in Beaufort, NC at Craving Art Studio teaching a workshop and also leaving a show behind. I had so much fun with Heather Sink, owner of the Studio/Gallery, and all of the new students and friends I met during my visit. The Studio is in a gorgeous restored victorian home. The high ceilings and breath taking natural light were perfect to showcase my work. Heather could not have been more gracious and welcoming, making me feel totally at home in minutes. All of the students were so amazing and became fast new friends. I look forward to returning in Spring 2017 to teach again. Be on the look out - if you are up for a gorgeous town, with really nice people and great food, then Beaufort, NC is for you.
It was one year ago on when Heather Sink from Craving Art Studio contacted me to discuss coming to Beaufort, NC for a workshop and show. Well the date has finally arrived and I will be packing up to head to Beaufort right after I return from Spring Break. Heather describes the group of students as enthusiastic and eager to learn. I am very excited to meet everyone on March 31st. I feel like I learn as much from my students at workshops as they learn from me. It is so awesome to get to meet a new group of friends with a common interest and to be immersed in the world of art for 3 solid days!! I also look forward to my Show Opening Reception on Saturday night at the Craving Art Studio 6-8 pm. Above is a sneak peak. I will have around 18 new paintings.
The 2016 Workshop Calendar is still in the works but we are pleased to share these dates with you as they are available. Teaching is one of my most favorite things and I hope to see you in a workshop next year!
