Day Journeys--2009!

DJ Pettitt will be here on May 4 & 5, of this year, offering a 2-day class where she'll teach us how to include photos in our work, using new altering techniques. We'll start by making a fabulous 'cover' piece, and we'll then bind it into an art journal if you like, or use it as a springboard for the project of your choosing. We're also offering an optional meet-up on Sun. afternoon at Lake Vasona park--we'll bring a sack lunch, and then wander through the park and take photos that may then be used in the workshop. (And I'll be the one taking photos of all of YOU taking photos--I can see it now!) We thought it would be a fun and informative supplement to the class, and a great way to get to know one another. More details will follow when we post the class description soon, so hang in there! The cost for the workshop is $290 for both days, including lunches and snacks. The classes will take place at a nearby church here in Los Gatos. I'll be taking signups on Feb. 1 via email only, and payment through Paypal. Specifics to follow...

And then on July 10 & 11, Katie Kendrick and Judy Wise will come to town, bringing all of their creative energies with them! Each will teach one day, with workshops to be announced. Whatever they teach, you'll fall in love with them, and their work. They're both experienced instructors who put their heart and soul into everything they do. Just being around them for a day will leave you energized, enriched, and inspired to create!

So mark your calendars and stay tuned for more details! This year is going to be great--I've felt it ever since the clock turned 12:01 on Jan 1. A New Year, a new Journey--it's going to be what we make it. And I have faith that it's going to be fabulous!
