A Workshop to Remember with Christy Tomlinson

Thought I'd share with you some photos and some thoughts regarding the 2-day workshop that we just finished in Studio CRESCENDOh with Christy Tomlinson. Here is our official group shot that we took at the end of the 2-days. Can you tell that we totally bonded? Because we did. It was an amazing group of artists.

I was so impressed with Christy's teaching style ... gentle, informative, generous, and patient ... and just so able to gently coax out the unique artistic voice in all who came.

jenelle and libbyChristy loved on each and every student and made sure that everyone experienced success.

I'm so proud that people can come and enter just as they are, to find acceptance, integrity, and a focus on art. This has always been important to me.


After two days of intense art-making, we had a final show-and-tell.

But you know what the good news is? Christy is coming back to teach in Studio CRESCENDOh! How cool is that? It'll either be later in 2013 or some time in 2014.

You heard it here first ... so for everyone who was on the waiting list for this workshop, I hope you'll stay tuned to our master calendar and get a chance to participate in the next one.

A recap about this past weekend would not be complete without mentioning Chrissy Gardner. Chrissy is a dear friend of Christy's who came to the workshop to provide support and just a constant source of positivity and enthusiasm. I can't tell you how strongly I connected with Chrissy. I feel that the universe gave me a huge gift by introducing her to me through Christy and I'm thrilled to call her friend.

Chrissy is also a talented artist in her own right. She'll also be returning to Studio CRESCENDOh to teach a workshop on the totally NOW and totally fabulous topic of Chalk Art. I'm very excited. More on that later.

Many many thanks to everyone who made this past weekend so memorable. :)
