Just a quick note to let you know that I added a November 30 beginning Zentangle class to the Classes page. You will find the classes tab at the top of this page.
I’m sitting here trying to put together my spring teaching schedule. It’s a little bit like cooking; a little bit of this and a little bit of that, trying to find the perfect balance. I will be teaching beginning metal clay again at the Kansas City Art Institute and have been asked to be a metal clay instructor teaching advanced techniques at Genevieve Flynn’s teaching studio. www.genevieveflynn.com
I met Gennie when I took a beginning silversmithing class from her. I just remember her looking at my work and saying that she had never had a student “do it quite like that before”. She said that to me a lot. The first time she said it was when I got the saw blade in the frame sideways. Gennie should have recognized my talent right then and there because getting a sawblade into the frame sideways is an almost impossible feat and I managed it on my first try. And for all you silversmiths out there, I really mean sideways, not backwards.
For some reason Gennie liked me (I like to think she found me amusing) and I absolutely adored her. We have been friends ever since. Gennie is a fabulous teacher, she managed to teach me so what more can I say? I am honored that she has asked me to be an instructor at her studio.
Once I get dates nailed down I will be posting my class schedule here on my blog. I am also working on a place to start teaching Zentangle® on a regular basis and hope by the first of the year to have that information for you.
Met a wonderful person today, Lacey. She managed to take all the components that I have had floating around out there and made sense of them. Ahhh, feels so good! Thanks Lacey!
