Its official! My New Orleans workshop is a go. Over the last 6 months or so Kathy Malkasian of Valley Ridge Art Studio have been working on the idea of a New Orleans workshop, We are still working out some of the finer details but it definitely is a go!
A Place for Notions and Potions: An Apothecary Kit
The dates are going to be February 9-16 of 2011.
I wanted to come up with a workshop that suited the mysterious nature of the place, so here is what I came up with a workshop "A Place for Notions and Potions: An Apothecary Kit". I'll have a full class description later.
Kathy and I wanted to create an amazing environment for students to work on art as well as to be exhilarated by the amazing place. I have always loved the idea of teaching in places where the location inspires the art, and the art inspires the student to explore the area. So we picked New Orleans because, after all it is one of most fascinating places in the world, rich with history, food, music, strange ghost stories, etc. etc. etc.
The class will consist of three days of workshop with me and two days of city tours to unusual places interspersed. Not to mention there will be plenty of time to explore the city on your own, or perhaps leisurely sit back and enjoy a Pimm's Cup at the historic Napoleon House (one of my favorite haunts...been around for 200 years).
Sounds pretty nifty doesn't it?
