Hi Joanne –

Thanks so much! What a wonderful e-mail to wake up to – and thanks for
putting it on your blog, I really appreciate it. I love teaching and and
often taking total beginners and showing them how easy it is to get in
touch with their own dormant creativity – I really believe it’s always
there, you just have to tap into it and allow yourself to play.

I’ll attach my March/April flyer again to post, if any of your students
want to take either the 1-day or the 3-day. I’ve added a 2nd 3-day class in
March, which filled last year (so many people in town). February is full.

Thanks again, Joanne.

All the best,

I just LOVE the work you all did, and the little texture squares are
beautiful (just tell your friends that it’s a 40×30″ painting!).
I’m also copying the supply list that I send after the 3-day class, some
of these items you didn’t use, but a lot you did. I’ve included the Golden
products as well, if you’re back in the North and need to buy them.
I’m also attaching a flyer for my upcoming classes in March and April. My

February class is full and the March classes usually fill too, if any of
your friends are interested.

March 11: Introduction to Mixed Media (2 spaces left)
March 17-19: Mixed Media, Texture & Mark Making (1 space left)
