Words cannot describe the past 4 days that we spent with
Katie Kendrick , however MAGICAL, comes into my thoughts at this moment. Those of you who had the opportunity to meet and learn from her know exactly what I am talking about. Trinka Seals from Alabama told me more than once that Katie was the best teacher she had ever taken a workshop from.
To start the weekend we dined outdoors on my porch and began discovering all about each other from growing up to our creative adventures along the way.
A full classroom of excited women soaked up every word from Katie on Friday as we created our own style of "faces" and then on to collage on Saturday with another full class.
Shown is work on the right by Meg Fowler and on the left by
Port Orange, Florida artist, Michelle Czulada.
Michelle sort of went "outside the box" with hers. (notice the square ones)
Saturday night was play night at West on First in Hendersonville for wood fired pizza with Cheryl Prater and her husband Mark, Paul and I, Judy Sy and of course our guest of honor, Katie Kendrick.
Sunday we made things a little more
intimate as 8 of us met in the Random Arts workspace for Feminine Icons. Some of the images
took my breath away and by 4 oclock
we all had to say good bye and thank
you to Katie for 3 absolutely magical workshops that
nurtured all of our thirsting creative souls. Thank you Katie.
