Working small with Cheryl Prater
I am quite sure that those attending Cheryl's
workshop here this past Saturday said this on
their way home... " It doesn't get better than that".
It was all smiles, all happy artists as we went
through the day enjoying Cheryl's sense of humor,
artistic direction and inspiration. Most everyone
had completed 3. 6 x 6 canvases as their "shrine"
to the micro mini collages that they had created
Lynn "crashed" the party by driving all the way from Charlotte, without registering, hoping to get in. She fell for Cheryl's Sixtyopoly Piece that was on the cover of Cloth Paper Scissors. She was determined to get into this class and by the looks of her in the that photo... SHE IS HAPPY.
Working small on the little chipboard pieces
was a challenge to some of us but Cheryl kept
us on track by continuing to show techniques
that she uses on her daily work.
In order for the class to complete their work
by the end of the day,
Cheryl gently kept them on task by "cracking her whip"
"you better get it done".
All kidding aside, Cheryl has a way of encouraging
with kindness and a motivating sense of humor that
Thank you Cheryl, and we all hope you come back
to teach in Saluda real soon.
First, get your book done!
