A "deMeng" kind of weekend in Saluda






This past weekend was such a blast with Michael deMeng here teaching again. He is such a great teacher that this is his 8th year coming to Random Arts and every year it's just as good or not better than the last.

The first class that he taught was  "Zoo-illogicals" and of course, it had to do with animals so everyone in attendance "did their thing" on some sort of animal encased in a deep frame.
 This "swan" beginning is starting to take shape as
Flavia begins the process. I especially like the "rear end"

Jen did a "flockette" theme using those long Barbie Doll legs and transformed the head with a bird head... THIS is just the beginning! 
 This happy class of 10 
will be back for more next year, as usual.


Michael took the torch to the front yard on Saturday and Sunday
in the Patron Saint of Discarded Things, 2 day workshop.
Here he shows off his torching skills with Shellac.
DO NOT TRY THIS AT HOME WITHOUT A BURNING BUDDY!!!


Kate O'Connor from Asheville, NC is almost 
done with her piece. It always amazes me how
everyone starts with "random objects" and ends up 
with a great work of ART.
 Here we all are at the end of 
day 2 with Michael and a group
of 12 happy artists - and me.

  1. Oh, what fun! I would love to take a class by him one day ... on my 'bucket' list! Glad you all had fun.

  2. Looks like you all had such a great time Jane. I wish we were closer to eachother, but then that would probably get very pricey for me!

    See you next month!
