Thanks for all of your kind words and support this weekend. They really, really mean a lot to me. I tend to get very depressed when I lose a teaching venue. Not only does it mean a lack of income for me (and my family) but it really means an even bigger loss, one of community. I wonder what will happen to my students (especially the ones whose faces I see repeatedly and enjoy having them in my classroom. You know who you are!) Thanks to everyone who suggested places. I really appreciate it. I really need to add some Southern California locations to that list. So if you know of folks with studio space, an open living room or patio area, storefront, (ANY place where I can hold a class) in or around Los Angeles, please let me know! I have also taught private classes, parties, etc... I would REALLY appreciate it!
Yesterday I told you the story of my beginnings as a teacher. I hope to get some time this week to tell you how I was influenced to become a traveling teacher. It's about time I thank the person who did that (he has no idea how much he influenced my life.)
One last minute blurb, I'm teaching TWO classes this weekend before I head on over to the Masonville Artist's Studio in Loveland, Colorado and Art Unraveled in Phoenix, AZ. This Saturday, I'll be at Banana Rose teaching my Moments class and on Sunday, I'm teaching my very popular and in its third revision, Little Love Notes: Triptych Book Revised and Revisited. I'm looking forward to seeing what my students do with these projects this weekend!
