I adore my students! They keep me motivated and inquisitive. I know that as I am getting ready to teach at the new Seattle CREATE Art Retreat, I will be meeting new students as well as many that have taken classes from me before. I want to offer new and exciting ways to draw, paint, add to journals, create and explore. As I am organizing and packing my boxes of art supplies I can't help to try new things. It makes the preparation for my class take longer but it is so fun to offer new and creative ways to do the art that I like to do!
