Had a fantastic time this past Saturday (10/25) teaching Monoprint Journaling at My Heart’s Fancy in Oklahoma City. Having just returned from a trip out east to visit my daughter, I was a little overwhelmed to find myself in a classroom so quickly, but it all went beautifully! I think I’m finally starting to settle into this whole teaching thing. 🙂
I was so happy to welcome several out of town students – Sally from Wichita, the Stillwater girls :), and Kathy from Anadarko; plus several returning students – Sharyn, Fran, and Rosemary. Everyone clicked like they’d known each other forever – it was a fantastic group!
We had a wide range of experience – some long time journalers and a couple of brand new journalers, which just thrilled me to no end. I’m not sure there is anying in the world as exciting to me as seeing the light flip on in a new journaler’s eyes!!
As usual, I threw a TON of information at them, a positively ridiculous number of tools, and a huge packet of goodies to take home – and they just soaked it all in like sponges!
Is there anything better than a beautiful fall day spent slinging paint in the company of like-minded creatives?
Thank you, ladies, for another amazing teaching experience. I was so inspired by each and every one of you and I hope I’ve infected you ALL with the Art Journaling bug!!!
