We Had a Great Acrylic Workshop!

I taught a two-day acrylic workshop this weekend. What a great bunch of students. They all came with enthusiasm, and ready to work. I was impressed at how good they got at mixing colors and thinking about design. We saw a lot of growth in just two days. To Loreta, Jean, Amy, Susan, Bev, Paulette, Linda, and Lana — I enjoyed you all.
