My class for a group of early childhood educators was held in the Home Range Hall, a freestanding screened three-season meeting space surrounded by lovely gardens and birdsong.
Students remained relaxed and focused through a fast-paced morning session. With the slower pace of the afternoon, I was finally able to take a few photographs while students worked. Sorry, I didn't think to take pictures while students were outside sketching in the garden using fabric transfer crayons.
I'm home for a week, then off to another of my favorite teaching locations -- Sievers School of Fiber Arts on Washington Island. It's my Local Color class, a combination of field trips and studio work where we create "landscape fabric" using digital photography and surface design techniques. It's a 5-day celebration of island flora, fauna and culture.
Before I leave again, my plan is to do a few field trips close to home. I was gone most of June, so it feels like summer snuck up on me. Time to go capture some memories. Have a great weekend!
