Workshop Fun

Great Group!  I'm on the end at the left; it was an uplifting and FUN weekend... 

16 painters joined me last weekend for a workshop in Atlanta, at the studio of Yvonne Mendez, which was sponsored by The Art School in Sandy Springs.  We just had a GREAT time, and I had a wonderful experience with these talented people.  Luckily, one of the participants, Denise Rose, sent me some photos of everything, the people, the set-ups, and me in action, which I share below.  Prior to teaching a workshop, I get anxious and worry about it all: i.e, " Can I paint?  What will I share?  YIKES! " Fortunately, as in the past, it went well, the attendees were SO open and sharing, and it was just a rewarding experience for me.  

Next workshops that I'm teaching are at Huff Harrington Fine Art in Atlanta, both of which are sold out, but one to two more will be scheduled in the fall.

  1. Love it! Glad you liked the photos and you can see how wonderful you looked teaching us! It was really so fun and a weekend I will forever cherish.

  2. Nancy is was one wonderful workshop and you should never worry about doing one ever again! I learned so much and you helped me to get some freedom going and loosen up1 I would love to come and do it all over again. If you schedule any more 2 or 3 day workshops, I hope you will let me know.

    Denise and I are headed out to Scottsdale for a Jennifer McChristian workshop. We will be adding new of our venture on our blogs. We are so excited.

    I am following your blog now so I will try to keep up with what's going on in your world.

  3. Really enjoyed looking at your blog and your work!

  4. Nancy, I really enjoyed your workshop. It was very freeing to paint with a bigger brush. I stopped over at Huff Harrington today and saw some of your beautiful floral paintings
