I had a great time on Saturday afternoon at the Lansing Art Gallery, Lansing MI! I participated in Layna Lesnau's "Image Transfer" class where we experimented on wood and paper with transfers--what a BLAST!

The "Creative Tots" class yesterday morning was so much FUN but I am always sad at the last session. Our new five-week session at Reach Studio Art Center begins on April 5th. The kids have been most playful, adventurous and creative--a great way to wait out the long winter!

Lansing Art Gallery sponsored me as the Visiting Artist this week at Cole Academy, K - 6, Lansing MI. We created sculptures with found objects; recycled yarn, cardboard, silverware, lids, thread spools,fabric scraps, baskets, cassette tapes, felt, kitchen spatulas, etc. etc. etc. There were so many creative and thoughtful students making art--WOW! Many thanks to LAG and Cole Academy staff for giving me such a great opportunity. I definitely enjoyed being the visiting artist this week!
