Art is...You in Stamford CT

I had a wonderful time teaching in Stamford for Art is...You. Despite 30 lbs. of beeswax vanishing mysteriously before it got to me, I was able to teach three classes with amazing students who did amazing work. Thanks to Sallianne who rounded up more wax so I could teach the first day!

Here are photos from "Wax Reflections", a class where students created gorgeous portraits in encaustic medium. I had brought enough encaustic medium to get us started and the additional wax arrived before we needed it. The fuses in the room tripped a few times until the hotel staff managed to keep them from doing so. All part of the retreat experience, sometimes. Despite these glitches, I am blown away by what these brave students created!
