I turn seventyone in October. Slowly the workshops and, everything else for that matter, have become a little more physically challenging. However, I can still jump up and click my heels together, fell a tree and catch a snake. The conflict is that I love to travel, see the natural wonders and meet enthusiastic people that enjoy the creative life. But I will likely scale back the workshops and eventually only be offering workshops or private lessons here at the studio. I do enjoy staying home and gardening.

The SAMA Conference did generate interest at mosaic studios around the country and a full workshop was held in July 12 – 14 in Lubbock, TX. Pauline Mills hosted and we are already talking about a return visit for 2020. Her studio is really a trip and I can't wait to go back. With that location in the middle of the west I am in the process of seeing what else I can pull together to make a logical and efficient workshop circuit in 2020.

Workshop Schedule updated September 19, 2019

  • April 23 – 28 – Nashville, TN –Society of American Mosaic Artists
    For many years I have wanted to offer my workshop at one of Society for American Mosaic Artists annual conferences. This year the timing and location was optimum for me to participate. I will be offering two of my regular three day workshops all mashed into one day. Space is limited. This LINK will take you to the SAMA homepage. Workshop Sold Out
  • June 21 – 23 – Wichita, KS –Mark Arts, Mary R Koch Art Center
    It has been a few years since I have had a workshop in Wichita. Now I look forward to returning and teaching a workshop in their new facility. Go to Mark Arts and find the link when the Summer schedule is posted.
  • October 26 – 27 – Lakeland,FL –Polk Museum
    A last minute scheduling brings me back to central Florida. Workshops are always fun at this place with a museum that always has top notch shows in the Gallery to see during break time. For the pertinent information please call the Education Department at (863) 688-5423 or email
    The Saturday following the workshop, November 2, I will be volunteering at the Art Crawl and manning a tent where children will be learning how to do drawings by rubbing various textures.

    My dear friend Susan Jane Hall is one of the few people I know that has been carving for many years. I assisted her on a concrete public art project in Nashville, TN many years ago and we have carved together many times. For a number of years now she has been teaching workshops at her studio and on the road, mostly in the Northwest.
    Connect with Susan and discover her wonderful Co-Creative Workshops.
