2016 Year of the Monkey


We've just begun a wonderful, complicated and energetic 3D Year of the Monkey mask this week! We are building the foundation with a chipboard form and dreaming/designing the character we want to depict. I'll snap some pictures tomorrow. Today we were so immersed in the cutting, fitting, forming and creating crowns, adornments, etc. that I completely forgot to step back and grab the camera.

Carving Crows (& Ravens)

I've been developing a great Crow and Raven project for Fall hoping to continue in the theme of printing that I've started this semester. I really like the feel of carving the EZ carve blocks and getting such a wonderful "woodblock" print look. The kids are going to LOVE this project. New tools, challenging subject matter and oh so perfect for the season.

Surrounded by Beauty


The 2015 StudioTime Celebration was beyond wonderful! We were surrounded by our beloved students and their family and friends. The atmosphere was charged with beauty, excitement and love! Each project grouping looked amazing and it was fun to watch each artist search for their work and share it with everyone around. I've been receiving calls and email from the community sharing their excitement and interests about StudioTime and the talented student that attend. Congratulations and thank you to everyone.
