Portland Art & Soul Blogroll: Day 5

Today is my day to tell you about the classes I am teaching in Portland from Sept. 30-Oct 4th, 2013. I have four classes, and one of them is full, but there is room in the other three.

Portland Art & Soul Blogroll: Day 1

One of the places I am teaching this fall is Portland, Oregon for Art & Soul, a large retreat that has been around for years. The venue is right on the Columbia River.

This post is to introduce you to five other teachers who are teaching there, and to entice you to check it out. At the end of the week I will post my four classes and give you a chance at a giveaway, a mixed-media box of goodies and a copy of the Sketchbook Project that you can fill with arty goodness.

Inventing Alphabets

It has been ages since I have been here, I am ramping up now to come back with a bang. Family, schedules, all of it fell at my feet and stopped me from doing anything else. I missed being here, in the same way I miss journaling when I don’t do it for a while. In October I went to Portland, Oregon to teach for Art & Soul Retreats. They have a new venue right on the Columbia river. My class faced the water, and we watched this happy face barge go by, right out our window. My brother Andrew and I went canoeing on the Willamette River. We also went to see the Vaux Swifts, small fast...
