Mini workshop with Laurie Mika

Helen Shafer Garcia, Leslie Harris, Jane LaFazio and Laurie Mika
(Lynn Leahy couldn't attend) 
We met yesterday at Laurie Mika's for a mini workshop. Laurie taught us how she makes her gorgeous polymer mixed media mosaics. She is the master of this technique and you can tell we had fun!

Our October 2012 San Miguel art retreat is full! Wait list only. We're thrilled at the response for this retreat. Thank you!

Our plans are shaping up for a mixed media art retreat in Santa Fe, New Mexico in late April/early June of 2013 (email to be put on the interest list) and another retreat to beautiful San Miguel de Allende, Mexico in 2014.

Lots of planning goes into an art retreat, especially a destination retreat like our upcoming Libro de Ofrendas in San Miguel de Allende. True, it's not until October 27, but we are hard at work on the details! By the way, it's nearly sold out! Only about 3 spots left.
