Arts Camp 2017 – Go Wild!

And go wild we did.  A fast-paced week filled with all kinds of art.  My class was the BEST, of course.


Time to Register

If you have a 5th or 6th grader who’d like to learn how to create pysanky, here’s a great opportunity.  Every year Oak Hills Church in Folsom, California, hosts a week-long Arts Camp for incoming 1st through 6th graders.  This year I’ll be teaching a class on pysanky and as of today there are only three spots open so don’t wait too long to sign up your student.

The Incredible Eggs 2017 Calendar

I love getting fun mail!  Today’s was especially fun because I received my 2017 Incredible Eggs calendar and I’m proud to report that a collection of my Trypillian style eggs appears on the November page.  This entire calendar is filled with an amazing display of colors and styles by lots of different egg artists from around the world.  Click here to get the purchasing details and to preview each page.  There is even a Canadian version for those of you north of our border.
