According to the Roman calendar, the first day of Autumn in the Northern Hemisphere does not begin this year until September 22. However, Labor Day weekend is upon us, and with that the transition to Fall begins. I also love all the energy that comes with this month.  Back to school, back to a routine and the art world comes alive with opportunitites to see (Rafael Ferrer retrospective this month at Lancaster Art Museum) and study art wherever you are.  I am excited to be teaching 3 workshops this fall at DCAD (Delaware College of Art and Design)  as part of a new series.

Arts and Crafternoons: Sundays at DCAD

Join artists and designers to take part in fun make-and-take activities that get you out and into an artistic environment where you will be inspired to create.  All makers, creators, crafters and those who wish to take a few hours to learn something new are welcome.  Come prepared to experiment and have fun.

No registration fee is required to attend these workshops. 

You can sign up for one or all three.  And there is a 10% discount if you sign up for the whole series (there are 6 in total with three other wonderful artists.)
