I just returned from teaching in Minneapolis, Minnesota. What a beautiful city!

Often, when I teach at a multi-day retreat, I hardly get out of the hotel and the classrooms, but this time, I got out and saw some of the sights.

Don't miss the Walker Art Center, the Minneapolis Art Center and the Open Book. All fabulous, inspiring art-filled spaces!

I'll be teaching Abstract Collage (using the gelli plate) at Art Is You in Stamford, Connecticut on Friday, October 9th. Click here for more info.

  3. Jane this is great and so inspiring! I'm thinking of trying out a similar lesson with elementary school students where first they use gelli prints to just make a bunch of patterns then cut them up an assemble them to create mosaics.
