Exploring new art techniques and making it work with your own individual genre is intoxicating! Once again I sat around a table filled with 6 women, art supplies, lively chatter, excitement and delicious brownies. Robin Dudley Howes our instructor was filled with mixed media and wax techniques. What a delight! What started out as a plain bottle just kept getting more interesting as I added paper, rub paint, coffee stained cheese cloth, wire, rusted chain, words, milagros and more.... I was thrilled to learn this wax application and am anxious to incorporate it in my art. Thanks again to Robin..it was a pleasure meeting you and new artists at the little shop in Tustin called Whimzy.

Today I thought I would treat myself to an art class...I am so thrilled that I did. It was a mixed media shadow box and soldering class taught by Cheryl Waters and Rita Reade at the charming little store in Tustin called Whimzy. A group of six women sat around a beautifully decorated table filled with gifts and chocolate cupcakes. The process of creating the mixed media shadow box was filled with exciting chatter. Cheryl was a dream instructor filled with lots ideas and techniques....Rita another dream instructor taught the soldering with much patience and knowlegde. It was refreshing to see all the different art pieces that were created, meeting other artist and simply spending my day creating art. Stop in to see Whimzy...it is a little gem. VintageWhimzy.com
