On an unrelated note - I just posted this info on the Warner blog which was still sporting the "Spring" logo! Oh dear - and it's after Labor Day, how embarrassing! So I updated it to my Halloween Warner Logo - which I am rather proud of. Even if you aren't interested in Warner info, go take a quick look... it looks cool, right?!OK, back to the regularly scheduled posting...I went to this workshop a few weeks ago and found it to be incredibly helpful. It was a very small group so it worked more like a roundtable discussion. We were able to bring up our own, individual concerns and experiences.The material covered applied to gallery artists, crafters, illustrators, and Zentangle teachers.If you are in the area and able to make it - it is definitely worth your time!And there are snacks - yum!
