I know I’ve posted about this wonderful adventure in years past, and, each year I visit, it’s newer and fresher and more inspiring than ever.

This year I’ll tell you everything I learned about silk painting, sculptural wood carving, mixed media, felting, illuminated manuscript illustration, freedom to draw exercises, woodcarving printing, and much, much more.

And, if I can do it, so can you. 😀

So grab a cup of tea and join me for this year’s extravaganza.

      Hi Gill! I wish I was closer to places like Norfolk or Cornwall. There seem to be such wonderful artistic communities around and they are never in OXON 🙁 Except for Art in Action. 😀 But isn’t it wonderful? Hope you got into the classes. Let me know.

      It’s true Carole! Now I want to buy all the supplies and keep going. 😀 (Missing the drawing challenges.) Big hugs to you over there on the West Coast. Hope you’re having a lovely summer.
