I’m wrapping up my week at the John C.Campbell Folk School today with one last class then a student exhibit of the work all classes have accomplished this week. Honestly I’m exhausted and so are my students. (Don’t worry Constance; I won’t publish your infamous nap unless you publish those videos on You Tube!)

There are so many images to publish I don’t know where to start. I think I’ll just put some of the most interesting ones online and let them speak for themselves. Enjoy!

Ashley’s birds

Bonnie’s encaustic scratch board


Brenda’s ceramic bowl finished with wax

Linda Brenda

A couple of students were trying their skills at copying art work from a catalog with beautiful results. Linda’s work is first then Brenda’s.


Constance made it to some larger pieces on the last day

Peggy Phyllis Jenny

That’s it for now, I have to get to class. More soon!
