Wonderful Whidbey

I have the fortune to be teaching right now at the Pacific NorthWest Art School in the town of Coupeville on Whidbey Island off the coast of Washington state. I first taught here in 2013 and am thrilled to return to the beauty, serenity and magic of Whidbey.

The school has some incredible, upcoming courses from artists such as Roxanne Evans Stout, Jill K. Berry, Cathy Taylor, and in a collaborative workshop -- John Arbuckle, Terry Garret and Brian Kasstle.

 The first class I taught this past weekend was a 2-day, mixed media painting workshop called Cover to Cover. It was all about the layers and making creative messes.

Lovely place...but it looks too cold for me. The evidence of your class is testament to your teaching skills Seth!
