Oh my gosh... this looks like such a great class, michelle. all of them do. i love all of the pictures. i've got to find a way to go next year. i love your new banner too. so cute.

Terri Nickelson-Williams

OMG! This is just too much fun! I would love to take one of your classes. Any chance you'll be in Portland, Oregon any time soon? LOL! Love the little jointed dolls!


Oh I agree Michelle my belle... I too think you should teach that workshop locally... I'd sign up for sure!! :-)


I had an absolute blast making my little look alike doll and my mutt (or bunny) in a wagon :)...your a great teacher Michelle...and always so inspiring to be around. btw...portland art & soul is a GO- hub gave the thumbs up!!! YAY!

Maybe you feel like you didnĀ“t take enough pictures, but the ones presented here are awesome! 1. Your camera must be great. 2. YOU must be great! 3. The set-up looks so good! I use gif-pics now, to save space, but the colors suck compared to this.
Anyway. Your class looks like so much fun, and I am just rambling away on the picture-quality desperately trying to forget how much I regret not taking this class with you! The boxes and everything in them look amazing!


These are so adorable!

Courney S

These are great! I am an aspiring art teacher so I immediately think that these would make an awesome ceramics type lesson. I really enjoy looking at all your stuff. I LOOVE the artist journals too!


When will you offer this class locally??? I wanna take it... those dolly's are adorable!

Denise Wagner

I think you should bring ArtFest on the road. Come to the bay area. PLEASE!!!
