Last weekend I had the pleasure to teach 3 workshops at J.P. Morgan in Luxembourg. I was invited by the Social Committee and it was so much fun. It was an amazing crowd of people- very international and with lot’s of languages involved. I was sticking to my two- English and German…my attempt to learn Luxembourgish was poor 😉
We had a really great room…the canteen- which was PERFECT for a workshop – lot’s of light, lot’s of tables, lot’s space, lot’s of yummie snacks 😉
The first class was my Yawp PanPastel Class on Saturday afternoon and we dabbled into a lot of techniques and the students loved playing with the different yummie colors and techniques.
Heating guns were used in wild west style to get the techniques rolling 😉
Sunday morning I taught the Über*Media Acrylic Paint Class first. We covered lots of techniques and made a big pile of background pages for art journals. Not many pictures here- obviously I forgot to take pictures
Next up was the Season /Texture Canvas Class. It was awesome. Most of the students never worked with Acrylic Paints..some even stated to never have held a paint brush in their hand (hard to believe- I know) and they had so much creative fun!
Everyone was very open to try out things, but the best was…they had no finished picture in their head when they started, which made them more open to try new things – I loved that.
So we had a little Monet inspiration going on here
and some Pearl Jam inspired texture galore here
and some rainbow light fun here
and awesome texture flower bouquet inspiration here
some real awesome flower application/transformation here
beautiful text textured flowers here
and a whimsical flower spin here
Here is a group shot with the happy ladies- some had to leave earlier- so there is a lot missing on the photo
Thank you so much everyone who took the classes- it was a wonderful weekend with you and you inspired me a lot too
Thank you also to the J.P. Morgan Social Committee for inviting me and to Lydia for inviting me to her home and taking more than good care of me ! You are fab!
I will show you some of my sightseeing pictures in Luxembourg next…what a beautiful little country!
BTW – if you are interested in having me come and teach at your event, store or for a certain private or company group – please feel free to contact me !
Have a gorgeous day
