Art Retreat


Above is my interpretation of the class design.



Left is one of the canvases that DJ used to show us techniques in class. I bought it from her after the class.


What a FANTASTIC weekend! It's taken me 2 days to get over it. The Tutors were senational - YAHHHHH to Stephanie Lee, DJ Pettit and Bernie Berlin.






I just LOVED the face painting. DJ is such a gifted teacher. It certainly showed when 23 out of 24 pupils finished the class with stunning pieces. As for the 24th student - she decided to stick with her 'style'. I don't know why she bothers spending all this money on classes - she never listens to the teachers or seems open to learning!

I did a face painting class with a different American tutor last year. She was a FANTASTIC artist but in my opinion a crap teacher!

Great post and I did get a giggle at your tongue in cheek comment re: class with DJ. She's a very patient and wonderful teacher.

Your finished piece looks gorgeous. I must photograph mine and maybe put a picture on my blog too.
