katie came by for the next workshop and we got to take a photo together in the little dame tattoo shop!
the evening workshop was small and so much fun! one of the ladies made this papier mache dog and glued googly eyes on him when she got home.i finally got to meet the amazing, adorable tijuana illustrator itzel!! @yayitzel. she signed up for the 3rd workshop on sunday morning.there were 9 of us. all the tables were spaced, everyone wore a mask and the doors were wide open for air. each had their own supplies so there was no sharing or touching. i enjoyed the mother and young daughter above who made a giraffe, churro and ruth bader ginsburg crown! the 10 year old was even wearing an rbg mask, so cool!!!need!!!i could share many of the pieces made in these workshops but this is my favorite because it started with the intention of being a pet cat and then morphed into a dog and finally the creator turned it into this unicorn! this joyous flexibility, embracing the unknown and making the best of it while learning is something we all need to have as we head into this uncertain new future.

A full class! My Papier mache college teaching gig was a huge success at Pasadena Art Center College of Design. I've been posting most of my stories on Instagram these days since it's a more direct way to document in these fast moving times ... but I'll try to keep the blog alive this year! Maybe the corona virus will slow things down with all the cancellations/closures and people will go back to drinking tea and reading blogs! Ha haaa! Stay well and enjoy this little yellow bootie dude,blue deer, animal band, stretchy calico cat and cake. I always wish I had taken more photos of the student art. There are too many good ones that got away
