This was the most amazing workshop I have ever attended. Faculty: Floyd Cooper, Eric Rohmann, Kelly Ann Murphy, and Ruth Sanderson with Special Guest: David Weisner, Donna Jo Napoli, and Neal Porter. The interaction within the group included the faculty, and the hands-on demonstrations truly helped everyone to grow as artists and storytellers. Each of the presenting artists worked in different real media: watercolor washes, oil washes, mixed media, printmaking, and shared time saving tips that lend well to publishing. Even though I am currently working digitally, I wasn’t going to deny myself the opportunity to dive back into real media and traditional art techniques. In fact, several times I was able to reexamine my own digital techniques.
