I'd love to be part of a group where we are all pursuing personal development in a fun supporting atmosphere. As I am fairly new to the are, I'm also seeking friendship with people of common interest. I'm excited to learn from others and expand my exposure.
I've taken several classes, worked from videos, and most recently have taken five online classes. Three of these were art journaling classes, and the one I'm currently taking is in using Inktense watercolor pencils and other water soluble pencils and crayons. A great class!
Yes...barring life's little curveballs! I live on Queen Anne so it sounds as if I'm fairly close to the meetings.
My name is Laurel Shelton and I have a lifelong love of art and needlework. My career was as a seamstress for a group of interior designers. Since retirement, I have actively pursued drawing, painting, encaustic work...all more loose than sewing.
They were wonderful. I was made to feel so welcome and the attendees were a grand bunch with interesting projects and skill levels. I will definitely return.
