Mixed Minded May 27-29 Holiday Inn Kitchener

Wow!  Time has passed so quickly and here we are, one weekend before Mixed Minded.  This fabulous art weekend is being offered at the Holiday Inn in Kitchener and features 17 classes by 8 artists.  If this is the first you are hearing about it, check out the link above.  There are classes all weekend, starting Friday night, May 27, with incredibly talented artists (bios are on the website).  I've listed my classes below, but you can also take a class with Donna Funnell, Lois Sander, Carmi Cimicata, and Nancy Donaldson, to name a few.   I know organizer Karen Ellis has quite a few little extras planned for event goers and I am preparing a beautiful range of painted papers and old book pages for my students to use.   I do hope you'll join us, registration is still open and there are a great range of classes to choose from, including jewelery making, mixed media, calligraphy, Zentangles, encaustic and fibre art sessions.
