Last Saturday, September 28, 2013, I led a workshop at Delaware Art Museum in Wilmington, Delaware. They had such a good response to the workshop I did there this spring that they asked me to return in the fall! I love teaching there because of several things: 1- they have a very nice classroom space to teach in, 2- there is a lovely sculpture garden with trees, flowers and other interesting features to journal about and 3- the opportunity for my students to journal inside the museum - a real treat!
This was a one day workshop and I took these photos during the course of the day, that will serve as a "Photo Essay" for the exercises and experiences my student journalers enjoyed.
