I hope you all have been well and happy.
I’ve spent the last two weeks prepping my Course Proposals for various teaching possibilities and gathering the data that is ‘me’. THANK YOU . . . to everyone that had such lovely things to say for Letters of Recommendation and all the “Go Delia!” I heard.
I love, love, lovity, love, love teaching . . . almost as much, if not more that creating art.
So before I get too ahead of myself . . . in the month of April, I will be teaching an Introduction to Metal Clay at Majestical Roof! April 3 & 4, 6p – 9p. In the first day we will have an overview of metal clay, the tools to use and how to design (even if you don’t think you can :)). We will actually lay out some work. On evening two we will cover pre-fire finishing, firing and post-fire finishing. I love the Majestical Roof Gallery and the team there is excited to present many classes in this coming year and I am grateful to be a part of.
So register by March 28 for your spot in this really fun class and spend a couple of evenings learning something new and telling jokes with me! Go to my Calendar page, find the date and clink the link. It will take you to Paypal to pay the class fee and then you will receive an email confirmation from me with additional information.
ALSO in April, I will be teaching “Photo Pendant Magic” at Zinnia– that wonderful place for
“contagious creativity”. April 28 & 29 11a – 3p. On day one we will discuss and implement ways to create frames for our assorted pictures . . . they will be kiln fired that night. On day two we will shine up our frames and GET STICKY with a little UV resin and a bit o’ glue GO TO my Calendar page, find the date and clink the link. It will take you to Paypal to pay the class fee and then you will receive an email confirmation from me with additional information. Register by April 23.
As I work out a few details regarding my schedule . . . These are two classes I am teaching locally – Majestical Roof is in Pasadena and Zinnia is in South Pasadena – before June.
I am pleased to announce that beginning this summer, I will be teaching metal clay magic at Glendale Community College, Santa Monica Jr. College and Otis College – all within the Community Education Programs, or what some refer to as Adult Education. The class dates will be posted to my calendar. You will need to go to the sites of the schools to register.
I love, love, lovity, love, love teaching . . . almost as much, if not more that creating art!
I do have sales appearances coming up: March 31, I will be showing and selling at Majestical Roof; 88 N Fair Oaks Ave # 102, Pasadena, CA 91103-3632 (map link). There’s more . . . check out the Calendar! I’m very proud of my new Calendar. Honestly, anytime I can master adding a new wizbang to the site that makes life easier for all, it’s like New Years!
Recently I got turned on the a book by Dr. Robert Anthony, “Beyond Positive Thinking”. In the early pages he describes a concept of the ” . . . the river of life . . .” and now I paraphrase ‘you can go to the river of life with a teaspoon, some may go with a cup . . . a bucket . . . a barrel even . . . the river is there and will always flow’. It’s about what we think we can accept and going for the results we want in our life.
I’m headed to the river with a barrel, drinking it in . . . and I am always ready to share!
Go make something! Have a great week!
All my best, Delia
