Tuesday:) Never Stop Learning

20 Sep

“Never stop dreaming, never stop believing,

never give up,

never stop trying, and

never stop learning.”

― Roy T. Bennett, The Light in the Heart

*****************

Pretty much every local artist and future artist in the McKinney area has taken a class with Maribeth Jagger. Not only is she an amazing instructor, but she is a funny  talented creative friend. Maribeth hosted a mixed media collage workshop at the Heard Craig Carriage House this morning. It was sooooo much fun. The 2 1/2 hour workshop slithered into a four hour art extravaganza followed by a two hour lunch.

We worked with paints, glazes, inks, stamps, stencils, scrapers and well, everything but the kitchen sink. Wait…I think there was a kitchen sink involved.

A few examples of her work above.


Lynne always comes up with the most spectacular designs.


I didn’t finish mine, but I’ll get to it soon…I hope.

My background below. This was accomplished with many layers of acrylic, scraped around with an old credit card, then some transparent paints, different stencils, and inks.


What I have so far.


After our long lunch, guess where I had to stop?


Oh no, one more art medium to work on. Always learn something new. I’m just a beginner, but I love the journey.
