This was my first year at Art Unraveled, and I had so much fun!! The students were great, super creative, and a blast to be with. I met other teachers, some of whom I know in cyberspace, including Jane La Fazio (one of the Sketchbook Challenge sisters) and Ingrid Dijkers, whose gorgeous art dolls appear in my book Adventures in Mixed Media. I also met Gail Russakov, who introduced herself to me via e-mail beforehand, and was a great help in getting me oriented to Art Unraveled.
Without further ado, here is some eye candy from the experience:
A couple of collages from Deborah:
One from Meredith, Deborah's daughter:
The above collages were done in my Scribble Collage class, in which we painted papers all morning and made collages all afternoon.
In New Dimensions in Collage we made house-shaped dimensional collages using foam core. Here are a few samples:
Ingrid's house in progress. LOVE that red!
Debbie's house piece:

This is a super well-organized event, so everything ran smoothly. The venue, the Embassy Suites, was luxurious and also very affordable for Art Unraveled participants. If you are looking for a retreat for 2012, consider this one.
