We are so fortunate to have an exceptionally talented group of teachers leading the creative workshops on our Adventures in Italy trips. Not surprisingly, a group this talented has found that they can share their inspiration and skills not only through teaching but through writing. Many have blogs and many are also authors of books. I did an informal count and found that those teaching for us have written nearly two dozen books! This includes my good wife who has written two!
Tracie Lyn Huskamp has just published her first book. It is an absolute treasure of helpful techniques, inspired artwork, and great photography. She has given us a copy of the book – Nature Inspired: Mixed Media Techniques for Gathering, Sketching, Painting, Journaling, and Assemblage – to give away. In order to win the book, respond to this blog entry with a comment and your e-mail address. We will draw a name randomly to select the winner.
We will take comments until September 15. We will draw and announce the winner on September 16 on this blog.
Tracie is going to be leading a workshop with her mother-in-law Marylin
Huskamp for us in Orvieto September 12 – 18, 2010. They will be creating art pages, transferring photos taken in and around Orvieto into hand painted images on canvas. And you don’t even have to know how to draw!
You will see from the table of contents in the book all the fun things you can learn from it. The book has wonderful photography in which you can see the unbelievable talent Tracie possesses. What is so exciting for us is that she and Marylin will be bringing their talent to Orvieto to lead their workshop. Marry their skills with the inspiration that is Italy and our sweet Orvieto and you have an amazing week.
Send us a comment so you have a chance at the book. And join us for their class next September. You will be glad you did!
