Ceramics, Hiking and Inspiration

View a YouTube, creative ways to incorporate treasured maps with Zentangle® art.

Santa Fe, NM is an inspiring place to visit… wonderful artists, cutting edge art, and inspiration in every direction. This Spring I had the opportunity to teach Zentangle® at Tangle U, hold a sketch journaling class at Guadalupe Stamp store, and take a week long ceramics workshop from.

Debra Fritts showed us her special techniques

Amazing ceramics by Debra Frittz (debrafritts.net) caught my eye when I was in Abiqui, NM last year. I LOVE her women, animal spirit, and totem sculptures. Debra shared her secrets for sculpting and glazing clay.

Students sculpting faces, totems and creatures.

I love the enthusiastic students who attend Debra’s class. Each project was unique. It is always fun to see how student artists add their own touch to art.

Woman with spikey hair and an owl totem.

My favorite projects were a large face, a woman with a bunny, a sculpture with my three sisters, and small personal totems.

Enthusiastic students taking a morning hike.

The smiles on the faces of students started every day on a happy note. Up early to go on a short hike in the New Mexico wilderness… perfect inspiration for a day of art.

A perfect heart rock – about 200 pounds.

On our hike we found a giant heart rock. It was balanced in a canyon to be admired by hikers.
