Artist Carrie Schmitt was our next to the last guest instructor of the year.

Carrie is author of Painted Blossoms (another of our book club selections from 2016)

Carrie’s website is full of inspiration.

Here is a screen shot of her instagram feed…you will want to follow her!


Below are some process photos I took of my pieces created in her workshop.  Unfortunately I was too caught up in what I was creating to take photos of the rest of the student’s artwork.  It was an unusual treat to be able to participate in this way.  I loved every moment of it!

Carrie was a delight to have in the studio.  We look forward to having her back next November.  Keep your eyes open, she’ll be back!
