Making Art Together

One Hundred (and One!) Posts!

Hey! We just realized we've shared 100 posts since we started this blog last June. To celebrate, I'd like to share some a small percentage of the many beautiful things made in the Studio since then .

For those of you who have started or are about to start a new school year next week, I hope these images help you begin the year on a happy note. READ MORE

Scenes From a Summer Institute

Rather than repeat the info here, I'm hoping to entice you to participate in the learning yet to take place by sharing images from our last institute Landscapes of Literacy (2010). READ MORE
