Where in the World Are My Workshops?

My Fall workshop schedule has begun and I am home for a couple weeks in between some international destinations. Where has October gone? Keep reading to find out some NEW workshops in 2020!
The last weekend of October I taught at the most amazing event in Punta del Este, Uruguay: Paper Fest! Let me tell you, this was an over the top, extravagant 4 day weekend of partying and playing with paper and pens. 6 international instructors taught classes to 120 women from Latin America. I made many new friends and felt so warmly welcomed.
After the event, I spent a day in Montevideo, the capital of Uruguay, and then headed to Buenos Aires, Argentina for 6 glorious days. If you want artistic inspiration, just walk around the streets of any city in South American and take in the street art.  Incredible!
I went to a Tango show the last night in Buenos Aires, and it was fantastic. Now I want to take dancing classes! LOL. The movements, grace, and agility of these dancers is astonishing.
October 22 was my pub date of my new book The Art of Watercolor Lettering! I'm so happy with the way it turned out, and there's nothing quite like the feeling of seeing it out in the world....please keep sharing your adventures in watercolor with me!

Thanksgiving and Christmas seasons make me feel full of gratitude...and this is a beautiful word to write in a bouncy style. Practice with your large brush tip pens, like the Dream pens, and small brush tips, like the Kelly Creates Multicolor Small Brush pens.  (NOTE: This worksheet is available on my website as a free download.
