Kathy Sandler's Furniture Painting Workhop

Last Thursday, Kathy Sandler who has been a featured artist in my shop since I opened hosted a workshop at Thea's Interiors in the Pearl District of downtown Portland. I went over to take a few photos while everyone was playing and experimenting with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint and Waxes.
Kathy is such a great teacher. She has a remarkable sense of the history of paint as well as an artist's perspective on color, texture, and shading. Her background in Mixed Media as well as her love of color and collage brings insight and passion to her love of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint and her various ways of interpretation.
We had a variety of paint colors available and everyone created unique inspiring pieces.

Kathy will continue to teach at Thea's and she has so many wonderful ideas to share so stay tuned and I will feature some photos of Kathy's next amazing workshop. I want to take her next class if I can manage to break away from my store for a few hours!

Hi Phyllis! I'm coming over from Amanda's blog- I wanted to put my name in for the Annie Sloan class giveaway! I met you at Junk Salvation. :) I bought a little pot of Antoinette from you.
Fun looking through your blog and seeing all the fun stuff!
