Last week I taught my Pattern and Repetition: Fabric + Encaustic workshop at the beautiful Jeff Hirst studio in Chicago. Jeff and Helen Dannelly showed me the sites of Chicago with an architectural boat tour, the Art Institute of Chicago and many galleries. I had a full workshop with enthusiastic students. One of the best things about teaching and traveling is that I get to experience new places and maintain friendships with other artists and students. Here’s a few shots from my week in Chicago.
