Mimi's class in action!

I am thrilled to introduce Mimi and her work here today to you! Her tattooed men, little worlds and adorable owls are my favorite works from her shop.

The Arts and Crafts- OF COURSE!!! Actually, my favorite camp experience was at an Audubon camp and after dinner the director would take us on a walk and identify birds and point out wonders of nature in the dusk.

2. What do you want to share with your students at ARC?
Making an imaginary world. Getting back to playing with color, felt and stitches. Having fun!
