I have been very fortunate this year in being asked to teach a workshop started up by two wonderful ladies. Diane Bennett and Joy Naylor launched a series of summer workshops, http://www.buddingartideas.com/. This will take place in the beautiful University of Michigan Matthaei Botanical Gardens. There are several artists teaching various media. This is a great opportunity to get away and create in the midst of 200 acres of solitude. You can see my workshop page at www.buddingartideas.com/dianna-soisson-workshop.html.
I'm also preparing for my one and only art show this year in my hometown Kane, Pennsylvania for the Art in the Wilds. This may be a small town but they really know how to treat an artist! Call me biased but they display the best old-fashioned hospitality around! By the way, ask any alumni from there and they'll recommend a Texas Hot from Texas Hot Lunch. They bring back so many fond memories!
