What happens when you combine eleven homeschoolers, four moms, two hot plates, and a ton of oil pastels? A colorful explosion of amazing creativity. The other day I had the privilege of hosting a group of the nicest people in my home studio to enjoy a morning of experimenting with oil pastels and other media. We ended the day with a shared lunch, sweet treats, and pleasant conversation over cups of tea. Thanks, moms, your kids were great. I had a wonderful time.
It was a tight squeeze, but nobody complained.
A variety of expression...
Melting pastels on the hot plate was very popular. I love sharing this technique.

Gorgeous sage and apple cake made by Miss Fiona (a.k.a. Phyllis ; a.k.a. Lyceria). And let's not forget the delicious chocolate chip scones, peanut butter chocolate thingys, and homemade applesauce. You guys spoiled me. Thanks so much.
