I really enjoy teaching! Workshop topics may include cyanotype, watercolor, tie-dye, gelli-plate printing, or collage. Classes are small so you’ll receive lots of individual attention. Add your name to my email list to receive up-to-date info on current offerings.
Intro to cyanotype
You don't need to be an artist to enjoy making cyanotypes! In this introductory class you’ll learn all the basics of this amazing alternative photographic technique. Using light sensitive chemicals you’ll expose prints in the sun and process them in water. By the time you leave you’ll have some gorgeous 8 x 10 blueprints and the know-how to create more at home!
Lots of beautiful plants are budding and blooming during each season of the year. Let's celebrate the natural world by making botanical blueprints together!

Classes for 2019 are in the works! Right now I’m planning classes in Sacramento, Stockton, Palo Alto, Santa Cruz and Mendocino. Maybe even Arizona! Stay tuned!

"ALL MY HEART" collage class
On Super Bowl Sunday 2018, February 4th, wouldn't you rather be making ART than staring at "the box"? You bet!! Join me and some crafty friends to create your own "All My Heart" collage. Then give it as a special Valentine to your beloved on the 14th.
I'll provide the materials and the know how for you to make your own unique version of this piece. We'll take it easy step by easy step – this is a great workshop for a novice artist.
$80 fee includes materials. Participants will need some basic tools, collage bits, and a finger food to share with the group.
One afternoon only – Sunday, February 4th, 2018 - 1 to 5 p.m.
Class size is limited to 8
This class has passed, but I’m working on a new collage class for March 2019. Subscribe to my newsletter to stay up to date on my latest course offerings!
"Your class was just what I'd hoped for: the mystery of cyanotype revealed! The process was simpler than I expected and the results, even my beginner results, more beautiful than I expected. Thanks, Linda. I hope our paths will cross again."
Charlotte Cooper, Lincoln, CA
"Linda is a fantastic instructor - she's well organized, very knowledgeable, explains and demonstrates every step, provides examples and resources, and makes it all so fun the time just flies by. The process she teaches is mesmerizing, and it's wonderful to observe each experiment as it evolves to its final state. One of the best workshops I have attended - highly recommended!"
Kathleen Noble, Sacramento, CA
“I had such a great time Linda!!! I never knew art could be so much fun! You did such a great job of walking us thru the process. Cannot wait to play around with it some more.”
Margie Ballou, Sacramento, CA
“Well, I have to validate what I already knew; your artistic ability and teaching skill is extraordinary. I had fun, and 'J' even thought my double exposed prints were dope!"
Becky Botelho, Sacramento, CA
“Fantastic class – I had a blast and learned so much! Can’t wait to try this at home… my mind is spinning with possibilities. Thanks again!!”
Judy Jacobs, Sacramento, CA
The emphasis in my workshops is on FUN artsy experimentation without fear! Many years of teaching experience have shown me that this is the best way to learn art, and I look forward to teaching adults and children in my studio.
