063: Julie Loves Learning

I’m delighted to bring you another episode of the Adventures in Arting Podcast!  Today’s podcast features a conversation about learning in general and four particular learning experiences — the marbling class I shared in yesterday’s blog post, a lecture on Winslow Homer’s Summer Night (see a bit in this vlog), the connoisseurship dinner at the Museum of Fine Arts (see a bit in this vlog) and then a quilting class I took last weekend (photos below):

Readyforclass-wm

Class started with our instructor, Timna Tarr, sharing some of her quilts:

The picture above is the quilt top that I finished in class.  Kind of a hot mess, but I’m letting it marinate.

I don’t have a lot of photos because of the snow that day…

…most of the students left class early to get home before the roads got too bad.  I was one of the few who stayed the whole day and at the end of the day, I took my little red wagon, and headed home!
