Artfest 12. Thanks for the memories

This trip is going to be a whirlwind. Just wrapped up five wonderful days @ Artfest and now I headed to Shanghai for my day job. (Yes, Shanghai, that will be another post, I promise.)  The trip to Port Townsend, via Seattle was amazing. The experience of ARTFEST is something I will never forget. I wanted to thank all my students who gave it their all in the class room last week. They all made AMAZING work! And I am so proud of them.

If you have never been to Artfest, it is an annual art retreat held at an old fort in Port Townsend, WA. Set right on the ocean and full of history, has served as home base for this event for 13 years. Sadly, this year is the last year that Artfest will be held. A bittersweet experience for me, as it was the first time I had ever attended.

In consideration of  time: I am writing from gate 102 at the San Francisco International Airport; patiently waiting for my flight to board. I'll wrap up and share share some photos of the trip. There would have been more, but the camera has been acting up lately.
