Great class yesterday/July class schedule

Greetings everyone!
Unfortunately Saturday's class at Santa Cruz was cancelled but my Texture for Collage Artists class yesterday was awsome! It's a gruelling 5 hour class that always runs over time into the six hour. But this class produced some unbelievable texture samples. Unfortunately I was so busy just trying to leave before the shop closed (so that the staff wouldn't have to stay overtime) that I don't have any pictures to share with you today--sigh--. Maybe next time
I also wanted to post my July class schedule.
