“My Art Play shop with Meredith today was enthralling, pure joy and allowed my imagination to prance and sparkle! I can’t wait to return to the Magical Creation process tomorrow back at Monte Sueños! Everyone is having so much fun while we all create under Meredith’s encouraging and energetic spirit as a Master! The materials she so open heartedly shares range from incredible homemade plant fibre papers to sands from the Nile, Gold leaf, crystals, feathers, lace and a variety of textures! We are literally dancing in joy as we all create and admire each other’s masterpieces in progress. I couldn’t appreciate the method of teaching more if Monet himself arose and gave me a private session! Meredith’s imagination and light encompass us all in her Play
