Art A Whirl is THE event in NE Minneapolis. The Northeast Minneapolis Arts District has over 600 artists open their studios the 3rd weekend in May every year.  The Northeast Minneapolis Arts Association organizes this event and rides herd on all the artists to clean up their studios and throw open their doors.  (We take showers and everything...) 

Layl will be offering millefiore Make & Takes again this year.   For only $3 you can do a "mini class" and make your own Silly Milly.  Layl's favorite thing about Art-a-Whirl is showing everyone her entire art process; so stop in to see how all the magic happens! Tour Josh's studio and see his new Mid-century tile line and help choose names for the colors.

Layl Goes Back
to the Drawing Board
When I was in art school I did lots of figure drawing from life but that was a long time ago!  In the past few years I have been gradually getting back into drawing so when a friend of mine said she was thinking about doing some figure drawing I thought I'd try it too. Now I've been to the drawing co-op at the Traffic Zone twice and I can't believe how much I like it!  (And how much I improved in such a short amount of time.)
Millefiore Schizzo- "Garden of Contemplation"
Now where will these take me?  Well- I have some ideas.  In fact I have already done one small piece where I have transferred one of my drawings onto clay and built up a flowery background.  I'm calling these new pieces that mix my sketches with my millefiore, "Millefiore Schizzi."  Schizzi means sketches in Italian and the millefiore is originally an Italian word that means "thousand flowers."  
    I hope you'll stop by at Art-a-whirl, or an art fair this summer, and tell me what you think of this new series of work.


 Polymer Clay-Gallery Style
Clay Squared and thePolymer Clay Guild of Minnesota is sponsoring an amazing gallery show of polymer clay art from all over the country at Flow Art Space in St. Paul.  This juried show will feature some of the finest polymer clay work in the country.
