Home is Where the Hamsa Is

I was so excited to teach my first Meetup class in my new studio.  I wasn't sure how the space would work out, but it was splendid!  The subject of the class was home blessings using the Hamsa Stencil from Stencil Girl.

You can read all about the symbolism of the Hamsa here, and see step out photos for how I created these Hamsa Canvases on the Stencil Girl Talk blog here.  

Here are my fantastic students playing with the Hamsa Stencil and other stencils from Stencil Girl.  Each of their canvases came out so beautifully!

A big thank you to ace photographer Samy Cordero for capturing all the smiles and mark making!
