The charming Lendon Noe has a new class! I hope you can join us!
Inspired by Lives & Letters
Instructor: Lendon Noe
3-Week Class • 6 Lessons • $85
Class Dates: February 13- March 1, 2018
As artists we are always looking for inspiration. What’s my next project going to be? What is it that I am trying to say with my artwork?
Rather than just wait in hopes of a muse, I often go looking!
One of my sources for inspiration has been in the lives as revealed in the letters of my favorite poets and authors, and in this class I would like to share some of my approaches with you.
It’s not unlike a treasure hunt. A little bit of reading, an interest is sparked, one clue leads to the next, and before you know it you have a whole series of work!
Letters (as in correspondence between two people) will be an underlying theme. We will look at some of my favorites: the Master Letters of Emily Dickinson, Rilke’s Letters to a Young Poet and Letters to a Young Painter. We will give a nod to Nick Bantok and his Griffen and Sabine series. And then John Berger’s correspondence with John Christie, and I have some personal letters that are real treasures and I bet you do, too.
We will be working relatively small, usually no bigger than 9″x 12″. In fact, 4″ squares will be another underlying theme. There will be lots of mixed media, ink, tissue and collage techniques, a plaster surface treatment and some optional sealing wax tips. You should come away with quite a few pieces of finished work, some of which could actually be mailed!
I am so looking forward to working with you.

I so loved Lendon’s last class! She is a wonderful teacher. I look forward to her new class – it looks like so much fun! 😃
We are connected in some way with this class and this energy! There is no doubt that we will extract much poetry from our souls and we will put them out for our enjoyment and that of others …..Thank you Jill, my dear friend!!!

Thank you my dear Ysabel! Your comments bring me joy! I look forward to enjoying the class with you!! ❤️
It is very inspiring!
Hello, dear Lendon, besides Carla Sonheim and Karine Swenson, nobody touched my soul like you. When I see you in the videos, when I hear your voice commenting on your inspirations, I feel so good! It’s as if a distant voice were taking me to a world I was already in. It’s as if some ancestor was inviting me to go in that direction … I thank you so much for all this !!! It is a privilege for me to connect, feel, enjoy, … Sometimes I envy being able to speak good English to communicate with you in a more fluid way and feel closer … It will be very soon!
I am trying to contact you by email, but the address you give does not work.
I love your new banner!!!! It’s gorgeous! (maybe it’s not so new, but I just saw it now)
