Nine pioneering participants joined me on Sunday to test-drive the decades-old studio space at the San Antonio Art League & Museum.
Our workshop was called “Postcards to Myself” – it’s all about learning to trust the creative process without exactly knowing where it will take you – no preconceived notions allowed.
Here’s a little video of the intuitive work that the participants created during the three-hours session.

The time together was fun and informative. One of the best parts was the feedback everyone gave about the space itself as a venue for workshops and art gatherings. We all are excited about its potential and had plenty of ideas for improving the old studio to make it even better. Our wish list so far . . . .
- lots of skylights!
- another bathroom!
- more storage space!
I’m determined to find funding to make this studio space even more vibrant as it comes back to life. It would be a perfect place for guest artists, small lectures demonstrations, and beginning art classes. It’s already very accessible.
If you’re interested in attending another session of “Postcards to Myself” at the Art League Studio in the next month or so, send me an email. And stay tuned to what’s happening at The Studio of the San Antonio Art League & Museum by signing up for our newsletter here on our website.
Excellent! You’re an awesome force, Lyn!
Kudos to you, Lyn! I look forward to seeing you one of these days and to taking a workshop in thiis amazing space.
I see that skylights are on the wish list. I also thought that skylights would be great in my studio, but found that the light was always changing and I actually did everything to avoid the sunlight and cast shadows. After recently replacingt our roof, we had the opportunity not to replace the skylights. The studio is so much more conducive to making art now. But perhaps there is a way to control or use skylights more effectively.
