Kristian Beverly was originally scheduled to teach the halter making workshop at this year's BreyerWest. A last minute schedule change forced her to cancel, and Erin asked if I would be willing to take her place. I'd had a great experience teaching this workshop in 2016, so I immediately agreed. it wasn't until much later that I actually looked at the BreyerWest schedule and realized that I had signed myself up for nearly nine straight hours of intense arting. Oy.
Suffice it to say, I was a little less fresh and eager to learn at the beginning of Kylee's workshop than I had been for Maggie's.
Fortunately, it didn't matter much. Kylee provided excellent instructional materials and patiently helped and encouraged everyone in the class...even those of us who couldn't make it through the workshop without bloodshed!

I'll be honest. I think he's okay, but don't really like him. I know I could have done better if I hadn't been so tired.
Despite that, I'm really glad I participated in this workshop. In the same way that I plan to paint another Chipsa, I also intend to use Kylee's system to attempt another, better medallion. Thank you, Kylee for sharing your methods. I know it didn't show, but I really did enjoy your class!
