We drove in since we live in Los Angeles and it's only a couple of hours away but, boy oh boy was it hot and a little dangerous considering it was monsoon season. Um, I think we may have missed the memo on that one but, the ladies in our Las Vegas class made us forget all about the danger lurking outside with their awesome artistic skills.
Many of the artists in this workshop had previously taken a workshop with either Ronnie or myself and came in from Arizona, Northern and Southern California (This makes me very happy because it shows me how far you are willing to go to learn and potentially work with me), Utah and New Mexico! A couple of ladies drove 10 hours to take this class and we were so glad they came because we had no idea there was a huge group interested in having us bring a workshop to your area. If you live in New Mexico please get in touch with Theresa Montano if you would like to take a workshop with Ronnie Mena and myself. Every single person in this workshop worked so hard and had so much fun. It was a great day but, as always exhausting at the end. If you ever leave our workshop with a ton of energy then, you must have been sleeping in class hahaha.
We want to thank Pamela who hosted the class in her home and provided some refreshments for all of the students and even had a few students spend the night. That was very kind of you.
I also want to say a big thank you to my awesome comadre and lady boss Samantha Summers who opened her home to us and took us out to some of the best dining spots in town! If you ever go to Las Vegas you need to check out SkinnyFats. Oh man that place was so bomb! She couldn't make it to the workshop but, sent my Goddaughter Valerie instead who got to be the first model in class. whoop whoop. She is so beautiful inside and out.
And last but, not least. THANK YOU to all of the ladies who registered for this workshop. You all did such great work and gave your all to every lesson being taught. We promise there will be more to come soon.
Please enjoy some photos from our workshop below.
Our next Sugar Skull Workshop is in Seattle, Washington on July 26th.
Hope to see you there!
