Amelia Island Collage Workshop

Day One

We had a great time on Amelia Island this past weekend dedicating our time to learning collage. The Amelia Island Artists Workshop Inc were wonderful hosts! And if you have never been to Amelia Island and historic Fernandina Beach you are missing a hidden gem in Florida.

Shown here is Center Street at the center of downtown, and the front of the Amelia SanJon Gallery, which is home of the Workshops and will be home to a featured show of my artwork now through January. The whole gang (almost) posed for a class photo.

Sandra Baker-Hinton, one of the partners of the Workshops is also a volunteer Turtle Patrol and she invited us all down to the beach on Friday night to experience the excavation of a nest, in hopes that there might still be some live babies in there who could use a helping hand. Unfortunately we did not come across any live turtles, but we did get to see all the hatched out egg shells and one little guy who did not make it.


  1. So glad am I hear this was a great experience. From the pictures of the group and the area I have a feeling it may inspire some new work out of you!

  2. Hi Elizabeth,
    I've been following you and catching up with your blog. LOVE your work! So sad I just missed this 3 day workshop :( Any chance you'll be doing another 3 day workshop?


thank you for taking the time to read and comment! :)
