Here are photos from Bluette Meloney's "Le Bon Marche" class offered at the 2013 Academy. An IGMA Artisan, she teaches a number of incredibly simple and unique faux finishes and trompe l'oeil painting techniques in her workshops. Bluette will be a dealer at this year's show. Be sure to stop by her table.

"The Academy classroom for my workshop is the best I've had in thirty years of instructing," says Bluette Meloney.

"The workshop space was divine--airy, big and light," says instructor Bluette Meloney. Pictured left-to-right with students Karen Connel, Judith Myers and Yuliya Klem.
