I’d heard the rumors, the industry gossip and read the countless articles about super stylist and all around creative genius, Megan Morton but after finally meeting her this past Saturday I can only say one thing – it’s all true, the woman is awesome. Like really awesome. Girl crush awesome.
I arrived at The School on Saturday morning a bit early (such a the eager student) and ready to tackle my first Photoshop class. I was met by Megan, decked out in a bright yellow jacket, who gave me such a warm welcome and immediately made me feel comfortable. She and her team effortlessly styled the room with vintage teacups, bright yellow flowers and crocheted blankets to keep us warm and toasty. It set the tone for the rest of the day and no detail was overlooked.
The class was small and friendly and our teacher for the day, Simone Madigan did a wonderful job of leading us newbie’s through the ins and outs of Photoshop, stopping only for coffee breaks and to eat the most amazing food prepared by Kitchen By Mike. On our breaks I made a mad dash to finally check out Koskela next door and secretly made plans to never leave and live in this creative compound for the rest of my life. It’s that good.
The class was great and the experience was wonderful. If you have the chance to do something for yourself go, do it, now. Being in a creative place, learning and challenging myself was something I needed, the perfect springboard to keep moving in the right direction.
