Last November I was invited to attend the 3rd AYLA Art Symposium in Aqaba, Jordan to work with twenty-two other artists from different countries for a ten day event. We also had the opportunity to explore Amman, Aqaba, Petra and the Red Sea. It was a great opportunity to make new friends and to exhibit in another Arab country. I thoroughly enjoyed myself and I hope to return to Jordan some time soon.
