So I mentioned on my last post that I had some exciting news. Well....this year is the big 50 for me and I am getting my wish granted.
My wish was to be able to visit an Art Retreat in the US of A as there aren't that many in Good Old England. I am so HAPPY to announce that my wish is being granted by my darling husband, and in October I am attending the EAST COAST ART RETREAT
I still have to pinch my self, really I am so excited that I am going to have to ease the butterflies between now and October lol. Being 50 has it's benefits :-)
I will be flying in on the 4th October and returning home on the 11th October.
It was so hard to determine which classes I would be taking but I have gone through them all and chosen 5.
on the 6th October I will be taking a class with Stephanie Lee The Book of Selvage
then on the 7th October I have opted for another Stephanie Lee class PAINTING MINDSCAPES
The fact that my 1st too classes are with the same person is actually coincidental, I didn't look at the name of the tutor when choosing classes but rather the subject matter. Another factor was the supplies I would have to bring to the class myself.
On to the 8th October and I will be doing a MAGICAL BOOK OF SHEROES with Lesley Venable. I bought Exploring The Latest Trends in Mixed Media Art Book Vol I when it came out and so I am looking forward to meeting Lesley
Moving on, on the 9th October I will be attending a class with Nancy Lefko MIXED MEDIA FARMERS MARKET
And finally a Woodburning class with Kathleen Nesi BURNT OFFERINGS
I was really excited to see that Nancy and Kathleen were sharing a page with their art in this months Somerset Studio...this came after I had booked the class - happy days.
The flight, hotel and workshops all booked now it is just a matter of being patient.
I will be doing a Tim Holtz workshop here in February so that is something to look forward to.
I am going to create something today, I know not what as yet but I really am going to GO FOR IT!!!
Till next time, Thanks for dropping by - and hey you never know I might meet you at Art Is..You if you attend
Bye for now
