August is upon us and the end of summer is near. This month three things are important to me….First, create explore discover art retreat registration opens today August, 1st.(click directly on the bold text to take you to the registration) If you have wanted a weekend away in the sierra nevada mountains to learn about art, creativity and a little female bonding….then this is for you. Join us October 6-9, 2011 in Truckee, California. Our instructors for the inaugral retreat will be:
Denice Barlow Brown of Inkstitch
Marisa Anne of Creative Thursday
Liz Kalloch of Liz Kalloch Design
and myself…Sarah Stevenson of redlinedesign®
This week I will highlight each artist with their biography and their class offerings. During September I hope to bring you interviews with each of them and yes I will share a little more about my design and art background as well. In addition, I will begin to share the journey of this retreat with you. It has been the most positive experience and fills me with a joy and passion that I hope I can express through my words here on the blog.
In addition to these incredible women, my dear friend Kathleen who gave me the nudge nearly a year and half ago to start this blog will be joining me as a guide and fellow creative spirit. She will be coordinating sponsorship opportunities for the retreat and can be reached at: email@example.com. Hopefully I can convince her to share a little diy project with us in September as well and maybe even a peek into her lovely home here in Reno….
So with all that coming in August, I will also be taking a break from regular blog posts and participating in August Break 2011 with Susannah Conway. Each day for the month of August instead of blog posts people from all over the world will be posting photos to their blogs. I’ll be swim mom at the final swim meet of the summer season, traveling to the East Coast with my family and preparing my son for high school and my daughter for 4th grade….so this week enjoy the biographies and definitely enjoy the photos of my August Break….Have a great month everyone….and see you through my photos…
