Happy July 1st everyone and Happy 4th of July weekend. Today I am bringing some really exciting news from redlinedesign®. We have just launched a new website for an art retreat that I will be hosting called Create Explore Discover. The retreat will be held from October 6-9th, 2011 at the Cedar Sport Hotel in Truckee, California. This has been my main focus for the last month, so I apologize for the lack of posting on the blog but I wanted to make sure that we got everything set for the launch and am working feverishly with some really awesome artists to teach us at the retreat.
So first all, to access the new site: createexplorediscover (www.createexplorediscover.com); here you will find general information about the retreat including: the location, the schedule, accomodations, class information and contact information; class and instructor information is being updated and finalized over the next few weeks and registration will open on July, 11, 2011. At that time you will be able to make class selections, register and begin planning a special fall weekend getaway in the Sierra Mountains. Registration will be processed through our secure paypal site and space will be limited so that we can keep the retreat as intimate and focused as possible.
Who will be teaching at createexplorediscover?
Our headline teacher and keynote speaker for the retreat will be:
Marisa Haedike of Creative Thursday. I have spent over a year following and taking courses from Marisa and I am so excited to share her with you all. Her stories and her vision of art and creativity are so genuine and real that I know you will enjoy her as much as I have.
Our instructors include:
Liz Kalloch of Liz Kalloch Design. Another incredible artist that I have been following and working with since April, 2010. If you have been following the blog you know that Liz is the leader of The Meetup that I participate in monthly. Liz is an incredible writer and artist and I know her vision of creativity will completely inspire you.
Sarah Stevenson of redlinedesign®: yes…..I will also be teaching at the retreat and have a few really exciting things up my sleeve. I will reveal them as the next week unfolds and can’t wait to share my little piece of Lake Tahoe with you.
There are also several other artists in the works and they will be revealed on the blog as we finalize information with them.
In addition to the artists I will have many people working with me to ensure the retreat is a full success. The first person I want to introduce is my dear friend Kathleen. (If you have followed me from the beginning you know Kath is the one that convinced me to start a blog–so look where a year and half has taken me…..) Kathleen will be working by my side to ensure that the retreat runs smoothly, sponsors are taken care of and will be adding her special touch to event and class details. she can be reached at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
The second person is Jo Klima of The Darling Tree. Jo is currently working with me to create an incredible logo for the event. We are really close to completing it and will share it here on the blog when it is finished. Jo has also just finished creating new blog buttons and logo pieces for the shop but I will introduce those in a separate post….
So there you have it, an intimate art retreat and fall getaway in the mountains above Lake Tahoe…..hmmm, care to join to me?
Happy 4th of July……
