Art Workshops, Classes & Retreats


"3-Day Art Retreat"
June 7-9, 2019
 

This is summer art camp for adults. We create art, friendships and learn exciting new processes and techniques. A lot of action happens in these days. It’s like a semester of art school but even more fun. All supplies are provided, and the class size is limited to 8 participants. We can take impromptu side journeys because whatever we may need is at hand. The small class size makes for a lot of individual attention. I will be incorporating some of the exercises from my book, Awakening Your Creative Soul, into the experience.

Join me in Santa Fe for six days of Folk-art bliss. We will spend our first day getting acquainted with the beautiful surroundings and culture of Santa Fe and spend the afternoon at the Museum of International Folk-Art, home to over 130,000 folk-art inspired objects from over 100 countries. During our visit to the Folk-Art museum we will gather ideas and become inspired to continue on the journey to creating a one-of-a-kind piece of art. For the next five days, I will guide you through the design process, specifically, how to choose color, layering and embellishing so you learn how to make an idea come to life, so you will have the confidence to finish your folk-art original.
