Inspirational Retreat ad we posted in Somerset Studios has finally arrived at my door step today. I could hardly wait to get the publication inside and find the ad along with all the classes posted in the Gatherings section.
We have such a fabulous line up of artists all the way through August. I know that once the classes begin and the word gets out what a wonderful experience it was, it will be the place to come to for inspiration from a favorite artist teachers.
Patience has never been a strong part of my personality and this takes patience as with anything new. It's been a dream of mine since it's conception to make each workshop a unique, comfortable, inspiring, and a personally rewarding experience.
I've been to many workshops over the years and have felt intimidated, closed up creatively, cramped for personal space and rushed among other things. Knowing what I would want at a workshop gives me opportunity to prepare a weekend where teacher and student feel that the exchange of give and take is genuine and complete and that each person is getting everything they signed up for and more. I see so many possibilities and can only hope that the dream becomes a reality. As they say..."Build it and they will come".
