May 7-9, 2009
Concord, North Carolina
This is just one of my big announcements (so stay tuned for more)....I've been asked by Donna Downey to teach at her Inspired. Artist Workshop in May of 2009 in Concord, North Carolina. I'm so flippin excited!!! (as Donna herself would say) I will be one of six artists teaching two days of workshops. I'm just so immensely honored to be one of the instructors she's chosen to teach at her event next year!!! From what I've heard around blogland, it is a very unique and amazing...and life changing....event. Here's the info she has posted about it on her site...
"Inspired. Artist Workshop is a collaboration of creativity that blends the talents of some of the the most innovative Artists across several different genre’s of craft and hobby. Each Artist has been uniquely chosen and handpicked to offer crafter's of all skill levels and exposures an event that promises to be like no other. Each 3-hour core workshop has been designed with the Inspired. Artist in mind. Become a part of the journey, as each core Artist shares and guides you through their creative process. You will learn to work with new mediums and techniques, offering a tangible perspective into the Artist’s methods. The Inspired. Artist weekend is meant to expose and encourage students to stretch outside their comfort zones and embrace their unique creative potential within.
Each attendee will receive the same Inspired. and creatively charged experience and will attend each 3-hour workshop with all 6 Inspired. Artists. Each workshop will encourage you to incorporate your personal styles and touches resulting in a one of a kind completed art piece that bears your individual signature. The intimate workshop setting allows students to experience and explore creatively in a relaxed environment and walk away with a new perspective on their creative potential.A wide array of optional evening mini-workshops will be offered each night to further students opportunities for Inspiration. Create a schedule that works best for you as you choose from the list of classes with talented guest instructors.If mini-workshops aren't your thing, enjoy an open crop room that is accessible to you throughout the event to relax, craft or hang out with your friends.
Join me in another creative exploration of a lifetime as we challenge ourselves to experience creativity and inspiration in a whole new way."
