Artists and Writers Workshop

Artist's and Writer's Group

The 2014 Artist's and Writer's Workshop has been an amazing adventure.  It was such an honor to lead a group of talented creative people- to all who participated, I can't thank you enough for investing your time into growing artistically together this summer. 

Everybody Needs A Little Inspiration...

Above are a collection of highlights from the workshop.  Each week, I designed graphics to stage the upcoming session.  Each week we also had a "take-away" for those who came-- I chose a quote that related to the material and designed a photo-sized piece around it.  Those who wanted one could hang it as inspiration in their studios!

The End... Or the Beginning? 

A mountain retreat was the grand finale to the workshop.  We enjoyed a glorious August day together in Estes Park, CO, with presentations, time to write and reflect, and a commencement ceremony.  I especially want to thank Dustin Groeneman and Mark Silvers for their marvelous presentations on various aspects of Art and its wider context in the life of the community.  Special thanks also to Carol Myers, Theresa Bain, and Sheri Carmon for all of your help behind the scenes, and of course, to Jonathan Myers, who was instrumental in making the retreat and the workshop possible!

Thank you again to all who came for making it an amazing experience!  Let's do this again, sometime.
