|Liz Kettle's Magical Stitches workshop|
Hello all my mixed media mavens! I hope you are enjoying the summer season and getting your art on. I just wanted to pop in and remind you to sign up for our Virginia Beach Art & Soul Retreat coming up this fall. Woot! It's jam packed with tons of exciting classes, teachers, activities, events, and lots of happy people from your soul tribe will be there. Here's just a little bit of a perspective on how grand this event will be...
|Susan Lenart Kazmer demonstrates transparent layers in resin|
We have 25 amazingly talented instructors, who between all of them probably have been published in more art magazines and books than we've read in our entire life! Many of our instructors have even published their own books, so you know they've got some incredible things to teach you and help expand your creative repertoire.
|Mindy Lacefield's Inner Radiant Child workshop|
This year in Virginia Beach, we are offering 96 unique workshops during 6 gloriously artistic days! Choose from full, half day and evening classes... it's all up to you. Choose as many or as few as you like. Choose something you're familiar with or something that's totally outside your comfort zone!
|Learn Ribbed Forms of Expression with Nancy Prichard|
What type of media do you like to work with? Well, we've got classes that work with metal, PMC, fabric, fiber, acrylics, watercolors, natural & found objects, paper, ephemera, clay, inks and dyes, enamels, wax, resin, tools, stencils, photos and images, and even the business side of art. Whew!
|Kitty Miller and her class Endangered Encaustics|
And if that didn't seem like enough of a variety, here are the types of projects you'll be making with all that stuff... You can try your hand at jewelry, collage, assemblage, dollmaking, sculpture, home decor items, clothing, quilting, sewing, stitching, painting, journaling, bookmaking, symbolism, encaustics, cold connections, soldering and brazing, stamping, image transfers, and how to sell your art online! Whew, again!
|Ruth Chandler helps you Wrap It Up with a custom carryall|
And if that wasn't enough, we've got an Opening Night Party, impromptu pajama parties, our mixed media Vendor Night shopping extravaganza, trades, swaps, demos, play stations, an on-site store and much, much more!!
