Art Is You is just One Month Away

For the last five years, I’ve been lucky to spend several days each Fall with like-minded people at Art Is You Mixed Media Art Retreat in Stamford, CT.  The creative atmosphere, happiness, open-mindedness, laughter and spirit of generosity at Art Is You always makes me smile. I’m bursting to go!

I’ve made a few photo collages from prior Art Is You Retreats for this post. The beautiful gals in the center are Sallianne and Ellen, the two lovely and talented organizers of the event.

The first time I went to Art Is You, I went alone.  I made four great friends that trip. It’s hard to explain the connection people make at this event. We just all ‘get’ each other, and you are welcome no matter what. It doesn’t matter if you’re a mixed media person or a quilter, a doll maker or a painter… the spirit of creativity abounds.

It’s really unique, and there are plenty of opportunities to meet people – not just in classes, but also at meals and morning and evening events.

This year I’m there for 5 days… teaching three workshops, and taking two.  I love being a student and can’t wait to learn from Jen Crossley and Kara McKnight Holbrook. Here are the links to the classes I am teaching:
