I NEED you!!

Happy Friday!! Love my Fridays:) I substitute at the High School then coming home to pick up house, laundry, make dinner then heading out to our first home football game...Go Spoofhounds!!:) We are State Champions and VERY GOOD....so the game will be awesome.

Girls, I have a vision...a BIG vision. I am listening to my HEART and it is telling me to have an art retreat. One that brings us together...in a peaceful place when we can learn and grow from one another. I need YOU to help!! If you are at all interested in TEACHING an art class would you please leave a comment?? Tell me what you can do/would like to do. I am thinking about having this either this coming spring or next fall.

The retreat would be 3 days/2 nights and filled with art and inspiration and spirit and lots of JOY.

Let me know your thoughts!!!!

  5. Hi Leslie--I feel a little silly being specific with all the good wishes being posted...but I would love to be involved in this. I delight in teaching ANYthing I know, not as an "expert" but as a cheerleader, helping others see that they, too, can conquer things. I would be happy to learn enough to teach anything you would want...I have already done some teaching of developing a photographer's eye (not the nuts and bolts of your camera--but noticing the pictures to be taken and seeing good composition), scrapbooking, interactive pages/art (pockets, flaps, windows, movable pieces), journaling, art as grief therapy/memory art, and more. Keep me posted as things develop more fully! (I'm in Ohio, so within driving distance of middle america.)

  6. Hello Leslie! I just saw this post on our Magically Mixed Art Community on facebook. What an inspired idea! I'm an elementary school teacher turned artist and writer. I host a creative meetup group and am also currently dreaming up creative enrichment workshops to offer to my tutoring students. I love to gather creative community. I have no idea where this next year will find me, but I'm very interested in hearing about the evolution of your art retreat idea. Would love to participate somehow. Let's keep in touch!

  7. Would love to learn more. I do commission artwork and I occasionally teach non-painting friends how to explore their creativity with Acrylic/mixed media painting. I LOVE to teach -- I am a former elementary school teacher. I live in Northwest Arkansas.

  9. I am in California but would love to know more about where you are headed with this. Perhaps I could help coordinate an online component and teach/learn from afar? Great opportunity to learn more about logistics and mechanics of facilitating a retreat. Of course I am always up for a trip and meeting new people so if dates work out could consider participating in person. would love to explore....lets chat!

    FYI-I didn't post the site to get traffic, just thought you might get some ideas from how we organized things. We are full!
