Time has flown by yet again, and we are at the last, but not least stop on the tour, Gail Schmidt
Gail and I have known each other for a few years now and she is the most wonderful person to work with. Always helpful and funny and ready to support you in whatever you do. She is the creative mind behind Creative workshops and her newest adventure will happen this summer
An Artful Gathering of creative people in a new venue, an online Art Retreat! How cool will that be?
I have gotten a lot of emails asking me whether I’ll be offering Visual Journalism 101 again. For those of you asking, I’m bringing this retired class back one last time. At Artful Gathering 2011! So this truly is your last chance to get in on this workshop before it is truly gone forever. But you HAVE to register for Artful Gathering in order to purchase a class when they become available for the event. If you haven’t heard about Artful Gathering then jump on over to http://www.artfulgathering.com/ and read all about this amazing event. You will not want to miss it. I’ve revamped the class printed material, a downloadable 30+ paged booklet with text and stepped out pictures so you can have it for easy reference after the workshop is over.
I hope you’ve enjoyed the tour and a little peek at the contributors for my book. I am so humbled and thankful to them and to you for your support in this monumental project. This past year has definitely been one of growth, and I’ve learned so much through the process of writing a first book, and had so many things in my own personal life happen that it makes me realize that what’s truly important is life itself and how it’s lived. It’s a very scary feeling to work on something so hard and then release it out into the world. It would be much easier to sit on the sidelines and not risk anything. But that’s not what living Art at the Speed of Life is about. That’s not how we grow as both artists and people. Sharing makes you vulnerable but by not sharing you can cease to grow. I chose awhile back to share, some ask why, still others think it’s not enough, but most of you have been loving and nurturing souls that have enhanced my journey and I hope I’ve enhanced yours. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
