Over on our new message board, I noticed that several of you were getting excited about your upcoming INSPIRE workshop. And others of you, hadn't heard of it.
So, here's scoop: Each year, Donna Downey hosts an Inspired Artists Workshop. From what I've heard, it's so, so, so much more than classes. It's a weekend filled with mini-workshops from a variety of instructors across a variety of artistic fields… that you come home stretched in ways you never thought possible.
This year, I see a list of 33 different instructors are teaching — and many of them are names that you would recognize. Click the link & check out the names on the left-hand side. This year, the event will be held in Concord, NC over the weekend of May 13-15, 2010.
Here is just some of what Donna Downey says on her website about the weekend:
With a focus on artistic process, the core workshop program gives you three hours with each of the featured artists for two-days of horizon-expanding instruction. You will also be able to choose from a variety of mini workshops to fill in the third day of your workshop experience.
Inspired. Artist Workshop is all about the experience of exploring the artist in you, as you step out and broaden your definition of personal creativity. The goal of the workshop is to feed your passion to create and express yourself through multiple mediums. All levels of crafters are welcome as the event celebrates the unique artistic vision each attendee brings with them.
If the idea of learning a new and inspired process and discovering new artistic methods to give a new platform to your personal artistic voice and vision appeal to you, this is the workshop for you.
If this sounds like something you'd like to do but you haven't registered yet, be sure to do so soon. Donna's website today (Tues, Feb 23, 2010) says that there are only 40 seats left!
