Close your eyes….go ahead, and take a deep breath. Now, imagine traveling to the gorgeous Gulf Coast of Mississippi in the quaint Ocean Springs to take a two day art retreat! Sound enticing? April 20-21 will be a magical weekend of creating art, shopping, connecting with new artists, and taking some of the most exciting art workshops being offered this year. The Mary C. O’Keefe Cultural Center will be home to the Art By The Sea Retreat this year and I have the privileged of being one of the 13 instructors teaching workshops there!

I will be teaching two classes outrageously fun classes on Mixed Media and Torn Paper Collage Techniques. We will paint a riot of papers, learn how to alter ephemera, and build patterns on a myriad of paper styles, have a full class paper swap using our newly created papers, and then create a mixed media, torn paper collage using those papers and specialty papers provided in the workshop. If you have been wanting to try you hand and altering papers with acrylics, using new acrylic mediums, and loosening up your creative style then this class would be perfect for you!

There are also so many other great classes as well from subtractive painting, book making, doll making, jewelry, encaustics, painting, and fine glass craft. You can read all about it and register here at The Art By The Sea Retreats or message me with details! I say gather up a group of your best art peeps and head to Ocean Springs for a girls weekend….or guys, ;), of art and high living!
