However—some of the things I don’t get to do in most of the workshops I go to are
A. Finish a project.
B. Experiment enough with new tools and ideas.
C. Fully explore the new possibilities with someone who knows what they are doing in this new thing I’m learning.
D. Feel OK asking for help over and over if I get stuck on something that is apparently simple for other people.
E. Have time to work on my project at my own speed, working with my own body chronology (I’m a night person), with all my “stuff” still laid out in one place and ready to go when I am.
F. Hang out with those artists I admire and pick their wonderful creative brains, mercilessly.
So-- when I get the chance to do a 5-day, same teachers, retreat space, all-day, all-night accessability to my works-in-progress, I jump at it. Sometimes I just have to make the opportunity happen instead of waiting for it.
Hence—Leslie Marsh and Rozanne Eveans Stout, in June, in Michigan. I hope you have the chance to join us, because it’s going to be freaking awesome and so worth it.
