Retreat This Weekend

My second annual Artist's Muse Art Get-together retreat is happening this weekend at Stonehaven Ranch in San Marcos, Texas. There is going to be about 20 women spending the weekend together making art!!!

Here is the invitation I sent out:

Come spend a weekend with other women artists in a nurturing environment in the beautiful Texas Hill Country to connect with your creativity and create art.

This mostly unstructured, informal weekend is an opportunity for you to get away from the “real” world to have time to play, create, and make new artist friends. Whether you are into artist trading cards, greeting cards, altered books, collage and other types of paper crafts, assemblage art, or other altered art, you can have fun making mixed media art.

Tables will be set up where you can bring your art supplies to work on projects. Bring everything you need including rubber stamps, collage paper, card stock, inkpads, embellishments, scissors, glue, etc.

An art supply table will be set up for you to bring art supplies to share with other women. Feel free to bring those items you no longer care to have but would like to share with other women in the group.

If you would like to supply a Make and Take project please sign up. A Make and Take project is an art project that can be easily completed in 30 minutes or less. You provide a sample of the completed project, the directions, and the supplies to complete the project (in a large ziplock bag). Ideas include greeting cards, artist trading cards, minuture books, etc.

If you would like to volunteer to lead a 2 hour workshop on a more involved art project please let me know. Please provide a title, description, and supply list of the workshop. I will send out the supply list to the participants the week before the retreat so that those women who want to participate can have their supplies available.

Accommodations are on a 171-acre ranch with a swimming pool and hot tub. Sleeping is dormitory style in single beds with shared bathrooms. The facility is completely equipped with towels, bed linens and a laundry room.

Vegetarian meals will be provided and include dinner on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday evenings; breakfast on Saturday and Sunday mornings, and lunch on Saturday and Sunday afternoon. Please let me know if you have any special dietary needs.
