As artists, we all have a deep seated need for room to grow and create. We need safe spaces to reveal and celebrate who we are. We need community—time together, where we can hold space for each other to support what we can become. I invite you to join me this fall…
Magic in the Making: A Weekend of Nurturing Your Creative Soul
September 30-October 2
@The Nest, Lambertville, New Jersey
This fall, an intimate group (six attendees) will gather on the lush, tranquil grounds of @TheNest, a space designed to nurture our creative longings. Together we will experience the magic of making—we’ll play with clay in the ceramic studio, we’ll practice sketching and drawing techniques in the pavilion, we’ll fill our wells and cultivate inspiration with our shared stories.
Join me and fellow artist, Alisha Hastings-Kimball, who is sharing the magic of her studio space with us. We will be your gentle guides as you devote this time to your creative practice.
This is our chance to unplug and be together in a shared space. It’s a time to embrace and celebrate the process—the artist’s way! Most of all, this is your time to be seen, to be heard, and to be supported in your journey as an artist.
