Memories from "Art Is...You"

Columbus Day weekend found me at the long-awaited Art Is...You Art Retreat in Stamford, CT.

My artful fun began on Friday evening in Sue Pelletier's "Sweater Sculptures" class where we created and laughed for three hours. Thanks Sue, for the instruction, inspiration and FUN!

This was followed by relaxation in the Stamford Sheraton bar with dear friends reunited at this wonderful retreat.

Saturday I taught "Mixed Media Mantras" to a fabulous group of talented ladies. We had a wonderfully creative day together...

...just check out the amazing results!

Following class, I dined with a great group of ladies...(Elizabeth, I wish you were in this photo.)

...and then we attended the Art Trunk in the hotel atrium. Oh my... table after table of gorgeousness. Yes indeed, a little shopping ensued.

And then of course, back to the watering hole to reflect on the day and LAUGH out loud with wonderful friends.

Sunday morning, before my artful adventure came to a close, a delicious "Breakfast for the Brave" was shared by all. We were entertained by a wonderful songstress and enlightened by a panel of artists sharing their stories of bravery.

From start to finish the retreat was magic in every way and I only wish that my time there could have lasted longer. However, I know that the memories made will stay with me always.

My sincere thanks to Sallianne & Ellen who work tirelessly to provide the best of the best for all attendees and faculty.

If you have ever considered treating yourself to an art retreat, then THIS is the one for you! See you in Stamford...October 2013.

This looks like so much fun. I see that next year will include Nashville - a quick car ride for me! I just might have to go!
