An Artist's Quest

So much to do, so much to share!

It’s been a busy summer with camps, vacations and visitors. And while summer isn’t over yet there is a sense of winding down from one mode to the next.  Summer for me has a bit of a different energy and though I have plenty to do, I take it all at a different pace.  Pausing to tend the garden and put up jams, read a book and roast tomatoes.  All great blessing but the whisper of Fall is tickling for my attention and it came to me that I need to get out the word on a vast array of creative workshops and reflective retreats that I’m offering in the next 6 months. First, and very soon, I have an art sale with long time friend and fellow artist Kieren Dutcher I am including the flyer for our sale in her back yard if you happen to live in the Oakland California area we would love to see you. Here is a link to Keiren’s blog.

Next I want to let you know about a diversity of creative workshops and introspective retreats that I hope will spark your interest and get some creative energy flowing. Following is a list – for more detailed descriptions follow this link to my website. Many of the classes are one-day events, but if you would like to participate and spend the night at The Bishop’s Ranch that can often be arranged, email me to find out more. mailto:artist@lisathorpe.com
