The Art of Confidence
Palm Springs, California, USA
October 20 - 23, 2011
October 20th, 2011
Travel Day. Meet by the pool for a beverage and then we'll head into Palm Springs for dinner around 7pm.
October 21st, 2011
8:30-9am Pilates by the Pool (optional)
9:30am Breakfast/Bonding (always a great combo!)
10:30am – 12:00pm Knocking down those pesky artist blocks
We’ll spend the morning talking, and doing a few soul-searching exercises that will help us get right down to why we occasionally (or always!) doubt ourselves as creative people. The results from this will be the subject matter for a few mixed media pieces on Day Three. Vintage book sketchbooks will be handed out, painted and prepped.
Lunch (continue with page prep, and maybe a swim in the pool!)
2-5pm Field Trip: An afternoon in Palm Springs
We’ll head into Palm Springs, and hit a few local thrift shops to look for inspirational bits & pieces to be included on our sketchbook pages. We’ll stop in for a mocha-latte-cappa-somethin’ and do one more little exercise… because cafes are always the best place to be reflective/creative, right?! Ahhh, caffeine and cozy chairs.
9pm MOVIE NIGHT! Handmade Nation - A Documentary about the New Wave of Art, Craft and Design by Faythe Levine.
October 22nd, 2011
8:30-9am Pilates by the Pool (optional, but if feels so good!)
10:30am – 12:00pm Soul-searching… visualized.
We will take everything we figured out during the soul-searching exercises from Day Two, and turn them into mixed media work that you can hang in your home/studio/car/wherever, to remind you that you are an artist… even on a bad day!
2-4pm continue with your collages / one-on-one’s to talk inspiration vs. soul-crushing jealousy issues
6-8pm Final night dinner
9pm Synchronized Swimming Competition - (just kidding, but we can if you want!)
