The Eric Carle Museum : Workshop for 3D Art Lab for Kids

It is always a thrill to be asked to run an art  workshop - especially at The Eric Carle Museum's beautiful art studio. Many thanks to Meghan Burch for making me feel so at home there! Great kids/families/adults throughout the afternoon created marvelous sculptures with rolled paper. Everyone had fun! Can't wait to return in the fall.

Signing books! Thank you to The Eric Carle Museum for having me! What a creative place!

Art {retreat} Camp - a breath of fresh air

Painting on the Beach with Mati McDonough

It's time again to sign up for summer camp. Yes. Enroll yourself in summer camp just like a kid! Roam a private island filled with trees and hills and jumpstart your nap rituals again. Your yoga practice. Learn wonderful creative ways to express yourself through exciting art workshops with some of the finest instructors in the world. Be with other creative types who like yourself, may have not (for a long time?) or ever picked up a paintbrush and reconnect with yourself! 

There are so many things I could tell you about this beautiful island - but maybe just maybe you will come explore them for yourself. Watch the video. Be inspired. Join our intimate (only 25 campers!) group of campers who are waiting for August with anticipation. Watch the video for some snippets of last year's adventure! Read what people had to say about it from last year (scroll down). Sign up here at ARC.

New season, new blog header

blossoms from last April in Germany
I - like so many other New Englanders are thrilled about Spring. So of course whilst resurrecting my blog from the depths of Winter past I felt compelled to make a new header. New new new is spring in all ways. For me this Spring is bring some new adventures. I am working on a NEW book series (yes series!) , we are hosting new exhibits and classes at artstream - a series of online classes which are exciting for me personally as the teacher. It's all good. It's all new as this long awaited Spring unfolds.I hope to bring pieces of this life to you here more consistently this year! Happy Spring!
