When: Saturday, June 23rd, 2012

Where: The Soo Visual Arts Center in Minneapolis, MN

The day in a nutshell:
An entire Saturday of creative fun with me, the Jealous Curator, SooVAC and 14 other art lovers
~ 9am tea & coffee & breakfast from Common Roots Cafe & chatting {kind of like a “pre-tea party” party!}
~ a talk by The Jealous Curator re: women/art/insecurities/inspirations
~ a talk with the host artist
~ everyone introduces themselves/share their issues {artist blocks, too many ideas but not executing any, etc}
~ break into groups and do 2 to 3 exercises to help with these issues {only require a fancy notebook & pencil, which will be provided.}
~ tea party lunch {catered by Chowgirls Killer Catering ~ sandwiches & salads, followed by lots of fancy little treats… and tea of course!}
~ an afternoon of making art {mixed media collage, so that you can do whatever you want. Supplies will be provided – inspiration coming from the morning exercises}
~ 6pm whoever wants to go out for dinner together can… but if everyone is pooped, we’ll just call it a day.
~ $175 includes everything, except the dinner that might happen, if we just don’t want the tea party to end!
~ each guest will receive an amazing goodie bag featuring: The Walker Art Center Gift Shop, UrbanimalVandalia Street Press, The Peoples Jewelry, PaperDartsHang It, Soo VAC, art supplies for the project including a beautiful bamboo art panel from Plywerk, some prints from my Etsy shop...and a bunch of other surprises.
~ I will raffle of a piece of original art to on of the 12 guests!
