PanPastels! Coming to Art Camp for Women This Year!!

Written by on May 30, 2013 in Art Camp for Women, Art Journaling, Technology, Video with 0 Comments

Art Camp for Women will be using PanPastels
at Gypsy Summer Camp and this fall
for Carla Sonheim’s classes (October 11-14).

Several years ago we  came across PanPastels via a Teesha Moore video on YouTube (see below).  We hadn’t heard of them before so went off – scouring the internet and YouTube for more information.  Whenever we discovered anything new about PanPastels we would post it on our blog. People thought we were PanPastel experts and we had to say we were just posting tutorials and videos by other people – this was more than 5 years ago, so folk were a little more naive about blogging and videos.

Buy Some Happiness

Lorri and Lori

Lorri Flint and Lori Wostl here, from Art Camp for Women and this year we are focusing on Connection.  I (Lorri) just spent a day creating with my sister.  Some women shop and lunch, we do art and lunch!  We’re lucky that we live about 20 minutes apart.  At the end of the day, we give each other a hug and wonder “Why we don’t do this more often?”  Connecting with my sister leaves both of us feeling content and happy!

 Sisters

Lori and I are both reading “The Happiness Project” a #1 New York Times Bestseller by Gretchen Rubin.  I just reached the chapter titled Buy Some Happiness.  I’m grateful that Gretchen did so much research and brought it all together into an easily readable, thoroughly enjoyable account of her year exploring the many aspects of happiness.

Artist in the Spotlight – Becky Nunn of Nunn Design

Written by on May 16, 2013 in Art Camp for Women, Newsletter, Spotlighted Artist with 5 Comments

BeckyPic2One of the best parts of Art Camp for Women that you can’t see is that we meet many amazing women artists. Many of these women also have a kind of pioneering entrepreneurial way about them which we also greatly admire. Since we are fairly small we can only hire so many artists every year and scheduling etc also weeds out many others.

Our Artist in the Spotlight this week is Becky Nunn and we are very pleased that everything worked out for her to come and teach for us this fall! (Oct. 8-11)
