Sometimes You Have to Stop Doing Something…

Written by on August 16, 2013 in About Camp, Art Camp for Women with 13 Comments

So There will be Room for Something New to Show Up!

For the past 8 years we, Lorri and Lori, have eaten, slept and breathed Art Camp for Women. We have laughed, learned, met wonderful and talented women from all over North America, learned some more and laughed some more. And if we were younger we would probably keep going for another couple of years.

Between the slow economic recovery, the inconvenience and cost of air travel  and the advance of our technology overall, it doesn’t bode well for the timely growth of our small art retreat venue.  While we are not losing money; neither one of us could buy our own groceries on what we are making at Art Camp.  And we don’t shop at Whole Foods.  In plain English, at this rate by the time we could live off of Art Camp for Women we would be in nursing homes.

Artist in the Spotlight-Sue Bleiweiss, The Sketchbook Challenge & Art Camp for Women

Written by on August 1, 2013 in Art Camp for Women, Fiber Arts, Spotlighted Artist with 3 Comments

One of the best parts of Art Camp for Women that you can’t see – is that we meet many amazing artists. Many of these women also have a kind of pioneering entrepreneurial way about them which we also greatly admire. We can only hire so many artists every year and scheduling etc. also weeds out many others. Thus was born our Artist in the Spotlight series.

Our Artist in the Spotlight this time is Sue Bleiweiss. We want to let you get to know the woman behind the Sketchbook Challenge – an anthology of a blog that has a monthly art theme. Sue organized some of our favorite mixed media artists to show what art they make using the theme. Sue also authored the book derived from that blog: The Sketchbook Challenge: Techniques, Prompts and Inspiration for Achieving Your Creative Goals.
