Right on the heels of my fabulous experience at the Dayton Art Institute came another wonderful art experience, the Art is Magic Creative Retreat. I was able to participate last year (see post here) and was thrilled to learn that Galia Alena was once again bringing together an amazing group of creative women to share their insights and techniques for mixed media art.
The weekend retreat flies by quickly! Eighteen classes are released over a two day period, each only remaining accessible for 24 hours after its release. There is an option to join the Ongoing Creative Retreat, which I did last year, but this year my funds were limited and I had to come up with a strategy for making the most of each class offering.
I knew that I couldn't possibly watch each class and complete each project in the time that was available, so I took notes and made a few quick sketches as time permitted, then bookmarked the websites of the artists so that I could find them later.
Now my plan is to work through the various techniques and see where the explorations take my own creative work. I'll be sharing my creative adventures here and on Instagram in the coming weeks.
