SQUAM is an artists workshop/retreat held on Squam Lake in New Hampshire twice a year. I'll get to work with top notch illustrators, designers, artists and crafters from all over the country to help me hone and refine my voice and style through the joyful process of creative exploration.
I'm registered for three full-day workshops. And there will be some fabulous guest speakers there too. The person I'm most looking forward to meeting is Kayte Terry, who has built her career at Anthropologie and works at the epicenter of the creative hub (in that oh-so-very creative company) in their flagship Philadelphia office. She will share some insider scoop on just how they come up with those cooloi ideas for photo shoots and store displays, as well as share stories of her personal journey of carving out a thriving professional life steeped in wild creativity.
I can't believe it's finally here and now... I'm having cold feet. It's a long way to go and it has been quite an investment that I probably shouldn't be making right now. Can you tell I'm in a bit of a funk? Well, maybe this is just what I need to get me back on track and in a positive state of mind about myself, my family and my art.
So off I go! Can't wait to share what I've learned when I get back.
