Girl Crush Tea Party + Art Workshop!

Friday, January 27, 2012

I'm so happy to announce this! I'll be co-hosting one of four Tea Party + Art workshops this April 14th with The Jealous Curator. This is a new series of workshops that came about from a regular series of "Girl Crush" posts on which was all about celebrating woman artists. Danielle aka The Jealous Curator, will be traveling to each one day workshop (date below). Check out her full post to here for info on the other three talented co-hosts.

March 10th, 2012 {Saturday} : San Francisco + Lisa Congdon

April 14th, 2012 {Saturday} : Brooklyn, New York + Samantha French

June 9th, 2012 {Saturday} : Portland + Lisa Golightly

September 29th, 2012 {Saturday} : Austin + Alyson Fox

To walk away from our computers, and actually meet in person for a glorious, creative, pastry-filled day. To figure out a way to break through artist blocks. To get inspired, and recharged. To celebrate being women artists… and obviously, to have a reason to eat lots of pretty little cakes & tarts in the middle of the day!

  • ~ 14 people {including me and the artist} for an entire Saturday of creative fun!
  • ~ 9am tea & coffee & pastries & chatting {kind of like a “pre-tea party” party!}
  • ~ a talk by me re: women/art/insecurities/inspirations
  • ~ a talk about insecurities/inspirations from the host artist {a working artist who also feels blocked sometimes – after all, it happens to the best of us!}
  • ~ 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 a local restaurant/bistro ~ 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}, or…
  • ~ if the studio is too small for all of us to roll up our sleeves and get messy, the host artist will take us out on a creative field trip for the afternoon. We’ll see where they go to get inspired on days when they’re feeling, well, not so inspired!
  • ~ 6pm whoever wants to go out for dinner together can… but if everyone is pooped, we’ll just call it a day.
  • ~ $275 {includes everything, except the dinner that might happen, if we just don’t want the tea party to end!}

So that’s it! If you want to join me for inspiration, art, and pretty cakes you can sign up any time!
