Creativille 2024 Retreat Wrap Up

Place 20 plus creatives in a room and you get so much JOY= laughter, encouragement, beautiful art and new friendships. We are created to create, and good things happen when we are image bearers of our Creator!

I was so honored to be an instructor for Creativille 2024 Mixed Media retreat that took place April 19-21, at the Creative Community Center off Dickson Street in Fayetteville, Arkansas. Organized by artist Shannon Green, this mixed media workshop hosted 20 participants from 11 states. Four teachers; Rosemary Morris, (me) Stacy Spangler, Donna Joy and Lesha Shaver, each taught a 3.5 hour lesson from a range of topics of Natural/Eco dying, leather button hole binding, mixed media journals and painted paper collage florals.
