Today the Lulu Art team is right in the middle of an amazing art retreat called the Australian Mixed Media Roadshow today. This is only Day Two of the retreat but already there is magical art being created and many new friendships being made.
It has been a massive reminder to me how rich our lives are when we not only have beautiful friends in our lives, but those friends really “get” us and continue to lift us up with their love, encouragement and inspiration. They make our lives SPARKLE.
Our extra (optional) journal prompt is:
Use something sparkly on your page.
This weeks inspiration:
What better inspiration than some of the work by the amazing Roadshow teachers.
Art-Is-You – Australian Mixed Media Roadshow
I feel so blessed to have been involved with Sallianne McClelland and her wonderful team of helpers and teachers. They put so much thought and work into each and every event and they manage to create an environment that is nurturing and incredibly fun! Look at the smiles on the faces in the photo below. It says it all really!!
Here are a few quotes from some recent attendees …
“First day of Art Is You and it’s everything I hoped it would be…and more! The most wonderful art retreat where magic happens, encouraged and guided by generous and talented teachers; sharing with like minded artists, most of whom have become good friends; where time is spent in a safe, nurturing, holistic environment.
I feel so grateful and blessed to have found the wonderful Sallianne McClelland and her amazing faculty and I will never miss an Art Is You, it’s just the best creative time anyone could wish for. Sign me up to the next one, Sal!” – Barbara Hodges
“Thank you Sallianne, and your great team of teachers, for a wonderful mixed media experience that I enjoyed on Friday. Warm hospitality, inspiring art making, good company and a perfect venue made for a great first time experience of your roadshow!” – Fiona Fitzpatrick
“Words cannot describe the awesomeness of the entire Art Is You experience. I loved every minute of my time spent there, meeting & connecting with such a talented & special group of people, reigniting my passion for all things creative & having an opportunity to continue my journey into re-discovering myself. I love you all. Thank you Sallianne McClelland for facilitating such an incredible event. I wish I could attend them all! – Ruth Swadling
