Over at 14 Secrets we are having a birthday bash this week, because our group is 4 years old and because several of us have our own personal birthdays as well. We decided since we are a virtual group we can celebrate any way we would like, so a virtual art retreat cruise to Hawaii seemed to be the just the thing. We want it to be a week of Creative Juju collecting, creating, and sharing. Like Cynthia Morris's workshops, we want to gather Juju, and one of the best ways to do that is get together with your artist friends and explore the world. We'll have our art journals with us and we will keep our senses wide open and play with generosity. We will look for joy and juju in design and in all we see. Some of us are filling the ship with flowers; frangipani, orchids, and rudbeckias. We will find juju in stories and sounds around us, listening to the waves, seagulls, and each other. Of course there will be new scents to breathe in and all of it will be memorable. There will be new tastes, meals to share... Exotic tropical fruit will be available at any time, along with teas and lattes. Mmmmm. Maybe some chocolate? There will be much laughter and delight. Want to join us? All you need is your imagination.
We will have workshops on board our virtual ship, one being altered boxes with Patti. Maybe I could do a little art doll workshop. Any other offers?
