Spread #82- Journalfest 2010 January 29, 2010

Posted by Orly in Uncategorized.

Journalfest, the celebratory art journaling retreat is going to take place in the end of October 2010, in Port Townsend, in Washington State. I AM SO EXCITED. I am going to teach three 6-hour workshops titled Passport to Journal, Mapping Me, and Dia de los Muertos. This is a wonderful opportunity for those of you who have a passion for art journaling, to spend care-free and super creative time with a bunch (~150) of like-minded souls, witness some stunning sunrises and sunsets in an enchanted setting by the ocean. It’s a spot on earth that embraces autumn majestically, with its warm colors, crunchy leaves, pink skies, and all. Can you tell I am excited? Yes, it is far from now, but registration is near. The Journalfest website will be live on March 5 with lots of information and a full teacher/workshop line-up. Registration will begin April 1st (but forms can be sent in before that time). For more information, email Teesha Moore (the retreat organizer) at artgirl777@aol.com

More information about my upcoming workshops and retreats will soon be posted on my blog.

I’d like to plant here this quote that I love so much, by Kent Nerburn, from his book Letters to My Son. It relates for me to Journalfest. “Place yourself among those who live their lives with passion, and true learning will take place, no matter how humble or exalted the setting. But no matter what path you follow, do not be ashamed of your learning. In some corner of your life, you know more about something than anyone else. The true measure of your education is not what you know, but how you share what you know with others.”

Your classes sound sooo incredible!!! I bet they are going to be PACKED!!! I wish you nothing but sucess with the classes! Journalfest will be a wonderful experience! You are one of the most wonderful, encouraging and supportive teachers your students are going to love them. You have such an amazing gentle way of challenging us to bring out the best in our work. I am glad I am going to be there to experience it too! It is going to be sooo fun!

Hey orly. I love your blog. It has an amazing design. Im an artist as well, but it seems to me your way better and more sophisticated. Anyways, just wanted to say hi. Im one of Ilan’s online friends. You may remember me, probably not. My last comment on your site was probably half a year ago. 🙂

Keep it up!
