Spread #82- Journalfest 2010 January 29, 2010Posted 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 email@example.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.”
