Spread # 108- An Artful Journey August 30, 2010

Posted by Orly in Uncategorized.

Up, up in the mountains of Santa Cruz in Northern California there is a magical place where earth, earthlings, and art, converge in most enchanting ways. The Presentation Center is the setting for An Artful Journey, a unique art retreat, intricately put together by Cindy O’Leary. I am super excited to be teaching Yours Naturally– a 3-day nature journaling workshop, from February 17-21. It is designed to tap into the vast nature that is around us, our own expansive nature, that of our fellow journeyers, and to explore the many ways that all is mysteriously and beautifully connected. The three unobstructed days will offer the ultimate exposure to a very personal and expressive art journaling process. It is for those of you who are enlivened by the thought of experimenting with ‘down to earth’, tactile, and unconventional materials and practices, invigorated by the grandness of nature, and are content with a more intimate and tranquil setting. I am excitedly awaiting the event as it holds the promise for a rich and joyous experience. If you wish to join me please secure your spot soon as class sizes are limited and classes fill fast.
I hope to meet you there.

I have had the wonderful opportunity to take classes and workshops from Orly in the past. She NEVER disappoints. She has helped me to develope and find my own creative, natural, organic style. I have also seen so many wonderful artists develope their own style under Orly’s guidance and classes. Everyone is does such wonderful work in her classes and beyond. I’ve learned so much about myself and how I interact in the world outside myself in her classes, that I have also been able to use in my own work outside of classes and beyond. Orly’s classes are fun, funny, introspective, challenging. I hear the new setting of these classes are wonderful! I wish I had the opportunity to join you!
