Heading East to Play…I Mean Teach at Art Is You!

Teaching at Art Is You Stamford!This October I’ll be heading to Stamford, CT to teach (really that is play to me) at Art is You.  I say play because that what art retreats are to me, a place to express creativity, to have fun, to meet wonderful creatives, and all of that adds up to play!  I’ll be teaching Friday-Sunday, October 7-9, 2016 and hope to see you there for all the fun and festivities that make Art is You so creatively energizing!


In person workshop upcycling and transforming old beat up purses into wearable art with Carolyn Dube

This workshop was inspired by my all time favorite purse that had begun to show it’s age.  Scuffed, the snap was broken off, but it was still sturdy and just the perfect purse for me.  Adding just a little hint of color…okay a lot of color…brought it back to life!  That purse led to the next and then I just couldn’t stop.  In this workshop I am sharing all that I have learned including how to paint on any purse with any paint.   You can find out more about this workshop here and watch the video introduction to the workshop here.


In person Gelli prinitng® workshop - Unlocking the Magic of the Gelli Plate® with Carolyn Dube

Unlocking the Magic of the Gelli Plate® is all about the 3 keys to making an amazing print.  Once you know these 3 things the sky’s the limit!  Also included will be a fun way to master the color wheel without any effort or technical knowledge so you can play with the entire rainbow of wet paint and never make mud!  No experience necessary to make amazing prints, and be prepared to make a mountain of them in this all day workshop!  Find out more about this workshop here and watch the video introduction here.

In person art journaling workshop with Carolyn Dube called Letting Yourself Play

Ever feel frustrated or disappointed when you create? I used to feel that way all the time. Those feelings drained all my creativity and chased the muse away. But she came back. How? Through play.

But how do you play? I’m sharing actionable steps and techniques to do at each stage in this workshop so you can use that moment of being stuck to actually move yourself forward!

Letting Yourself Play is a workshop near and dear to my heart because I know first hand how tough it can be to rediscover how to play.  This workshop is limited to only 10 people so that you get lots of 1-on-1 guidance.  Find out more about this workshop here and watch the video introduction here.
