“Many hands…make ART work”
Celebrating over 13 years of changing lives through art, community and family. As we shared in our first year, the vision for Art Is…You had been growing in the souls of a number of east coast artists and it grew wings in 2005 when they all got together and decided to make it a reality.
We have hosted events in Cromwell CT, Danbury CT, Stamford CT, Petaluma CA, Santa Rosa CA, Nashville TN, Memphis TN, Minneapolis MN, Sun Valley, ID, plus Sydney, Melbourne, Perth, Sunshine Coast, and Noosa Australia.
Our philosophy is to create a moment in time where artists, whether they be faculty or students, can come together to share in their passion for creativity. To create, self nourish, replenish personal creative resources and to nurture not only individual souls but the souls of those around them. Whether creating something is part of your daily routine or indeed the closest to creating has been using a glue stick – there is something for everybody.
For over 13 years words of joy and, tears of happiness have been shared . Friendships have been forged and we have witnessed lives changing.
In the words of one of our attendees:
I just wanted you both to know how much I am looking forward to seeing each of you and having an exciting learning experience. I have attended two other retreats, one time each, and did not want to return. What you two create has me eagerly returning. Thank you for what you do and offer to me. I KNOW how much work it is to create something like this, with its many, many complexities. See you soon. Hugs and good wishes, B.
In the words of one of our esteemed Educators:
The people who attend your event – love you for your attention to them as individuals not just a “mass’ of students. Truly, this ability you have to keep everyone connected not only to each other but to the two of you is unique! It sets you apart and brings a lovely feeling of belonging to all of us.
Our aim for this weekend is for everyone – teachers and students – to come together to create, self nourish, replenish personal creative resources and to nurture not only individual souls but the souls of those around them.
