Berlin Art Workshop : Creative Ladies from Around the World

Hi there! I wanted to catch up with you today and offer a special sneak peek "behind the scenes" at our first Berlin Art + Adventure Workshop!

Just a short time ago, an amazing group of talented ladies from Australia, Belgium, Switzerland, Germany, and the US all met up here in Berlin for a colorful, joyful celebration - and it was such a delight to meet them all. (The next international group is coming in September + you can join us here.)
My talented friend Christine Gerlach, co-creator of Rosenrot Berlin, did an incredible job of making beautiful, handmade decorations to greet and welcome participants as they arrived in our light filled, historic Berlin studio.
Christine's decorations added just the right touch of color and festivity to put us all in a creative mood.
We worked really hard to make the studio cozy, comfortable, and inspiring...
and we even added a "reading + resource corner" full of books and journals with loads of collage and mixed media art ideas and examples.

A special thanks goes to Christine for being such a great help throughout our Berlin Art + Adventure Workshop week.
What a lovely group of creative ladies we had visiting the studio from all corners of the globe!
You can see how concentrated everyone was working,
and there was a productive, lively atmosphere during our studio mornings.
Of course we took time out to eat delicious food during our studio breaks too :)

Ximena Jurado Llosa was our gifted chef from Ecuador who treated us to healthy, gluten free, vegetarian lunches each day.
Among Ximena's specialties were the glorious gluten free desserts she prepared freshly for us - little edible works of art to enjoy.

We had an adventurous time seeing Berlin during the afternoon - including going on a river boat tour, walking along a section of the former Berlin Wall, sampling ice cream, drinking coffee, taking a neighborhood stroll, and visiting several top art galleries and museums, which featured works from ancient times to classical modern and contemporary.

Our evening meals in Berlin were very special together, filled with lots of laughter and good times.
After all of our busy art making and touring in Berlin - using materials we collected here and there...
we painted and glued and cut and collaged...
with lots of creative energy and happy spirits...
and by the end of the week, we had a gallery wall full of beautiful creations.

On our final studio morning, we took the time to have a closer look at everyone's mixed media work, while enjoying a homemade Sunday brunch.
So much great, unique artwork here! Each piece was thoughtfully created with an individual sense of style and expression.
I'm so very proud of our lovely group of international women for their bubbling enthusiasm, kindness, generosity, and talent!

Thank you all for making the journey to Berlin, and what a pleasure to celebrate your art + creativity.

p.s. - **From September 3rd-7th, we'll be having our final Berlin Art + Adventure Workshop for 2014 - and there is exactly ONE spot still free!**

Berlin Debut + Summer Session Workshops

The time is drawing near, and tomorrow our very first Art + Adventure Workshop in Berlin will begin!

I'm delighted to welcome a group of lovely creative women from around the world to join me here making mixed media collages and exploring the lovely city of Berlin!
I've been gathering fun workshop supplies at the art stores, at my favorite flea markets (this photo from Arkona Platz), all over town, and we've been busy busy busy.... I can't wait to meet my participants and get started.

Be sure to follow us on Instagram and Facebook to get all the behind the scenes views of our Berlin Art + Adventure Workshop.
AND - for everyone who loves the summer as much as I do - our Summer Session of Creative Courageous Yearis starting next week on June 16th! 
You don't want to miss out on our many new delicious recipes, arts + crafts projects, guest interviews, summer book selections, and weekly photo walks. 

We'll have picnic and summer party ideas with yummy and simple to prepare healthy foods - and a special South of France / Mediterranean inspired feast as well!
One of my favorite parts about Creative Courageous Year is that I've definitely been noticing more beauty in my daily life through our weekly photo walks.

I'm inspired by what I've been discovering in my own life - and it is true a delight to see what other women are sharing from around the world in our friendly, open international group.
I have an Early Bird Discount running on the Summer Session e-course right now, yay! 

You can also get a reduced price on all three upcoming Seasonal Sessions (Summer, Autumn, and Holiday Sessions) to give yourself a boost of creative joy all year long. More about how to save money with my 3 season package here.

We're going to have a lovely time together, and you are most welcome to join in the fun.
Come explore + make + taste with us in our new Summer Session.
Sending you beautiful, sunny hugs from Berlin,
