Teesha Moore’s Artfest– the fantastic mixed media retreat- will be celebrating it’s thirteenth year in March 2012! It will also be the last Artfest. Teesha is an amazing artist and entrepeneur and I know she will have new and inspiring ideas for all of us in the future.
Artfest is held in the charming town on Port Townsend. You fly (or drive) to Seattle and then cross to the island on a ferry- you can rent a car or there is a shuttle available from the Seattle airport. Once there, we have everything we need right at our fingertips for a fantastic gathering. Food, art-making, evening events, inspiring teachers, galleries and shops in the town. It’s a rich feast of inspiration and creativity.
I first met Teesha in 2001 at the conference Beyond the Surface. I was already a subscriber to her zine The Studio and was so excited to not only meet her but to teach at the next Artfest. I taught workshops there for the next several years, and now after a break, I am so honored to be back teaching at this last Artfest.
If you want to learn from and create art with some of the finest teachers on the planet and have a great time with like- minded creative souls, take this opportunity to come to Artfest. The dates are March 28- April 1st, 2012. It is an event not to be missed! Hope to see you all there!!!
