I’m feverishly working on all of the details for Art Retreat at The Prairie in April! When Registration opens later this week, I’ll have suggestions for lodging (not everyone can stay at The Prairie ~ there aren’t enough beds ~ register early if you want to have the best chance of getting a spot there), and, since The Prairie is quite remote, I’m offering a meal plan for those students who don’t want to worry about bringing anything or leaving campus to find lunch or dinner each day. I’ll have driving directions available from Houston, Austin and Dallas ~ When I travel there, I fly into Austin, rent a car and drive to Round Top. It’s about an hour’s drive or so ~ It’s an easy drive with plenty of pretty scenery!

Registration will have an opportunity for you to purchase your meal plan and, if you are interested in eating breakfast with us at The Prairie and aren’t a registered guest, you can purchase breakfast reservations there for one or more mornings.

Rachel Ashwell operates a store on the Prairie property, and it will be open for us to shop while we are there! You’ll love all of her pretty things ~ she’s such an inspiring designer! Visit her website and blog to meet her if you haven’t done so already!

Until next time!

      I’m working on July’s schedule too! Have you heard of Jack and Cat Curio? Google them ~ I think you’ll be very impressed! Mike and Lesley are a sweet couple who are amazingly talented artists! They are on the Design Teams for Graphic 45 and ICE Resin ~ very professional folks. They are going to join us in California in July ~
