What’s an art retreat without art projects?
Creative University will always have its roots in papercrafting, but students are encouraged to spread their wings and step outside their comfort zone with classes in jewelry and altered art as well as scrapbooking and cardmaking.
All students may attend all classes, so everyone gets a chance to make the projects.
Erin’s “Bird on a Wire” bracelet class was a challenge for some, but every student walked away with a stunning piece, and learned many new jewelry making techniques. For several of the attendees, this was their first time at jewelry making! Erin’s teaching style and her helpful and charming assistants helped even the most novice student.
Joy is an expert papercrafter, but a first time jewelry maker. With Tahne’s help, she’s a happy crafter.

Michelle’s mini album class featured a flowery embellished cover and flip-up pages in a CD tin. I love this bohemian layered look using the Stella paper from Close to My Heart.

Mystique really loves those rolled paper flowers.
While everyone was at class, I snuck into the day room and snapped a few pictures. When students weren’t in class, this was one of the places they spent their time. Can’t you just feel the creative vibes with all these art supplies collected in one space?
Next up, the scrapbooking and cardmaking class. Sit back and relax, I’ll be posting soon!
