If you love to take mixed-media art classes, but aren’t convenient to our location in Alexandria, VA, consider attending one of the three Art & Soul retreats held each year across the U.S. Artistic Artifacts is the on-site “store” for the Portland and Virginia Beach editions of these creative events! Founder of Art & Soul, Glenny Moir, says “We love Judy for her tireless dedication to our creative adventurers, and of course for her awesome selection of hand dyed vintage linens and trims, coins, keys, beads, buttons, charms, metal, paper & fiber collage kits, vintage and new game pieces, surface design supplies, embellishments, craft tools and supplies, books, magazines inks, paints, rubber stamps and sooooo much more. So if you forget something, need something, or just have to have something... she’s got it!”
For more information on this wonderful art retreat and to register, visit their website and select your desired venue. Glenny Moir’s blog also includes beautiful photographs of upcoming classes, profiles of Art & Soul instructors, registration and discount news, and much more — visit it often.
Held since 1999, these retreats are designed to stimulate your creative energy and give you an opportunity to explore new and exciting artistic ideas. For each venue, choose from dozens of workshops in collage, assemblage, jewelry, fiber arts, journaling, painting, art dolls, sculpture, altered books and so much more. No matter what your level of artistic experience, Art & Soul’s talented instructors will take you under their wing and make your creative spirit soar!
Please read your Art & Soul workshop descriptions carefully: when a separate kit fee is listed, it is payable directly to the instructor on the day of the workshop (Artistic Artifacts does not handle these kits or transactions). Artistic Artifacts, the on-site “store” for the Portland and Virginia Beach Art & Soul venues, sells many of these supplies, as well as one of a kind mixed media items. Preorder your desired supplies and tools from Artistic Artifacts’ online store and they can be picked up on site when you arrive for Art & Soul, saving you packing space! Contact us if you have any questions.
Virtually all workshops will require you to bring additional specified supplies (e.g., paint, gel medium) and basic art tools (e.g., scissors, brushes, etc.) to class. View list of recommended “basic” supplies for any Art & Soul workshop »
