What a great opportunity to be wandering and creating with Mixed Media Artist Shelley Rhodes. Shelley speaks our language! I’m sure it’s going to be difficult to choose between these two workshop destinations with Shelley…. the wild, rugged coastline of Ireland or the magical island of Sardinia in Italy. Here’s a little inspiration from Shelley to help you decide.
Charleston, SC: Explore Your Creative Side in the Cradle of Southern Hospitality
It’s the sound of a horse-drawn carriage – clip-clop clip-clop – trotting down a timeworn, cobblestone street. It’s the breeze that whispers past, bringing with it the scent of honeysuckle, accidentally snagged in the horse’s bridle. It’s the sun that streams through puffy clouds, drenching the scene before you in a bath of golden light.
It’s the she-crab soup, or the country-cured hams, or the flaky cornbread sitting before you, gracing a table silhouetted against antebellum views – of wrought-iron Juliette balconies and historic harbors, breezy palmetto palms and sidewalk cafés. Cafés just like the one at which you’re seated.
The Ultimate Girls’ Getaways & Mother-Daughter Trips (And How You Can Take One, Free!)
You know the typical annual vacation, where you’re herding the kids, or compromising with your husband, or planning a so-called balanced itinerary that touches on everyone’s interests but doesn’t dig into any?
Yeah, let’s skip that this year.
A growing trend in the travel industry, girls’ getaways – and their brainchild, mother-daughter getaways – invite women to relax, rejuvenate and revitalize with their besties. Add in serious bonding over themed travel – spa getaways, culinary extravaganzas, and yoga retreats, for example – and you have a real recipe for a vacation that you’ll love, no compromise required.
Mae Chevrette, a self proclaimed painter, photographer, wandering road-tripper and all around lover of life, is our newest inspiration. Without any traditional art training, she has created quite a name for herself in the art world, and was also interviewed for Oprah’s “Women Who Make Beautiful Things” article Oprah’s O Magazine. Her work features beautiful multimedia collages that are inspired by her travels. Mae will be leading the art portion of our upcoming Art Workshop in Belize in February 2016!
We are so proud to be working with Mae that we wanted to learn more about her art and travel adventures and share them with you. Enjoy this talented woman’s words and consider spending eight days adventuring with her in Belize!
