What a fun few days it has been since I announced my in-person Studio Retreats here in Colorado. Thanks for all the e-mails you've sent with such enthusiastic support. Hope to see many of you here in Colorado soon!
When I started my Collage Camp on-line video workshops back in April, and then added the Mixed Media Mania class sign-up in late May (as soon as my cough ends and my voice comes back we will finish those!)...you all have been amazing in your getting the word out. You know I could not have done that without you. I have been out of the loop, just hunkered down in my studio making work, these past few years and so no one knew to look for workshops from me, once I started to offer them. But you all put the word out "on the streets" in just a matter of days and I thank you for that. Do you think I could ask you to do it one more time? What if everyone who linked to my new KC Willis Studio Retreats got something from my studio to yours? Everybody.
See the cool little piece shown here? It's one of my small in size, big in attitude pieces. They're done with a variety of women from yesteryear and measure up to be a whopping 4"x6". A fun little piece to have.
Here's the scoop. Mention my Studio Retreats on your blog and link to the Retreats. You can grab the Badge off of the Retreat front page or grab any of the images off my blog and link. Drop a comment after this post with your blog link on it (great way for everyone who reads this blog to check out yours) and then e-mail your address to me privately at firstname.lastname@example.org. One of these great gals will be on the way to you right away. You can get the same linkage credit if you post a "Status Update" on Facebook with a link attached to it to the Retreats. If you don't have a blog or aren't on Facebook, but have a way to get the word out, I'm open to it. Just ask me. Want everyone who is willing to blab about an Art Retreat in Colorado to get a free little piece of my art and attitude! This giveaway is for five days or 100 pieces whichever comes first.
Please feel free to tell others on your blog about this Giveaway....just please make it very clear that the free piece is if they link to the Retreats not just link to this giveaway. Know what I mean?
I am just soooo excited about the opportunity to teach in person. Never thought I would do that (and I can't promise I will do it forever) BUT for now I am super-jazzed about it. I want you to come hang with me in my new studio, have dinner with me in the evening and enjoy the unbelievably beautiful area that I call home. I have so much I want to share with you about art and living the artistic life and so much I can learn from you.
As Georgia O'Keeffe said "There is something unexplored about women...that only a woman can explore."
With much gratitude for all your love and support....
