Three of the happiest weeks of my life were the ones I spent as a Master Artist at the Atlantic Center for the Arts.
It’s one of the best-kept secrets in the art/literature world, a retreat where you can go to study with people whose work interests you. Each Master Artist has 8-12 Associate Artists in workshops, in a beautiful, secluded setting hidden on the coast of central Florida. (Birdwatching! Manatees! The beach!) There’s an application deadline coming up soon, and if these aren’t people you want to study with, keep checking back.
I won’t be teaching there; this isn’t a promo for me, it’s just because of how much I loved my time there. (If you insist on studying with me, check my website).
