I love the people at Creative Arts Camp. They are intelligent, innovative, talented, open hearted, fresh, kind, faithful, principled, and fun. We have fabulous conversations once we get past the pleasantries; we swing from deep and meaningful to hilariously funny. The whole gathering feels like a family reunion, with new folks folded in all the time. I look forward all year to being in community with them, and having missed 2020, this special time was overdue!
Usually I try to get photos of everyone, but with us distancing and/or masked for Covid precautions, this was not feasible. I borrowed a photo from social media (the second below) to show participants inside; all my photos were taken outside and from a distance with a zoom.
Danis the director, in the first and last photo below, has done a beautiful job and this year was her swan song; she’s passing the responsibility off to a wonderful successor for next year.
Sweet spirits all
I love the addition of the dog.
I believe I recognize a few faces from the old days at Newfound. Newfound is where I learned most of my crafting.
Thanks Polly, I miss everyone, but know you all had a good time. I’ve been working too much and find it hard to get away for 8 days.
What a clearly wonderful beautiful fine group! Such joy and creativity!!!
Glad for you all! This made me sign up for an Art League WC class!!!!!
Thanks for sharing the smiles. The dog’s smile, too!!!
Oh Polly…I always look forward to viewing your camp photos, especially the people! It makes my heart sing with joy, seeing all those smiling, familiar faces. Brad and I are in the Pacific NW for the summer, so unfortunately couldn’t join you all. But we’ve seen Julie twice, and thought of you all many times. Next summer we’ll be back on the East Coast, so should be there in August! Hugs to all!
