Budding Art Ideas - New Workshop

Starting this years, Ann Arbor Michigan will be the home of a new art workshop venue, Budding Art Ideas.

I will be teaching Ask "What if?": Building Pathways to Creative Work June 7-10 and invite you to join me in this exceptional setting.

Alone Together

The workshops will be held in the classroom area of the Matthaei Botanical Gardens at the University of Michigan and June will be the perfect time to experience this environment while building your studio skills.

The organizers and hosts of Budding Art Ideas are Diane E. Bennett and Joy Naylor.

Diane is the owner of Budding Ideas and was inspired to establish Budding Art Ideas after attending a Crow Barn Workshop in 2009. She has an extensive background as corporate interior designer, art curator and art consultant and is excited about the creative possibilities of this new venture.

Joy has worked directing design projects with Diane at Distinct Design Inc since it's establishment and she is a professionally certified Feng Shui practitioner.

They have secured a wonderful lineup of classes and instructors and you can read all about my workshop as well as all the classes and venue at:


  1. Congratulations! Looks like an inspiring place to be teaching and learning. I wish I could join your class, I'll be at Shakerag in June. sigh...

  2. I don't know what artists do if they aren't what-iffers. I like the contraction.
