Summer is beginning and my heart is overflowing…because that’s exactly what my camps are doing! SO many kiddos signed up to write songs and dig into their authentic creative selves and I can’t wait. I spent the morning wrestling with my new microphones and recording software but I believe I’ve beat them into submission and all will go smoothly during our camp sessions. I imagine these songs like butterflies that are all resting in cocoons till the young songwriters converge and softly (or loudly) coax them out of their shells and into our lives. If you know me, then you might be smiling to yourself as that’s a bit more flowery than is usually my style but seriously. It’s going to be an incredible summer.
So here’s the scoop.. The camp in Austin, TX June 1-4 is FULL.
Twisp, WA is FULL but I hate saying no so if you register soon I’ll probably say yes. It’s being held June 15-19 1-4pm at The Methow Community School. The fee is $155
June 29 – July 3rd – Gabriel’s Art Kids in Bellingham, WA still has 2 spots left!! 9am- 12pm for five days with a CD release concert at The Honeymoon. $135
July 17 – 19th ORCAS ISLAND!!!! A very gracious person offered their beautiful cottage for us to work out of. Lots of space as this one was just scheduled. Let’s do this!!
For all of you who have signed up… here is some pre-camp homework:)
- Get a journal that you LOVE and decorate the cover with whatever art supplies inspire you most.
- Write or draw in it for at least ten minutes every morning about any topic that comes to mind.
- Have an impromptu dance party alone or with a close friend at least once this week.
- Look in the mirror every day and notice how amazing you are.
P.S. A few weeks ago I had a booth and showcase at The Mini Makers Faire in Austin, TX and met so many creative kids. We wrote a boatload of songs and had a blast. Here’s some pictures!!
