“What we do”
11 years ago, in a casual conversation, I asked Shelley what our plans might be for retirement. She said that we should do what we‘ve always done with our lives – make a difference for others, use our home as a retreat space and nurture creativity. “We could work together and hold creative workshops. All you have to do is build a studio,” she said.
In 2005 we had a foundation poured and I began the process of building a 2 story addition to our home – a studio space above a garage/workshop. It took me 3 years to rough it in, roof it, build the windows, do the electrical, the plumbing, siding, floor, decks and trim. By 2008 it was a usable space and we began holding creative workshops to see just how it functioned.
It works great.
To nurture the creative spirit by exploring a “fresheye” studio experience with new and old friends.
“What we’ve accomplished”
Since 2008, we’ve held numerous creative workshops and gatherings of groups and individuals that include: an artist gallery exhibition, art process activities, a corporate association meeting, a team building retreat, various school visiting art classes, life coaching, reflective supervision events and others.
We look forward to offering other interesting ways to use our space.
