Storytelling in Collage Italy with Roxanne Evans Stout

fourth 2022  
Greetings, you dear friends and artists!

I have a lot to smile about from here in my studio. It feels good to be home after an incredible art retreat in Morocco. It is important to have time to soak it all in and center myself before I travel again, and that is what I’m doing. At the same time, I have a trip coming up next year that I am absolutely ecstatic about, and I want to tell you all of the amazing details!

Beautiful Montelparo, Italy, where we will stay September 16-23, 2023! Imagine Italy in the Autumn with Me The colors, the villages, the coast, a beautiful boutique hotel … All of it for you to savor. Won’t you join me for my beloved workshop, Storytelling with Collage, at the boutique Hotel Leone in Montelparo, Italy, September 16-23, 2023? Register before December 1 to save 150 Euros!

I cannot wait to share my processes and techniques with you! In student-favorite workshop Storytelling with Collage, we will create a handmade artist book or art journal that you will fill with creations during our retreat.

Moroccan Memories…

I am still savoring the experiences and memories from my trip to Morocco in October, where I got to teach a four-day workshop as well as travel the land — including travel by camel! I posted on my Instagram and Facebook pages as I lived those wonderful days, but I wanted to share a few favorites here as well. Thank you so much to Michelle Fletcher for planning and hosting the whole amazing experience, and to all of my dear friends and students from Kasbah Aitisfoul!

Our wonderful guide took us safely through the desert and provided so much fascinating information!
Magic and symbols were everywhere in Morocco!
This was a favorite for me.
I fell in love with the people, the land, the culture, and the camels of Morocco!
Sending love to each of you, my students and friends!
If we were together in Morocco, I feel so blessed and thankful.
And I hope to spend a week with you in beautiful Italy next year!
