CREATE Registration Now Open!

Create logoI'm so excited to finally announce that registration is open! Join us for CREATE, the first annual Cloth Paper Scissors Retreat, August 25-29, 2010, at the Rosemont Hotel O'Hare in Rosemont, Illinois (just outside of Chicago).
create websiteI know you've all been waiting patiently to see what we have in store for our first-ever CREATE with Cloth Paper Scissors art retreat. The website has all the information you need to know about travel, accommodations, workshops, instructor bios, events, and schedules.
We're also really looking forward to the Artists' Faire which takes place from 6:00-9:00pm on Friday, August 27th. This is your opportunity to shop for interesting and unique supplies, and one-of-a-kind artworks from Artist Instructors, local and national artists and more.

The price for the Full Package is $595 through May 11, 2010. The one-time registration fee of $45 is waived with this option. After May 11, the Full Package price is $635. Kit fees vary by class and are in addition to the class registration cost.
Those interested in the Pay-Per-Class option (or as I like to call it, A La Carte) can start registering on May 12th.


The retreat takes place at the Rosemont Hotel at O'Hare, just outside of Chicago, which makes for easy travel planning and we have secured a great rate for the weekend.

The Artist Instructor bios are all available on the site so you can see and read about each one. Our instructors have a wide range of talents and accomplishments, including many with Cloth Paper Scissors articles, books, gallery shows, and DVD workshops. Our Artist Instructors will fill your retreat with inspiration, knowledge, and a whole lot of fun. The hardest part of attending is choosing which workshops you want to take—and with the Artist Instructors we have teaching at CREATE, we didn't make that an easy job.
