Welcoming These Artists to Denise Fleming’s Artist-in-Residency

Sep 23, 2017 | Community Good News, The Highlights Foundation Experience

I am so looking forward to being there at the most beautiful time of the year working, sharing, wandering. This kind of retreat sparks so many ideas–ideas we can share and expand on. A time to give and receive feedback on our works in progress. Space to play, make new friends, throw out ideas. Sketch, paint, maybe make leaf art. Play is important to our work. Such fun to have time to play with others who share the same interests in such wonderful surroundings. I am looking forward to seeing you at Highlights.

Cheers, Denise

Don’t forget there will be s’mores.
Make sure you bring a sweatshirt and warm socks.
Bring art supplies.
You can schedule critique time in the evenings.

We asked the artists who will be joining Denise to give us a sneak peek at what they’ll be working on:

Beth Bogert

Carolyn Dee Flores

Emma Virjan

Jennifer Gibson

Thanks to all of the artists for sending us this preview. We can’t wait to see more at your retreat!
