THE WANDERING ARTIST RETREAT
Meet me in marfa - Sept 14-17, 2023
That's right, The Wandering Artist is heading to Marfa, Texas! The Wandering Artist is a long weekend hosted by Sara Johansen, taking place in various locations. Previous location includes the North Shore of Lake Superior in Northern Minnesota, but this year it's headed south!
Always lusting after time for creative freedom and experimenting, I feel it is extra important as a photographer and artist to get away, recharge, be inspired and meet other creatives.
“Sara's retreat was so pivotal in my journey in 2022. There’s truly no words how I felt so welcome, not just as a film newbie or a person with a chronic illness but as a friend out having fun learning and shooting. The confidence and growth gave me the courage to follow my heart both in photography and life.
Sara is a beautiful person with a big heart & an amazing teacher.”
“I'm at the point in my photography journey that all I really want out of a retreat is for someone to make things easy - provide a place to connect with like-minded artists, take me to amazing photo destinations and light a little fire under my creative soul so I can't wait to pick up my camera. This is exactly what I got from this retreat and so much more. It's the perfect way to connect with yourself and others, and explore new places and inspirations!”
“When Sara plans and executes a creative retreat you can rest easy that every detail is meticulously planned and well thought out. Every moment of the retreat was like a big hug for my creative soul. When imposter syndrome was kicking in, she could tell. Sara showed me that she cared about me but also about me being the best I could be creatively. I felt seen. And loved. And safe in Sara's hands at the retreat.”
THE WANDERING ARTIST - GUEST ARTIST
One thing I wanted to bring into The Wandering Artist was a guest artist for the weekend. Each retreat, the guest artist will change, with a new photographer and artist to come along for the weekend, share their knowledge, art and more. I'm so excited to have this feature so I can continually be offering new education with my weekend retreats.
