Art and Soul Retreat - Las Vegas, 2011 - Part 1

Imagine my delight when I learned that there is an art retreat held in my state, Nevada.  I was thrilled!  So after months of anticipation, the Art and Soul retreat was held during the first week of March in Las Vegas.  Yes, you heard right, Vegas Baby!

I know, I know...it sounds like an odd location for artsy fartsy types to gather and create.  After attending it myself, I think it worked to perfection.  Lavish hotel rooms, fabulous restaurants and food, tons of things to do, mild weather.

While I was attending my workshops, Hubby gambled, shopped at the HUGE outlet mall, and bombed around town in our rented Dodge Charger.  Check it out; does this look like the face of a bored art husband?  I think not.

Here's happy Hubby after he burned rubber to get me to Michaels for last minute workshop supplies.

The retreat was held at the Green Valley Ranch Hotel-Spa-Casino.  The architecture is done in an old world Italian style, really pretty.

Here's a view from the outside courtyard. 

The first night before workshops began 'Vendor Night' was held.  There were all kinds of goods to browse including artwork, antiques, and check out these cupcakes!

They were as delicious as they were beautiful.

Just amazing!

Here are some of the goodies I grabbed at Vendor Night.  Everyone had fabulous business cards.  I really need to get some decent ones printed up.
