What a fantastic roller coaster ride 2012 was! We have so much to be grateful for at artstream with a full roster of enthusiastic students, gifted teachers, an incredible intern lovely design clients, super supportive customers and exhibiting artists from around the globe. We are so very thankful!
Personally we are thankful as well. We enjoyed good health and a sweet loving family, surrounded by creative and intelligent friends. I'm very excited (and thankful!) about finishing up two more art books for children (and adventurous adults!) one which will be designed by my husband Rainer as well as the other having a cover designed by him too! Thank you Quarry Books for believing in my ideas! Art Lab for Kids has been a success (thankful again!) and has been translated into German and Russian as well as being released around the world in English.
Daughter Chloe applied for early acceptance at Massachusetts College of Art and Design and was accepted! (much celebration and happiness all around..) Daughter Grace moved into her own place with her boyfriend Matt (whom we love) and is rounding out her work with an internship in publishing.
So where will these snowy steps of early 1/13 lead? So many wonderful places!
We are welcoming back students in two weeks with fresh new classes and new workshops - Jewelry, clay and handmade books! New exhibits starting with Prints of the Year - 40 printmakers from New Hampshire working in fine art print making techniques. Exciting! There are many other events in the gallery which we will unfold over the coming weeks too. So, where will your 2013 lead?
