what's to come in 2012...

without further ado, i want to share with you some of my plans for the coming year. it's big stuff.  stuff i never ever dreamed would happen to me sort of stuff.  it is the stuff of dreams, and i am incredibly excited to share the news with you here today...
so here it goes... first off, this spring, i'll be doing something i've wanted to do for a long time now...  

coming in april!

then, in september i'll be back at squam art workshops in new hampshire, my all-time favorite place to teach.  


after teaching in the magical woods of squam in new hampshire, i'll be headed south to the beach to teach at squam by the sea in the outer banks of north carolina.  a beautiful place i cannot wait to experience again!

but i may have just saved the best for last... this year, for the first time, squam art workshops will also take place in italy!  i am still pinching myself over this one...  so yes, this year i'll be teaching in italy!  


i have so much to say about all how all of this came to be, but that will be saved next week.   i'll be sharing a lot more "behind the scenes" sorts of things with you in a new series of wednesday blog posts i'm calling, wait for it, behind the scenes, brilliant title, i know! ha! ;)

but for today, i just had to blurt it all out!  

i SO hope i'll get a chance to see you at one of these workshops!  for all the details and to sign up, head on over the beautiful new squam art workshops website...  everything you need to know is there, and registration for all sessions opens next week!

  1. OMG - everything looks fantastic!!! congratulations, Sarah!
    I cannot wait to hear more about your on-line workshop : )

  2. Sounds so wonderful! Oh how I would love to take your class in Italy...I've been dreaming of going to SQUAM and can't believe there's one in Europe (I live in Germany) this year! I HAVE to make it happen! :)

  3. All of that sounds terribly exciting! Congratulations on achieving some dreams :-)
    And can't wait to hear more about what goes on Behind The Scenes!!

  4. Yayyyyy! So happy for you Sarah! 2012 is going to be amazing! Xoxo

  5. Oh how I'd love to join you at Squam or even Italy, but that is not in the cards at the moment. But I cannot wait to sign up for your online class!!

  6. hey sylvia! nice to see you :) thanks for saying hello & i will be back soon with details about the online workshop... it's gonna be good!

    SO happy to hear from you natalie, thanks for stopping in. glad to hear you are looking forward to the behind the scenes stuff... i've been wanting to do this for a long time! :)

    thea- thank you my dear! oxoxo

    emily- I SO understand... my hope is that the online workshop will be the next best thing for those who can't make it to a squam. i know how you feel, there's no way i could swing going to squam as a student these days... saving pennies for a house and having a little one doesn't leave a whole lot of money for such treats. here's hoping the online class is doable for you! :) yay! thanks for saying hello!

  7. Wow, congratulations! Such exciting news. I would love to be able to attend Squam but it isn't in the cards for me this year I am afraid so I am looking forward to your online class.

    I DID dig into your book today and started a Sarah inspired painting today and I am so excited to be brave with paint and play with your techniques!

  8. What a wonderful welcome to 2012. Congrats to you. I'm looking forward to your April workshop.

  9. Congratulations Sarah! What exciting plans for the year ahead! I bought a copy of your book a few months ago, and I've enjoyed it so much. I love the color palette that you use, and I especialy enjoyed your sketch book and scrap book ideas! I can't wait for your online workshop! Best wishes for all your new ventures!

  10. Those are most exciting events to look forward to! Congrats and good travels.

  11. I am so excited for you and especially (for me personally!) about the online workshop as I won't be able to come to squam or italy, much as i would love to. Hurrah for you Sarah ! All the best for the year ahead, i love your work. x

  12. Well I'm definitely signing up for your online class when registration opens!!


thanks so much for saying hello! i do my best to reply to comments, please know i read and appreciate each and every one! xo *s
