Due to Hurricane Maria, the workshop is on hold until we get a better idea of how quickly Puerto Rico is able to rebuild and function once again.
Our workshop retreats have been designed in a way that combine funs, rest and adventure along with Carmen Lund’s signature approach to painting and experiential creative activities. In the past the yearly workshops have been held on the stunninly beautiful island of Vieques in the Carribean. Let’s hope we can organize another creative workshop/playcation in the near future…

A talk at the Historic Trust of Vieques
The Art of Seeing Vieques Up Close and Beautiful:

SEE with new eyes! If you want to paint, write, photograph or any other creative activity, first you need to see with your own eyes!

January 13, 2017

Discover the artist in you. Learn why Seeing is such a positive experience and how it can change and enrich your daily life. Seeing turns the ordinary into the extraordinary and enhances your days in ways you cannot imagine. Once you are able to SEE with new eyes, you are just steps away from expressing your unique and personal vision in making art.

The presentation, by Carmen Lund, will be held at the Vieques Historical Trust in Esperanca at 5 p.m.

Reach for Success Exhibit

 The Art of SEEing classes are presented weekly by Carmen Lund to the youth of Vieques who are members of the the Reach for Success Club. The club was founded by Carmen Portella as a way to support underserved youth on the island. The youth is made up of individuals who desire to move forward and attain the advantages of higher education and vocational training for themselves and their families.

In February, 2017 Reach for Success held its first annual art exhibit at the Vieques Cultural Center (the old Vieques highschool) . The bold colorful work produced by the participants in this program was hung in this historic and beautiful location in the center of the town. The community came out in overwhelming support of the youth. It was an awesome event. 40 student paintings were sold and later Mama Mia restaurant  generously agreed to donate a wall to permanently exchibit the student’s art work.
