So now I’m back from my maiden voyage as a course leader with Creative Capital’s “Internet for Artists” workshop, and I’m still percolating on the experience. For one thing, I’m already planning my next trip to Providence, Rhode Island. Providence is a hothouse of creative people and ideas, and I look forward to going back to enjoy it to the fullest with my new friends!
