The Hambidge Center for the Creative Arts & Sciences (Part 1, 12.15.18)
If you don’t apply, you’ll never get it.
I’ve been rejected many, many times over my career as an artist. There are lean seasons, and times when the tide shifts — mostly because the work I’m making improves!
For years, I dreamed of attending The Hambidge Center for the Creative Arts & Sciences. It’s gorgeous, rural, mountains, a lot of private, and pristine nature. Real people live and work there. But, it’s different than hustle of Charlotte’s urban living:)
I got on a waiting list this last time applying. Over the summer, I found out a spot had opened up. (I had pitched what I really needed was to exhale, be in nature — around water, to paint, and paint, and paint some more.)
