Longwood Gardens-A haven for inspiration

One of the jewels of the Brandywine Valley- Longwood Gardens

A surprise opportunity to throw clay with a Nicaraguan potter.

I had the distinct pleasure of traveling to Nicaragua with my family on my birthday this year. We spent four nights in San Juan Del Sur taking in the beach and the beautiful Nicaraguan landscape and sunshine. From there we moved on to the beautiful Spanish colonial town of Granada. When most people think of Nicaragua they remember the days of the Sandinista- Contra war of the 1980's, but that time is well over and Nicaragua is a peaceful, warm and welcoming place.

Here's a fun art game: Exquisite Corpse

Beat the winter blues by gathering your friends or family together to play this fun game that requires only a pen or pencil and a piece of paper. It's called Exquisite corpse, or Exquisite cadaver and was invented by the Surrealists. Andre Breton, Dali, Yves Tangauy, Marcel Duchamp, Man Ray among others were early players. Originally, the game was played using words, no doubt due to it's creation by Breton, a surrealist poet. Eventually the game morphed into drawing and collage.
