PLAN A WOODSONGS ARTIST GATHERING on a beautiful autumn day. We will help you. Make plans to host one this fall or in 2023.

WOODSONGS ARTIST GATHERING is a working PICNIC for artists, painters, poets, songwriters and authors. After an afternoon of community and creating – that evening we have a potluck when the poets recite their poetry, the artists display their paintings, the authors read their short stories and the songwriters perform their new compositions. I see it as a way of bringing the community of artisans together to share creative energy and energize mutual encouragement. The events are FREE to the participating artists and FREE to the Hosts. Let’s spread these to different regions around the country!

Well done BUFFY LAWSON and fellow artists at Chenault Vineyard, a great setting!

PAINTERS: Bring your canvas or sketch pad, your easel and your paints and spend the day creating your masterpiece. POETS: Go off to a quiet place and contemplate your deepest feelings and create your epic missive. WRITERS & AUTHORS: We honor your craft, whether you are published or not. Sit under a tree and write the short story that will change culture as we know it. SONGWRITERS: Bring your instrument, pen your lyrics and write your song.

Look, it’s hard enough to be an artist so let’s get together and have a good time 🙂
