Clay Day Play Day: Virtual Retreat with 22 Polymer Clay Artists as Instructors

For those of us who want to learn more about polymer clay and all the creative projects that can be made using this medium, and for those looking to increase their skills and imaginative art creations, the 2015 PCA Virtual Retreat Experience is coming soon.

In a first of its kind debut, the PCA Virtual Retreat Experience features a year-long learning experience with 22 of the medium's top artists and teachers coming into your home via the Internet. That's right -- we don't have to go to them -- these teachers will be coming to us.

I think this is an amazing way to bring instruction in polymer clay to the masses. I've considered attending polymer clay retreats in the past, but both the price and the distance were prohibitive. For the price of what just one such in-person retreat would cost, I can have the retreats come to me. I can view them whenever I want; repeat what I might not have understood initially and delve into some aspects of polymer clay I haven't yet explored.

Whether this virtual retreat will be the beginning of other such retreats in other areas of art and crafting remains to be seen. It is a unique opportunity for those of us interested in polymer clay.

It's on my wish list for Christmas.

I'm sure we're just seeing the tip of the iceberg as to the possibilities, too. It's exciting!

I am not into clay but what a neat idea to have them come to you via the internet. Hmmm, wonder what I can find that I would enjoy?

This is really cool. I think I'd want to do something like this sometime.

So many educational experiences can be obtained virtually these days. Now you don't have to actually visit the California missions to tour them or enjoy living history days. I think it's wonderful that arts and crafts can also be learned online now. I will bet almost anything can be learned this way now.
