‘Creating the Masterpiece’ WorkShop

candid group shooting

One of the biggest highlights of our year is hosting the ‘Creating the Masterpiece’ workshops here at Jonker Portrait Galley in Apple Valley, Minnesota.  This is our candid class picture from May 2011.
We have now officially turned our home into a B & B for the workshops.  It was wonderful having everyone stay here for the duration of the time.  I really feel that this gives the workshop a different dynamic and we had a great group of people for our workshop over Labor Day weekend.
Attendees comments:
“I know what you mean.  I really missed my family, but I really miss the fun and all the learning and inspiration at your workshop.  To anyone reading this entry, attend JuliAnne’s workshop(s) if you get the chance.  You won’t regret it.  : )”

JuliAnne, thanks sooooo much for being an absolutely wonderful instructor/mentor.

You hosted a great workshop this past weekend!


So right now I am on a creative retreat with seven others from around the country with JuliAnne Jonker.  Here are a few images inspired by Monet, JuliAnne’s lake and the artist of bygone eras.

    I have never been to a more wonderful and inspiring workshop in my life. Julianne spent so much time and energy in making us all comfortable that all we had to do was engulf ourselves in creating art. Her guidance and direction was catered to each of us as individuals and we were encouraged to be bold in our personal definitions of who we were and who we wanted to become as photographers and as artists. I can not thank her enough for the inspiration I received and the confidence to pursue my dreams. Julianne, you mean the world to me and I am thankful always for our time together.

  2. Ahhh look at this picture! I can barely see Leslie crouched down back there. lol. I love it – it brings back so many fun memories! It’s amazing how we came in as strangers and in just a few short days, left as family – I suppose any experience where you learn, grow and “find” yourself again with a group of amazing people will make you feel that way. Seriously an amazing experience – JuliAnne blends the technical part of photography and the emotional side so seamlessly. You will really tap into the artist in you and fall in love with photography all over again!
    A completely unforgettable weekend!

  3. JuliAnne, a hugh thank you for the amazing Creative Retreat you hosted at your home. You and Kurt were absolutely the best hosts, every detail was handled with such care. It was such a fantastic group of artists, gathered together, we became fast friends. You shared so much of your art and soul, and inspired me to bring my photography and paintings to new heights. I particularly enjoyed all the hands on.
    Thanks again and hope I get to come out and join you for another retreat one day.
