Indulge Yourself

Creative University, an Institute of Inspiration

Welcome to Creative University, an annual scrapbooking and papercrafting retreat for inspiration, education and relaxation. This event is unlike any other. The best of both worlds, you'll rev up your creative juices with inspiring hands-on classes plus experience ample free time to crop and craft. Enjoy delicious home-style meals, cozy camp surroundings with fireplaces in every craft room and breathtaking scenery.

Located in beautiful North Idaho, at camp Lutherhaven, Creative University began in 2008. Less than an hour's drive from Spokane, WA, you can leave your cares behind as you enjoy  the beauty of nature at this waterfront location on the shores of Lake Coeur d'Alene. Your host is Tresa Black, nationally published artist and teacher.  Tresa has been a professional artist and designer for over 25 years, and strives to bring you a memorable experience with attention to every detail at Create U. You can see more of Tresa on her popular video channel and "Fabulously Artsy" blog.
