Description

STARTS Wednesday, September 7th!

Many of us have full lives or get busy, but some may know how important it is to keep making art because we know the benefits our art-making practices bring into our bodies, minds, + lives. When we do it on a regular basis we feel the difference. It’s challenging for some of us to keep a regular practice of anything, yet we often see others thriving at it on Social Media. After 30 + years of having a daily art practice, I want to share what’s worked for me. Please join me in 8 different games + exercises, a variety of tips + tricks, and  some myth busting in order to make it happen! You can use whatever media you choose.

This is an adult course, but teens are welcome to participate as well. Children under 13 may accompany an adult taking the course or be accompanied by an adult.

COST: BY DONATION (students have been paying anywhere from $5 – $50 per class which comes out to $20-$200 for the whole course.) Please pay what matches your financial means and needs, even if you cannot afford to pay.

DATES: We will meet Wednesdays September 7, 14, 21, 28 AND October 5, 12, 19, 26 

**NOTE – This course will be running 8 weeks in September and October. You can choose to sign up for either month or both. PLEASE ADJUST YOUR PAYMENT ACCORDINGLY. You will receive all 8 classes (live and recorded) no matter what as well as a BONUS of access links to live + recorded Tuesday class and YOU get to choose when you want to join us. 

Each class will be recorded that day and the link to view it will be sent along with the notes from the class each week. Recorded classes are only available to those who register for the class so we can keep a safe and nurturing space for those to express themselves.

SUPPLIES:  You get to choose what media you want to work in. You can keep it the same each week or use different media for each class. Even though this is not a techniques class, depending on who shows up and what everyone is using, there may be some demonstrations.
