In our trusted group, we shall share our realizations and breakthroughs which will help us all to raise our vibration - for real. All levels of experience are welcome, including beginners.

There will be plenty of demo's, opportunities for questions, individual attention and time to share our process with the group.

week 3: Discover the power of words via a brief writing exercise, from which you will draw to incorporate into your artwork, giving greater meaning and added interested to your mixed media creations.
week 4: In this session you'll learn why Bold is Gold, how to stay loose, embrace 'happy accidents,' appreciate the process and your individual journey.
week 5: Learn the different ways to give your artworks finishing details, so relaxing and enjoyable at the end of our course - and I will give you lots of tips on how to keep your creative heartbeat alive and flourishing!
