Using Zoom to join one of my new online art classes is easy. Once you register for a class I will send you the link to join and then you're just one click away from participating.  You just need a laptop or Ipad and a space to create (kitchen table works.)  Unwind, tune out the craziness of the world and create your own colourful world with me and kindred spirits.  You need no prior experience to enjoy any of these online art workshops. 

You will feel better and have more energy...

Creativity is the bomb! (just sayin).

Create your very own mixed media oracle cards using simple yet effective techniques that anyone can learn. The value of using oracle cards in your life is magnified when you have created each card yourself - nothing fits you and your own soul journey better!  This is a 3 part 'live' workshop and in our first session I will give an overview of creating an oracle deck and the difference between using oracle cards verses tarot.  In our first session we will begin by collaging our backgrounds and beginning to create our unique oracle deck.

You will learn how to find the words and images that speak directly to you.  You will also learn how to put it all together, including various ways of adding the words and images, giving your cards real meaning - that's just perfect for you!

In our second session we will spend time checking in to see how each of us is creating our cards and I can give individual feedback.  There are various factors that make an oracle deck work and you'll receive direct guidance, making it easy for you to bring it all together.  It is also wonderful for all of us to be both inspired and encouraged as we see what each of us is uniquely creating.  As we continue working on our deck together in our virtual classroom, I will demonstrate how to add some fun finishing details to your cards.

Then in our final session together as you complete your deck, you will learn the different ways that you can use your cards to uplift and inspire yourself every day.  I will share with you the ways I use my own oracle cards for meaningful guidance and also tell you where and how to get your oracle deck published if you'd like to get some printed.  Space is limited to 12 participants to ensure adequate individual attention and the cost is C$79 (about US$65) for all 3 sessions.  

Once you have booked I will send you the Zoom link and basic supply list right away, (usually the same day).
