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 Own Oracle Deck!' 

Saturday  10 July, 2021 - 10.30am -12pm* 
Saturday  17 July, 2021  - 10.30am -12pm 
Saturday  24 July, 2021 - 10.30am -12pm 

*Finishing times may vary depending how many are in the class. 🙂

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.

Soul Sister Retreat - 7 weeks of sister bliss!

Every Saturday & on-going!  

10.30am-12noon each week   

When you register your place you will gain access to 7 weekly 'live' sessions - and if you miss 1 or 2 sessions, you can simply continue the following week.

So you can register your spot anytime - and if you book with 2 friends one of you gets a spot for free! - and then you can join in on any Saturday and your 7 sessions will start from then. 😊

This is your opportunity to belong to a high vibe tribe, a sisterhood that is awakening to true community that elevates and nurtures us all...

Awaken your creative and transformative powers in this on-going mixed media course that includes much more than just art techniques.

Together, we will be delving deeper into that magical place where art and life meet...

These sessions will be 'live' in order to maximize our togetherness and also so that I can assist everyone individually on their own spiritual art journey.

Breakdown of weekly Soul Sister Sessions:

5  min's   Guided Meditation

15 min's   Presentation of this week's theme and practical demo's

20 min's  Co-creation time - with nice background music (you can dance while you paint!)

10 min's  Check in time, individual feedback, guidance and shared inspo

20 min's  More co-creation time - sometimes with music, sometimes we'll talk while creating...

10 min's   Check in time, feedback, sharing and questions

10 min's   Guidance & suggestions to keep you creatively a-flow for the week ahead

Note: This is a basic format, sometimes there will be more demo's and sometimes you'll enjoy painting alongside as I demo and we'll do it together as a group - it's all intuitively guided, creative, free flowing fabulousness - that you will love being a part of!  💜

Each week we will start a new mixed media artwork and you can choose whether you want to work in an art journal, on paper, on canvas or on the surface of your choice.

You do not need any art experience - and if you do have some experience you will still benefit from the sisterly camaraderie, connection, support and inspiration!

The actual course content will unfold organically each week as I attune to the group's energies & the astrological weather.  Sometimes our session will include an aspect of the moon, for example if it is a new moon, it's a great time for setting goals and intentions and during a waning moon phase we can release what no longer serves us and break old habits.  I'll be giving guidance on how to do these things as well as how to creatively incorporate such themes into some of our our weekly art sessions.

Our sharing and support will be a special part of this course and will provide real nurture for our growth and well-being.

In our artwork each week we will work with a natural theme that will help us align to a higher vibe.  The themes may include flora & fauna or some simple sacred geometry such as the Flower of Life.  Everything will be suitable for all levels of experience and I will demo each step making it easy to follow along.    

You will learn to really trust yourself through this intuitive art process.  This means relinquishing fear and aligning with your divine feminine energies within and allowing this deeper flow to guide your art process.

I'll be on hand every step of the way to guide you on your creative journey.

As you let go and learn the love of this way of creating, you will find it magically flows into all other areas of your life...

Art Supplies - Let's keep it simple and work with what you've got!

Each participant gets a FREE oracle card reading (emailed privately).

Space is limited to 12 participants to ensure adequate individual attention and the cost is

C$105 (about US$82) for 7 sessions.

NOTE: Registration for this course is now closed, but if you have a group of three or more, contact me to see about starting up a new course in summer/autumn 2021.  🙂

Spirit Animal Mixed Media Magic Workshop

Saturday 19 December, 2020     10.30am-12noon

Saturday  26 December, 2020   10.30am-12noon

Saturday    2 January,  2021      10.30am-12noon

This workshop is a light hearted way to connect with the beautiful spirit of an animal totem; one that has meaning for you.  I will offer guidance on ways to find your animal totem to use in your mixed media artwork - and show you how to keep it simple, more child-like or like folk art.  Once you've found an animal or bird image that resonates with you I will show you how to incorporate it into a colourful, layered work of mixed media magic! 

 

In these sessions first we will begin with a mini meditation to get us all relaxed, more present and ready to have fun with mixed media, including making our own simple collage paper in a way that's simple and easy.  You will learn how to create luscious backgrounds using torn papers, including our own handwriting on paper and using acrylic paints & other art supplies to fabulous effect!  I will demo everything, making it easy to follow along.

As well, all my workshops are always peppered with lots of tips to help you stay inspired and in the creative flow...

Note: the finishing time may vary depending on how many are in the class (if there are fewer it may finish a little earlier and if there are more of us it may go slightly over).  Space is limited to 12 people for this intuitive art workshop.
