It is well documented that being creative has many health benefits; it reduces anxiety, depression & stress and promotes feelings of well-being and inner calm. As someone who has practiced being creative for many years, I can also tell you that it can do more than just that - it can lead you into magical, alchemical and most marvelous spaces! This 5 week course combines intuitive painting and mixed media techniques to unleash your creativity and connect you to a deeper flow. In committing to a 5 week live online class, you are already half way there in terms of manifesting true creative freedom and doing it in a group means greater support and camaraderie, which we all need now more than ever. These sessions are live and not recorded to make it all more real, present and connective. Not only will we explore different techniques each week, but we will

You'll see how your art practice is reflected in your life and there will be a prescription at the end of each class to help bring what you are learning
into other areas of your daily life between our creativity sessions.
I will be sharing lots of techniques and practical demo's as well as sharing personal tips that continue to help me to stay inspired & creative. As the course progresses the magic within you shall increasingly manifest in the art you are creating without - as you work on your choice of an art journal, on canvas, gessoed birch panel, or on watercolour or mixed media paper. 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. At the start of each class there will be a mini meditation to drop deeper into the here and now, giving us a clear space from which to allow our free flow of creativity. There will be plenty of demo's, opportunities for questions, individual attention and time to share our process with the group.
You will end up with 1 - 3 finished artworks at the end of the course, depending on your personal rhythm and how active you are between sessions.
week 1: Loosen up with intuitive painting techniques and collage to create fabulous backgrounds as you learn about colour harmony, balance and dialogue.
week 2: Learn the deeper flow of connecting with your process, the value of commitment and flexibility and how to change what you don't like - giving you a greater sense of creative freedom.
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!

Chakra Art E-course - 7 weeks, every Sunday starting 25 October and ends
on 8 December, 2020 The time is 10.30am-12.30pm Alberta (or MT) time.
I'm excited to offer this mixed media online e-course as it's combines the spiritual truths of our chakra energy centers with the joy of creativity in a fun and unique way. Together, we will focus on a new chakra each Sunday, creating a mixed media wheel that has meaning and includes words that speak directly to you.
You will learn what each chakra represents and focus on wellness by seeing what comes up for you as you answer the little quiz I will present each week and then incorporating positive words that will help you to balance that chakra and have it spinning happily in your life. I was amazed when I did the demo piece for this
e-course in how it helped bring awareness to that area of my life and bring out the higher version of what that chakra represents - it works!
Each week we will begin with a mini guided meditation to help us to go within, feel relaxed and ready for our group creativity session. Then you will spontaneously answer some questions in order to see where you're at regarding the properties of each chakra and what is true for you. We will begin our circular artwork on watercolour or mixed media paper (or in your art journal if you prefer) and I will give clear demo's every step of the way as well as regular 'check-in's' to make sure everyone is happily creating their chakra wheel. You will learn how to work with different textures, acrylic paint, collage papers, stencils and other mixed media, including different ways to add the words, making a unique artwork that will directly affect your own well-being. Don't we all need this in our lives right now more than ever? We are all going through so much, and working on our chakras in a supportive and nurturing group is a wonderful way to support ourselves as we all continue to transform individually and collectively. We will meet 'live' and in person each week online, rather than have recorded sessions to watch alone - so you will need to show up each week in order to real group to help with any issues or practical
camaraderie as well as having me there
maximize the benefit of
diffiulties in real time.
The EARLY BIRD PRICE is: C$120 (about US$90) - for all 7 sessions and space is limited as always to 12 spots. Click here to register and I will send you the zoom links and supply list usually the same day.
