A wonderful opportunity to tune in and paint your own Goddess in the new funky Garden Studio at my home in Mayfield, West Edmonton.

There will be a lot of artsy Goddess images to inspire you and help you tune into a resonance that will make your Goddess painting a meaningful personal experience. We will begin by loosening up with luscious background layers and then begin to bring our unique Goddess paintings to life.
You will be provided with a long length of wallpaper, acrylic paints and brushes, however if you want to paint your Goddess on canvas, please bring one that's large & rectangular eg, 24x36" or 24x30" and if you have favourite paints/colours/palette bring these as well. Afternoon tea/coffee and cookies is also included! This is going to be a fab workshop to take on it's own or as a prelude to the wonderful two day Goddess Painting Retreat which is scheduled for the last weekend in May.

'Our Lady of Guadalupe'
Mixed media workshop
Saturday 16 May 10am-4pm at The Paint Spot
In this class you will create your own iconic 'Our Lady of Guadalupe' mixed media piece, using images provided for you as well as other collage materials and ephemera. We will begin by preparing our panels and selecting background collage papers. You will then lay out your images including the main image of Guadalupe, your flowers and her crown. Create a bespoke border with Japanese chiyogami strips and finish by adding some stamps, gel markers for additional colour and tinting, gold stars and glitter paper to finish. All supplies will be provided, just bring a 6x12" birch panel. We will factor in a trip to La Boule for added sustenance as always. No previous experience required, just show up and have fun!

Art Parties! Great for Birthdays, Workplace Team Building & Private Events...
Would you like to enjoy yourself and have fun being creative? You can easily organise a few friends or work colleagues and invite me to the venue of your choice (it could be your lounge room or your boardroom) and I will bring everything needed for a fun 3 hour class at $45 per person (minimum 5 persons required) which includes all supplies - no one needs to be artsy, I'll make it easy and we'll all go step by step. This is especially great for people who work together but rarely socialize or spend time together apart from in the work arena - it's a great way to see a different side of each other and have fun together! Being creative is also well documented to relieve stress, improve feelings of well-being and promote out-of-the-box thinking - so that when you do go back to work, you'll find that new creative solutions to problems may well appear! I can also taylor make the workshop to suit your theme and you can decide whether your group will make one big artwork or individual smaller ones. Please contact me to discuss what would best suit you and let's conjure up some creative magic mojo!
