REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN
I have some wonderful & exciting news! I am going to be teaching on Life Book 2016 next year!
I’m beyond honored to be a part of this year long, immersive, healing and inspiring course! This class has truly changed people’s lives and to contribute to the ongoing creative development and wellbeing of others is something that means the world to me as an Art educator.
“Life Book, a celebration and honoring of YOU” is a year-long mixed media art class organized by Tamara Laporte from Willowing Arts.
Tam is joined by 23 incredible art teachers who are all gearing up to share their mixed media techniques, tips and tricks with YOU! Look at all these beautiful, shining souls! Wow…such a glowing line up of artists! So special to be a part of this group!
Themed around self-development and healing, you’ll be creating several loose mixed media art journal pages per month which by the end of the year you will bind into a glorious journal (a Life Book)! You will have a wonderful keepsake that you can treasure for the rest of your life!
You can find out a lot more about this wildly popular course (it has been joined by over 8700 people in the past!) by clicking HERE.
I’m thrilled with my class concepts and can’t wait to share several mixed media techniques with you that will involve collage, painting, intuitive drawing, writing and even some encaustic wax! You know I can’t keep my paws off the wax! Here’s a little peek my creative musings for the class plus my lesson descriptions…
For my Bonus lesson:
“Patch it up, Make it Shine” (January 2016)
We will be journaling about the negative things we wish to leave behind us in 2015. Through a process of collage, paint and drawing we will “patch” over these words and replace them with loving, positive intentions, words, images and finally metallic paints and inks! We will carry renewed light and uplifting thoughts with us as we welcome 2016! This project is going to produce a gorgeous art journal page to start the year off right! Plus, who doesn’t love a little sparkle and shine!
For my Main lesson:
“Be your own Angel” (September)
Through exploring our thoughts and feelings through written exercises about self protection and self love we will discover what these things look like in our life and how we can practice more self-care in our day to day. Using personal symbolism, creating powerful mantras and revealing our inner divine we will create our own “Angel Self-Portrait” – a mixed media, collage (including photos of ourselves) and encaustic wax page that will represent our highest self, full of love, healing and self-acceptance. By empowering ourselves with self-care and self-love we can truly protect our hearts from what drains us and keeps us feeling small.
