Fall 2015 Offerings

Bold Layering: from attachment to healthy detachment 

** Fourth Tuesday of the Month, September 22, October 27, November 24, and December 22, 2015 **
** 6:30-9pm each night **

Are you interested in decreasing your attachment to results and perfection? Do you long to embrace the journey of your life in all of its stages? This series will challenge you to work on a single canvas from week to week, adding a layer at a time, exploring color and texture with various prompts. In the end, the canvas will represent a journey that is impossible to replicate by you or anyone else, it will uniquely represent YOU and your journey!

LIMIT: 8 participants

COST: $60 for the series (click title above to register)

Reflective Art Mini-Retreat??

I am considering offering a mini-retreat, all day reflective art event this fall/winter and would love your thoughts on dates for the event. So, if this event sounds like something you would be interested in, please respond to the poll below.

DESCRIPTION: We would get together for a loosely structured session including all necessary supplies needed for creating art pieces (small to large canvases). I will guide and prompt the process of layering  and creating. Additionally there will be some built in reflective times for contemplation and quiet.

This poll will be open through the end of September, 2015. Thanks so much for your input!
