True Free Spirit - new class!

I'm so thrilled to announce a new class offering for the new year. I'm trying something a bit different for this class......it will run all year long with one new project each month. I have lots of fun, amazing things planned for 2013. Things like: True free spirit girl (see above), totem spirit animal, art inspired by the "masters" and lots more. 

I love the idea of allowing projects come organically as the year goes on so expect surprises around every corner. We will learn what it means to be a TRUE FREE SPIRIT girl as we embark on the journey of our imperfections and vulnerabilities. Those very sacred intricacies bloom into your own chalice of knowledge. Realizing what we then saw as flawed, suddenly becomes a strength that we cling to....defining our true essence.

We will become explorers of our TRUE selves....tapping into our hearts to find that piece of magic. I believe, finding those heart-fluttering moments takes time and persistence. Trying different things and exploring is the key to tapping into your creative well. Through this practice, you will make discoveries and beautiful accidents that will begin to define YOU as an artist.

As you continue on this path, you grow.....(sometimes its an uncomfortable growth and seemingly artistic block) but we must learn to celebrate during this time. Because this is where the magic lies. You are transforming. Emerging. If you can push through these rough spells.....well, on the other end of that bridge comes the most exciting work. 

Come join me as we journey through the beautiful murkiness together. Let's let go. Paint free. And discover what is aching to be seen.

Each month, the supply list could be different. I will add a few finds along the way.
 Not to worry, I'll keep it simple and affordable!




I will have a detailed supply list with links at signup but here's basically what you'll need:

mod-podge 
flourescent paint
sharpie paint pens
water soluble oil pastels
ephemera (old wallpaper, napkins, ledger paper, receipts, etc)
brushes
any acrylic paint colors you adore
gesso-board
foam stamps
glitter media (stickles, etc)

I will be using all of these materials throughout the course. This is a good base of supplies that you can do a lot of things with.
