I can't believe how quickly life flies by!! In one week I will be traveling to AZ to teach at Art Unraveled. I am so excited to meet new kindred spirits and give hugs to those that have already touched my life.
I will be participating in the Saturday Market Day with lots of personal work for sale, then kicking my heals up with a lot of the other instructors in a mad art making contest that evening!
I am looking forward to Saturday's fun, however the following 3 days are what moves my soul and gets me excited. Three full days of sharing, teaching, connecting, and watching newly aquatinted friends learn and grow as artists. Yes, this is were my bliss comes from. My natural high.
Below are the three fantastic workshops I am teaching this year. Even though my Learning to See class is bursting at the seams, I may have a little room to squeeze a few more in... Transferring Memories is also almost full, but has room for a few more. The Savage Mirror will be an intimate class, but has been potent and life changing for past students. It truly is one of my favorite classes to teach.
Transferring Memories : Sunday
In this workshop we will learn over a dozen different techniques on how to transfer images and text directly into a handmade origami memory book!
Learning to See : Monday
Learning to draw isn't about learning how to use a pencil (we all know how to hold a pencil), it is about learning to see the world around you. I'll be teaching my visual journaling style + shading values techniques with a pencil that will bring depth and dimension to all your journal pages.
The Savage Mirror : Tuesday
He who knows others is wise. He who knows himself is enlightened. ~ Lua Tzu
Lets spend a day getting to know ourselves, seeing ourselves for who we truly are or where we really want to be. Don’t be intimidated by the thought of having to draw a portrait, we will get around that!! I promise. We come to the mirror to express what is in our hearts, through the use of guided exercises, collage, expressive drawing, painting, and writing. The savage mirror reflects those traits and dreams that the human eye cannot see but are nonetheless obvious when revealed.
If you have any questions about my workshops please feel free to contact me. I would love to hear from you!!
