Upcoming Workshops!

I’m so excited to share with you two workshops I’m teaching in the next several weeks! The first one is called Collage Word Pendant and the second one is Art Journaling Basics. Both classes will take place at Sulfur Studios in Savannah. 
These classes focus on taking a more mindful approach to art. If you’ve been around here for a bit, then you’ve probably noticed that I love color and I love words. And combining the two in a mindful way brings me great joy. In these classes, I will walk you through an exercise of focusing on words to use in your art. Then we will work with various mediums to give them a visual representation. The process of creating art like this has been powerful in my life. It has helped me work through various emotions and situations. As well as providing a creative outlet just for the joy of it. 
I hope that you will consider taking one (or both of these) classes. If you come in with an open mind, I know you can grow and discover more about yourself through this process. 

Here are the nitty gritty details. Please don’t hesitate to ask any questions. Also, if you know anyone that would enjoy these classes, please feel free to share this information.
