CREATIVE LIFE ENRICHMENT PROGRAM

What is your relationship to your own creativity? Are you nurturing that inner creative voice, or is it sitting somewhere on a back burner, minimized or even forgotten?
In your busy life, it can be a challenge to prioritize your creativity. Your creativity is your birth-right, something you were born with, something we all have. When you nurture it, your life is richer, fuller, and more balanced.  Click here for a full description.
Choose between a variety of options such as Touch Drawing, Bookmaking, Art as a Healing Practice, Mandala Club, Adult Art Camp, Painting Your Creative Edge, Dive-in weekend intensive, and more. Check our upcoming workshops here, and sign up for our e-news here.
No prior art experience is necessary.

COMMUNITY/COLLABORATIVE ART MAKING

A collaborative art project is a wonderful addition to your event! We design projects appropriate to your setting and clientele. Conferences, festivals, waiting rooms, educational programs, and even parties are great settings for community art projects, and the finished piece can be hung in a place of honor and posted on your website. Some examples are collaborative mandalas, quilts, mosaics, and Flower of Life.

CREATING HEALING ENVIRONMENTS

We specialize in transforming your space into one of healing and wellbeing. We will work with you, your staff, students, or residents, to design and collaboratively create a healing and restorative space. Let us show you our portfolio and discuss options, ideas and fees.  The possibilities range from a commissioned art work with a healing message, to a complete transformation of an environment.

COMMUNITY EXHIBITS

Periodically we host a community art exhibit, including Touch Drawing and Mandala exhibits.
