I love offering art classes! Below is an updated list of my current classes for adults. All levels of experience are welcome.  Projects are designed to be enjoyable and enlightening for everyone, from beginner to expert.  Please note these are not paint-by-number projects.  Each piece will reflect your unique creativity.  Photos shown are only examples.

TREE WHISPERS: An exploration of collage and intuitive poetry for the non-poet

I never liked poetry in school. It was a foreign language to me. If you told me decades later I would be making poems of my own, I would have laughed!  But, once I threw the rules out the window, it became a comforting and inspiring addition to painting.

In this class, we will use paint, fabric and paper to create an 8×10 collage of a tree and garden.  We will explore intuitive poetry making – a wildly personal experience involving old books and an open mind.  The end result will be a piece full of color, texture and heartfelt sentiments.

Class length: 3 hours

Level of messiness: Roll up your sleeves and take your rings off

WILDFLOWER GARDEN: An introduction to intuitive painting

I deeply believe we are all creative.  It is often outside rules that hold us back.  In this class, we will throw away any pre-conceived notions of what makes a perfect painting. Instead, we will allow our intuition to guide our creative choices on a 16×20 wrapped canvas. The end result will be a unique, colorful wildflower garden steeped in the joyful intentions of the painter.

Class length: 3 hours

Level of messiness: Paint will be flying so do not wear anything precious

FAMILY OF BIRDS: A playful exploration of mixed media collage

In this class, we will use paint, fabric and paper to create an 8×10 collage of a family of birds.  Each piece will be unique, down to the number of birds you chose to place on the canvas.  The end result will be a piece full of color and texture that reflects your personal style.

BUTTERFLY MESSENGER: An exploration of mixed media collage and mantra making

In this class, we will use paint and paper to create a butterfly on an 8×10 canvas.  We will also explore mantra making and allow a guided mediation to inspire our creation of a mantra, which you may inscribe on your butterfly.  The end result will be a piece full of color, texture and meaning.
