New Format! Winter is the perfect time to reconnect to your creative process. Join us for this 4-week class and awaken the painter that lives within you.

This introductory class is designed to give you the tools you will need to learn to paint from your heART + SOUL. This is a process oriented class. We don’t paint for outcome. PLEASE NOTE: This is not a “sip and paint” paint class. I think those classes are wonderful, however this work is a deep dive into finding your OWN voice as a creative, by engaging with YOUR SOURCE.

We begin with a meditation and a prompt. We move to the paint, brush and paper. Exploring our inner world as we engage with our unconscious. We complete our circle with a sharing of the story that was revealed. This is now a consecutive series to promote consistency, connection and individual support during the painting experience. Once you have completed the intro class, you are welcome to attend any of the open studio evenings to paint with us in community.

ReConnect to the child within who was fear-LESS. Letting go of the outcome supports expansion of your creative intuition and will dispel your inner critic. No experience is necessary, just the willingness to trust the process…and make a high holy mess!

If you’re reading this, perhaps-like me-you are a person in long-term recovery. Congratulations! Staying sober is no small feat. I tell my clients, “If it was easy, everyone would do it!” If you’re a woman with at least one year of consistent sobriety and you’re feeling like you need an infusion of creative mojo to explore what might be next in your life, this workshop is for you. Join me for a gathering of heARTs and learn how creativity has infused my life with possibilities beyond what I could ever have imagined.

In this workshop, you will create a handmade book of Burning Desires. This book will hold what no longer serves, as well as your deepest dreams for the future. You will leave with a medicine journal that will serve you for the next 12-months, offering you an archive and artifact of your life journey

Wild Soul Medicine Journaling with Sheri Gaynor + 20 other nationally known artists

Visual journaling, art journaling, shadow journaling, mixed-media journaling. Some feel there is a distinction between these approaches, yet the truth is, using books, journals, paper, glue, scissors and color is BIG, WILD, medicine for the Soul and Spirit. Using ritual, guided meditation and some time in nature with my horse, DreamWeaver Sunday, you will explore moving thoughts, feelings and emotions by spilling to the page without concern for the outcome. Wild Soul Medicine Journaling offers you a way to explore feelings and emotions, as you dive into the world of your unconscious wisdom. By letting go of the reins and allowing the writing, color, and imagery to guide you, you will bypass your linear mind, uncovering aspects of self that are often hidden in intellect. Wild Soul Medicine Journaling will deepen your relationship to yourSELF and the beautiful mystery that is your inner world.

For hundreds of years artists have been cutting and pasting magazine and newspaper clippings, photos, handmade papers, and found objects into new and exciting images called collage. In 21 SECRETS Paper, Glue, Scissors we’re keeping the tradition alive with the help of 21 talented, mixed-media teachers whose workshops range from traditional collage principles to more experimental approaches. If you are new to mixed-media or simply looking to give your creative practice a boost, 21 SECRETS Paper, Glue, Scissors is filled with fresh ideas, fun lessons, practical techniques and inspiration galore.
