I’m looking for a group of curious people to join me for a trial 3 hour Watercolor Necklace workshop.  This offer is Win-Win.

  • You will create your own unique watercolor necklace that you love while sipping some specially selected wines.

I’m offering this workshop on three different nights in Seattle and one in Costa Rica for a over 50% discount of just $19 each (usually $39). In return,  give me your honest feedback about the process and my teaching so I can refine my approach and materials.

Here are the dates and times. The Seattle location is currently scheduled in Queen Anne.

Course Description
Join a curious group of artists and communicators as we explore our questions about art techniques and their connection to self, society and science . Sessions will be hands on, interactive and explore various themes based on preferences. A guiding principle of the Salon is to provide young artists and thinkers a safe and creative place to explore ideas with each other and create community. Themes and topics will be designed by student input. After a discussion and introduction of themes and/or techniques, students will have studio time to work on projects and share work.

Yoga and Intuitive Art Class

September 23rd, 2016 8:30 – Noon

You don’t have to be an “artist” or “creative” type to join this painting class. All you need is curiosity and a sense of adventure! This class will explore painting as an expression of your intuition and inner voice. In this process, you will explore painting through colors, fluid and imaginative techniques, a variety of tools and most importantly forgiveness and courage of the process and yourself. I love this type of painting for its freedom and the little and profound life lessons it teaches me. I’m looking forward to leading the class and learning from all of you too!
