The goal of this course is really to emphasize the value of women to each other, the value of love and support, and the value of sisterhood.

TAOS is for anyone that is looking to unite with other women, feel more connected, and dig deeper into the creative journey. TAOS will be a safe place for you to share your own personal stories as they relate to those that are shared with you.  TAOS is a place where we hold space for each other, as it is needed, and when it is needed.  TAOS is for YOU!

Happy Mug & Art Supply Giveaway

Hello creative friends!

How’s your week been? We are in the big thaw out after waaayyy too much snow in Portland. What a mess. So, I’ve been cozy inside having far too much coffee in my brand new mug BUT look how cute it is!

Look, don’t ask me why but fun mugs make me happy! THIS mug makes me VERY happy! It also completely describes my life! When I fill it up to the brim with yummy coffee and head on up to the studio, it makes me smile. Now, that, my friends is a good way to start your morning, right?

So as you know, when I LOVE something – I like to spread the word! What better way than to do a GIVEAWAY of three of these mugs to fellow creative friends! To kick it up a notch, I’m throwing in a $20 Blick Art gift cards too! We all know you can’t have too many art supplies. ;)

A NEW way to create

Hello creative friends!

It’s a snowy day here and I’m just getting ready to start painting but before I do, I wanted to drop in and say hello and share some art with you.

The students in Between Shadow & Light are making some amazing discoveries and creating such beautiful, soulful portraits! I’m completely thrilled to hear they are learning that their non-dominant hand has much to offer and can open up a NEW way to engage in their creativity.

Here is just a snippet of the beauty coming out of the classroom from these incredible artists…

Artists from top left: Maryse Perdriat, Helle Kristensen, Melanie Rivers, Lynda Fortin King, Karen Johnson, Toni Burt, Lynn Colwell, Christy Harris, Robin Laws, Janet Reid, Karen Stallard Nowviskie

Due to this class’ immense popularity, I’ve removed the class size limit. So come on in and join over 250 students from all over the world. Start creating in a BRAND NEW WAY! If you have been looking for a class to spark your creativity, open your heart and get you out of your rut this is the one…

Here are some of what the students have been saying…

“Tried a sketch using only my non-dominant hand. So much difference … especially with my inner critic! It’s like I don’t expect much from my left hand, so I don’t criticize as much? I am definitely going to use my left hand more.” – Tracy

“I haven’t felt this free and relaxed in a long time while painting. Just let myself go!” – Lynda

“I’m really finding my comfort zone and OCD is put off side without my normal face mapping and creating of facial planes when drawing with my non dominant hand BUT my emotional state centered around the ART is more peaceful and happy.” – Christy

 

 See you in class.
