Deep-Dive Group Art Classes.

(only 8 spaces)

For the first time in my 21 years as a professional artist, I will be teaching deep-dive group art classes. This is a new experiment for me, based on receiving many requests and inquiries over the years, regarding how my art comes through me.  

While these classes will address technique (specifically, soft pastels) - my primary intent, and my primary passion, is to guide you into a deeper relationship with your unique creative spirit.

Because in my experience, while technique is important, it's channeling your soul's fire that will bring your heart's vision to life. 

What You'll Receive.

THE PROCESS.

I’ll be sharing my entire process with you - from initial visioning and meditations, through early sketches and decision-making, finding flow states (ahhh, yeah), working with resistance, fear, doubt, and self-criticism, letting go of preconceptions to allow for what more deeply wants to happen, and so much more.

This is as much about how to channel your inner vision as it is about anything else - and this involves quieting the mind, opening the heart, and having the courage to engage with what comes forth.

THE TECHNIQUE.

We can often get stuck in taking something we see so clearly, through the eyes of the soul, as it gets translated into brush strokes and color choices. I'll make sure that you deepen your understanding of soft/dry pastels, discovering a more instinctual approach to color (that matches your own innate aesthetic), creating potent compositions that align with your vision and intent, feeling into the energy of what you’re drawing/painting, and culminating with the koan, “How do I know when my art piece is complete?”

THE GROWTH.

And as we dive deeper into these 8 weeks together, I’ll be learning more about each of you, perceiving aspects of yourself that make you uniquely you - your limits, your gifts, your greatest leverage points - and I’ll be sharing it all with you, without holding back (but with skillful means, of course!).

THE INTUITION.

Prior to my art career, I was a successful, corner-office professional psychic (seriously), with a growing and enthusiastic clientele. I was always a little embarrassed to admit I did this, yet to this day it's one of the most satisfying jobs I've ever had (I was really good at it). Nowadays, I use the word "intuition" to describe my process of engaging in advanced internal pattern recognition. I use this process in my artwork, and in my relationships with others - and I implement it abundantly, as a teacher. I'll be using this to point out things I see - in you, in your self-expression, and in your technique.

WHO IT'S FOR. 

This 8-week program will work with seasoned artists looking to deepen their self-expression, and novices who are looking to explore their artistic side for the first time. The size of this class is limited to only 8 souls, so that you will get plenty of one-on-one attention. So that after 8 weeks, you'll be in a completely new relationship with your creative muse and expression.

The Details.

Class size is limited to just 8 students, allowing me to give each of you big doses of attention - and creating an intimate space where we all learn from one another’s unique process.

This first class is designed for adults (18+).

Class times: Mondays, 5pm-7:30pm.

This is an 8 class series:

Q & A.

Are there refunds?

No. If you have a change in your schedule or life, such that it makes it impossible for you to attend classes, you will receive a credit towards future classes, or you may transfer your class spot to a friend or family member before the course begins.

Are payment plans available?

You may pay half up front, and half at the start of the course.

Are scholarships available?

Not at this time.

I want my child to take this class. They are super mature, and would really benefit from this course with you. Will you please make an exception?

Not at this time. Though, YES, they may come to Art Lab on Sundays. Why? In order to honor the adult students in this class series, I have decided that this class is 18+ only. I want there to be complete freedom in the content, questions, and language used during the class. 

(Note: I am in the process of creating a teen class, for ages 13+, let me know if you would like to be on a notification list.)

 

Sign Up Now. Space is Limited to 8.

SOLD OUT.
