WORKSHOPS & CLASSES
This is an opportunity to take a deep dive into a hands-on, imaginative world of making things. Creativity and art process offer a window into new ways of seeing ourselves. They invite us to experiment and discover our unique expression, immersing us in vibrant color, texture, and imagery of our own design. Mistakes are impossible as we learn to build up surfaces and use the history of our marks to create rich layered pieces in a playful, non-judgmental setting. Art principles are introduced along with a variety of mixed media techniques including acrylic paint, gels, mediums, image transfer, sanding, texture tools, rubber stamps, and collage. No previous art experience is necessary. Classes and workshops are open to complete beginners and continuing artists of all levels.
"If you want a day, a moment in time to escape the hectic-ness of everyday life and drop deeply into your heart, your instincts, your authentic core and play til your heart's content, then SOULIO is your class."

What deeper story is emerging within you, wanting to find expression? SoulCollage® is a creative, intuitive collage process, a powerful way to embark on this soulful exploration. Through creative inquiry and collage we will journey into the heart of our gifts, passions and purpose to discover what truly brings us alive. We will create cards by gathering images that speak to us. Some we select recognizing immediately how they relate to our lives, while others we have no idea why we chose them- or why they seemed to choose us. Filled with deep personal meaning, our cards offer a visual narrative of our own unique life story. In a supportive, playful and collaborative environment, we’ll step deeper into our cards to see how they relate to our inner and outer worlds. This non-residential workshop will begin the evening of Friday, Mar 6, and go for two full days, Saturday and Sunday, Mar.7-8. Open to all, no art experience is necessary.
Enrollment is limited! Fee is $497 general and
