This is the time of year when we're usually preparing to head to Tulum, Mexico for our annual New Year's Retreat. It's the perfect opportunity to escape the cold, take time to recharge and reflect on the past year (this one's been a doozy), making way for positive steps in the New Year. This year, however, there is no travel--so I am recreating the essence of it online with a four-part series, available to anyone who wants to join in. No passport necessary!
The ONLINE WORKSHOP will include creative writing (journaling), easy watercolor painting, and block printing. The idea is to capture the intention of a Vision Board but in a smaller accordion style artist's book.
I have decided, in order to accommodate various needs, I will offer two options--4 Wednesdays at 1 pm, OR 4 Saturdays at 1 pm. See dates below. When you sign up please indicate which day you prefer and attend on that day for 4 weeks. Feel free to e-mail with any questions as well!
