I am not an adventurer by choice but by fate ~ Vincent Van Gogh

Art Classes

I’ll be the first to say that starting to paint is scary. Maybe you’ve been thinking for years to pick up a paint brush. Or maybe you’ve just accepted that you are not creative. Ooohh those stick figures!

But don’t sweat it. I’ve got you! You are born creative just like everybody else. YES you are!

I’ve worked with many students who were apprehensive in the beginning and quickly started to enjoy the benefits of creating from a state of enjoyment.

The world is your canvas


Make it as fun or as serious as you like.

All classes are ON ZOOM and full of learning experiences.

In 6 sessions you will learn how to manage anger, understand inner conflicts, define unrealistic fears and more.

Carl Jung is seen as the poster child of visual journaling. He started his journal The Red Book in 1910 (open to the public in 2013). When he realized words were inadequate to express his feelings he began to paint. 

Images go deeper than words.

After 6 sessions you will understand the value of journaling with images. Your own images!
