A 5-week online creative workshop for the curious beginner.
Welcome to SHINE, a 5-week online workshop that will take you through the creative process + help you tap into your creative radiance. SHINE is an invitation to start your very own creative practice + will serve to remind you that you already have everything you need to begin. We will be focusing our attention + intention on these five areas:
SPACE: carving out a space for you to make a mess in + allow yourself to use your life as a canvas
RESEARCH: deep dive into what makes you tick + researching your past for inspiration
TOOLS: focusing on humble tools + supplies that you most likely already have on hand
ROUTINES + RITUALS: the power of habit + why i think it’s the creative fuel we need to help us tap into our intuition
ACCOUNTABILITY: how to tap into your creative flow + start an accountability project to keep you motivated + in a creative practice you love
This 5-week online creative workshop is right for you if…
you think you’re not an artist or a creative person
you have a loud inner critic
you want to create, but feel like an imposter
you have made time for everyone else in your life and put yourself last
you are ready to SHINE and celebrate your RADIANCE
Join me in creating daily rituals and routines wherein you give yourself permission to start living your life out loud and in full color so that you can fully SHINE!
This 5-week online workshop is jam-packed with shared experiences, suggestions and links to inspire. We will meet weekly on Mondays at 9 am PST (via a group Zoom call) to discuss the weekly theme(s) and you will be given suggestions (aka: homework) for the week’s lesson. A follow-up Q+A will be available on Saturdays at 9 am PST (again, via Zoom). The class will culminate with the completion of a one-of-a-king piece of art, made by you, in the spirit of my 2017 Ray of Light mixed media interview series.
I’m deeply honored to have you take this creative journey with me to help guide you back to finding your own ray of light and preparing yourself to SHINE in you new creative practice.
By RSVP-ing to this online invitation, you will be RSVP-ing to yourself, too.
How It Will Work
The course is based on the most recent Groove 11-day email course that I offered. Based on feedback, the course was too dense to cover in just 11 days, so I’ve pared it down and added weekly group Zoom calls and Q+A calls. You will have access to me twice a week to learn from and ask questions about the content or anything that pops up for you as we work towards our physical end-of-class project.
I will be incorporating a hands-on assignment over the five weeks that we’ll be working together. The assignment will incorporate and riff on a body of work I created in 2017 called the Ray of Light Series, wherein I interviewed 52 women in recovery from alcohol and created a weekly mixed-media work of art to accompany the interview. It was also an accountability project for me and I posted and shared on my blog and through social media every Friday for an entire calendar year. These pieces really resonated with people.
As we embark on this journey, you might come up with other ideas on how to expand on this creative assignment. I welcome all of your ideas and would be happy to consult with you on the best way to go about achieving your project goal(s). I’m here to facilitate and collaborate and inspire.
For a long time, I dimmed my light, but not anymore. I hope you’ll join me and allow me to give you permission to start your own creative rituals and routines. SHINE is a rallying cry for you to dig deep and explore what lights you up. Your chosen image will be your guide into metaphorically telling the story of who you think you are.
I can’t wait to meet you.
A supply list will be sent to you once you are registered for the course.
