It seems as though the economy and time constraints have caused all of us to hunker down and rethink things - speaking for myself this is true. Online classes keep coming in my path and while they are not the same as going and being present they are a wonderful alternative. I had been encouraging my dear friend LK to do one for some time now and lucky for me and many others she has. Be sure to check her out.
That being said I have been asked by many of you if I would consider an online class in lieu of a physical one. My first step would be to see how much interest I would have? So I am putting out the proposition....

ANIMAL SPIRIT GUIDES
Many Native people believe that animals present themselves to us in the form of guides and teachers. In this class we will journal about why certain animals are prominent in our lives, what we can learn from them and how we can express ourselves through our art using them as guides. The techniques we will explore will include using b/w photographic images along with paint, pen, pencil, color and poetry.
“You have heard the beat of the off-shore wind, And the thresh of the deep-sea rain; You have heard the song - how long?" Kipling
La Mare will be our muse in creating a unique book filled with poetry, photographs, drawings, paintings, and more. We will walk the shores for inspiration and to capture images of deep beauty. This class will focus on the Sea and all the wisdom she has to offer.
