Congrats, Lauren!

THANKS TO EVERYONE for sharing the love with us and entering. Don’t forget to sign up for the free online Creative Retreat weekend lessons or join us for the whole yearlong mixed-media program at the early bird price!

Happy creating to all of you!


Nothing like having the chance at a bunch of free art lessons to inspire and nourish your art-making and Creative Practice for a whole year, don’t ya think? Yes, please.

You may have already signed up to receive the FREE online Creative Retreat weekend with 27 art lessons from 27 worldwide teachers coming up. It’s July 6-7 - just a couple weeks away, and you get 24 hours to enjoy each lesson - perfect for a little art staycation-style retreat right from the comfort of your home.

But did you realize that there is also an optional yearlong ongoing creative journey - Make Create Express - with 27+ more lessons (and extended access to the free lessons, of course)?

Well, you have a chance to win a spot for the year-long creative journey - by entering the giveaway and helping us share the word about the program, in the hopes that we may reach others who would love this free retreat opportunity or the ongoing workshop.

We are giving away 15 spots total - and I’ve got one of them.

I’ll draw my winner at the end of the day June 28 & announce my winner right here on this post over the weekend after confirming with them.

And don't forget to join us for the Free Online Creative Retreat Weekend Event

In one hour together in LandShapes (which includes 4 guided Creative Practices from me during the free retreat weekend) we will be inspired by shapes, color, line and contemplations of the beauty of landscapes. You will practice seeing and loose skill expression through multiple approaches for making space come to life on the page with our basic materials. This will totally amp-up your mixed-media composition enthusiasm, awareness and skills for all of your art journaling and painting creations.

My second lesson, in the ongoing retreat, is DreamScapes, where we create a painted world (or art journal spread) from start to finish, incorporating ideas we explored in LandShapes with an intuitive and process-oriented journey that will lead us somewhere we can’t predict. These are my absolute favorite types of paintings to explore.


A blog-hop means many chances to win…yay!
