Virtual Workshop: Valentine’s Papercutting – February 11, 2023, 10am to 12pm PT

Come join me over at Creative Fuel Collective for a fun papercutting class devoted to make some Valentine’s-themed art.

PAUSE: A winter creative retreat for rest + recalibration, February 23-27, 2023

For nature, winter is a season of dormancy and hibernation. It’s a time of recharging, refueling. We’re taking this seasonal opportunity to do the same for our creative practice, and dig into the restful and restorative elements of the creative process. Hosted in collaboration with Freeflow Institute, this is a retreat for recommitting to your practice, and reigniting that spark that can so often dwindle. It is for exploring how creativity is essential in our everyday lives and why it helps us thrive.  Tickets + more info.

Adventure Art Field Course // San Juan Islands Edition, May 11-14, 2023 // Olympic Peninsula Edition, July 6-9, 2023

My annual creativity workshops with Swift Adventure Co. Consider this a creativity retreat on two wheels, complete with lots of drawing and painting, and time for exploring. There are two versions of this retreat—the programming is the same but the locations are different, both of them beautiful and complete with saltwater swims.
