In this class, you will design your own mandala; you will have the freedom to choose whatever shapes and colors speak to you to express your sense of self, your reality. Your mandala is YOURS, no one else’s. You have the freedom to use your creativity to draw a mandala that is uniquely you.
Once you have learned the basic steps to construct a mandala, you can try all kinds of designs, patterns, colors each time you draw a new mandala.
The instructor will provide some design helps to get you started as well as have some examples for you to look at. All materials included in class fee.
Word of the Year Exercise and Art Journal set-up for 2020
In the first class of the year, you will be provided a blank 3-ring binder to act as your journal for 2020, or you may bring your own. In class, we will create monthly pages that are designed to be a place for self-discovery, reflection, growth, and creativity. It is a time to explore art techniques, connect with others and yourself.
Once you have registered, Lisa will email you the Word of the Year Worksheet so you have time to think about your word of the year ahead of time if you choose.
All supplies are provided in the class fee.

Creating a vision board as a couple can be a fun activity for a couple to share. Dean and I are excited to share with you one of the ways we connect through art. Dean is a self-professed non-artist, but since we’ve been together, he has shown he has much latent creativity that wants to be expressed. Have fun letting your inner artist come out to play and connect with your partner on a deeper level. We’ll share how we created our vision board and help you along the way to make something meaningful to bring home and inspire you!
Here are some reasons why creating a couple’s vision board is a good idea.
● It serves as a reminder of what you want your life to look like
● It helps bring dreams into focus and turn them into goals
● It helps you define goals and set milestones for accomplishing them
● It helps clarify where you will invest your time, money and energy
● It fosters communication on what is important to each person and leads to open, honest discussions
● It has the potential to bring a couple closer together and strengthen a relationship
During our Vision Board Night, you will be provided with all the tools to create a vision board you can take home, frame and keep in a place that reminds you of your fun together and the memories you have chosen to create in the year ahead. Please bring some personal photos if you wish to incorporate those into your board. Suggestions would be photos of you as couples, family photos, (an ultrasound photo???) or places you’d like to travel, including other things that have meaning in the upcoming months of 2020! Let’s have some fun!
Come be part of the new, exciting movement to share joy and encouragement by making an inspirational art tag you can keep and another to share! Classes provide a time for self-discovery using mindfulness exercises and an exploration of a wide variety of art techniques. The “INSPIRATION TAG” is a way to connect with yourself and others through art-making; and, is a mini-canvas for you to express your inner-artist.
