    The Program

    We have carefully crafted six classes designed to get you in touch with who you really are, what is you really want and why it matters. By blending Katy’s coaching expertise with Christina’s incredible art talents, we’ve created a journey that will produce your masterpiece!


    Here’s what this amazing program looks like:


    Week One: My Life

    What does your life look like now? What’s working? What’s not? By using the circle of life and Japanese notans you’ll have an opportunity to perceive and evaluate how areas of your life are going. Discover and find the balance between dark and light.

    Week Two: Who am I?

    In this powerful session, explore who you really are from the inside-out. Your relationship with yourself is a deeply personal and hard-to-capture reality. Using intuitive art, you’ll have the chance to play with colours, shapes and collage to allow freedom of inner expression. Allow each layer to inform what comes next. In this class, much of your work will be done without too much prompting and a lot more reflection. You can thank us later.


    Week Three: Digging Deeper

    Using a technique called Painted Faces, this class will teach you to dig deeper into who you are. What is your muse telling you? While last week was about exploring from a place of unknowing, this class is about tapping into the things that are much deeper, such as your core values, passions, needs, limitations and desires.


    Week Four: Challenges

    What gets in your way? Is it yourself? Lack of money or time? Not enough boundaries? Using Line and Zentangle art, we’ll use a fun medium to unlock what it is that stands between you and what it is you want. Identify the patterns holding you back. Allow your creative side to free you from the boxed in limitations you’ve settled for until now.


    Week Five: A Better Me

    What does it mean for you truly own your life? How can you incorporate more self-love/care/compassion/respect? By using India Ink, we’re going to explore what it means to be more self-aware and how we can carve out a better life all around.


    Week Six: My Best Life

    What are my dreams? Desires? What is it that I really WANT? And WHY? Using word art, this class is designed to open your heart up so you can really listen and hear what’s being said. By writing beautiful art-filled messages, you can give your heart the opportunity to build your roadmap. Imagine the delight…how often do we truly stop to listen? Get your creative on and find out what you’ve known deep deep down all along…

    with Sharron MacBride!

    Discover how to create wood textures and realistic windows in this fantastic watercolour workshop!

    Recommended paints:  French Ultramarine Blue, Cobalt Blue, Hansa Yellow Light or Lemon Yellow, New Gamboge, Alizarin Crimson, Permanent Rose, Burnt Sienna, Sap Green.  We may not use all colours listed but it's nice to have these on hand in case you need to mix a variation.

    Brushes:  #6 round, #10 round.  Must be watercolour brushes as they hold and distribute the right amount of water and pigment.  Feel free to bring other brushes such as a flat brush etc.

    Please bring student grade brands or better. Ie. Winsor Newton, Cotman or best Daniel Smith, Sennelier.  Dollar store, artist loft may not give you the desired effect and are harder to work with but if you want to bring what you have to try it out that's OK.

    Watercolour paper is included.
