"Believe" by Artist Dawn Marie (2010 Copyright)

Creating art isn't something that should be intimidating or scary....it's about trying new things and seeing what might happen. Making art is healing. It gives us an outlet to express our fears, our joys, our hurts, our love- regardless of whether we intent it or not. The meditative practice of making art allows our hearts to expand, think, even forgive.

In this workshop you will learn to open your mind and experiment with different types of objects & techniques to create works of art.
