One guarantee in our lives is that change is inevitable! In early February 2018, my husband and I moved to a small house on a small island with a small population! But now I have a small private studio where I can teach one or two students at a time.

Artists Deep Dive - September 1-30 - Online Only
As an artist, you are the seeker of creativity, you know that your art practise adds passion, excitement, wonderment and yes, sometimes frustration and discouragement to your life.
In a world that makes so many demands on our daily lives, it can be challenging to carve out those blocks of time to make the art that makes us whole.
Have you considered a dedicated and focused time that would provide an opportunity to discover innovative and fresh new pathways into your art? Perhaps there’s an idea that keeps calling to you or a variation of your current work that you are wanting to explore? Maybe its something that’s so different and “not you” that you’re shying away?
Art residencies can be a big leap and maybe you are not quite ready to apply for a residency away from home, but you want to have some of that experience. Or you are looking for a push forward into your art - then - the Artists Deep Dive may be for you.
Email to be put on the wait list - demand for this workshop is very high! email@example.com
