What you'll learn in this mixed media class:

Self-care activities are things we do to take care of our mental, emotional and physical health which in turn increases our empathy and immunologic functioning and lowers anxiety and depression. When we create a balance between self-care and care for others, we become better equipped to meet our and other’s needs. Expressing kindness and caring for ourselves helps us to be kinder to others and it also helps us cope with difficult emotional experiences. Self-care activities can be emotional, physical, spiritual, and social. Focus on what feels good to you, things you genuinely enjoy doing and that fit with your lifestyle and values.

Vision Board

A vision board is a visual representation of a particular concept using images, illustrations and/or words. The goal of a vision board is to increase awareness of the particular concept or theme assigned to the board in a creatively stimulating way. Some possible concepts are self-care, self-compassion, goals in subjects such as love, money, career etc. Building a self-care vision board is a playful and intuitive search for potential self-care activities that when completed, can serve as a source of inspiration, visual reminder and motivator. Therefore, it will serve you to make a habit out of viewing your board often.

When creating your vision board, it is important to enjoy the process and work intuitively. Go with the flow, more feeling less thinking and debating. Select images or text that feel good and resonate with you without overthinking it. Prioritizing can come after its creation.

Materials needed to participate fully:

  • Scissors
  • Glue (I prefer Elmer’s clear glue sticks)
  • Magazines, books, cards, drawings, text (drawn or found)
  • Something to put the images etc. on, examples are cardboard, cardstock, wood panel, canvas can be difficult to get the paper to stick to unless you use mod podge or a layer of paint first.
  • You can add anything that you enjoy and feel inspired by! Glitter, ribbon, concert tickets, photos…

About the Instructor:

I have been teaching art as well as crafts at a private art school for 6+ years and have been a professional artist since 2001. I have also earned my master teaching credentials from the state of CA. My style is intuitive and free flowing which leaves room for individual student creativity and flexibility. My classes are a fun way to learn new skills and develop the independent intuition needed to keep the creative process alive for years to come. 

Virtual Class FAQ

What will be included in my Virtual Class package?

One ticket includes an access link to your live, online class. The class will be delivered via web conferencing software and feature a live, professional instructor who will walk you through a lesson as described above. You will have the opportunity to ask questions as well as participate from home.

How many people is my purchase good for?

Each ticket is good for one "device" (i.e. one computer, phone, tablet, etc. you'll be logging in from). This ensures we don't get more people in the class than the instructor can handle. Though we understand some people live together and will be working/learning together, the intent is that each class still allows for the same attention to attendees as if students purchased separately. Please be respectful of this!

Will I need anything from home to use in the class?

You will need a reliable Internet connection as well as a computer or device with which you can access your virtual class. We recommend you arrive to class 5-10 minutes early to ensure you're able to set up your device and connection. Additionally, if the class is more than just a lecture you will likely want any materials listed in the course description as "Materials Needed to Participate Fully", though you're welcome to purchase a seat and sit in and just watch.

Am I able to ask questions or interact with the class?

Yes, you'll both be able to ask questions using the chat function in the video hosting software as well as at certain intervals during the class via voice/audio. If the class winds up being on the smaller side, more spontaneous interaction/questions will be encouraged.

Do I have to show my video or speak during class?

While we recommend you do show your video and speak when encouraged to by the instructor, video and audio participation are never mandatory. We find classes have more fun experiences when people are engaging with one another, but understand not everyone will want to do so and that's ok!
