I've been on an online hiatus for the holidays and I'm now just getting back to "real life". As you might know, our family celebrated in central America this year, and it was a great trip. We spent a few weeks in rainforests of Belize and Guatamala tramping high atop and ancient Mayan ruins, communing with howler monkeys,—and we had some lovely ocean time, too. Best of all, though, my husband and I got to spend good time with our 20-something kids, which is premium time these days. All in all, it was "unBelizeable!"
I hope you had a wonderful holiday season—and I hope you're as excited as I am for all the creative possibilities of the new year.
As you might know, I put out a monthly E-Newsletter on the studio website, We Are All Createful. Normally, I blog over here about all things creative and leave that newsletter for studio news. but this month I just have to share all the news in that e-newsletter with you here too.
Don't miss the full E-Newletter with full details, but here are the highlights:
1) We are getting a very special opportunity at the end of this month. Please join us!
CREATIVITY UNLOCKED, a Webinar with Creativity Coach, Fiona Moore
Scheduled for Monday, January 29th, 7-8:30pm, this webinar is like an online conference call via computer. We’ll be able to share our screens so it’ll be like being in the studio—only we'll all be at home!
We'll talk about things like where the creative impulse comes from, why you don’t need to worry about being creative or not, and how to unblock feeling stuck—and much more.
The fee is just $30 and registration takes place on our meetup site. More information there and in the E-Newsletter.
2) We continue to add more Art Fix classes to the weekly schedule.
You can now drop in for a class on Tuesday night, Thursday afternoon, Thursday evening as well as TWO Saturday afternoons each month.
And don't forget, if you haven't made it to the studio yet, you get your FIRST TWO ART FIX CLASSES for the PRICE OF ONE!
Find full details about each class and register on our meetup site.
3) We are all sharing our artwork on Instagram on one Hashtag : #createfulartfix
Come join us! Add photos of your artwork and see what others are creating either at the studio or inspired to create on their own.
If you're new to Instagram, as I explain in the E-News, it's super easy to get started and to participate—and I will show you how. Come 20 minutes early to class this week or next for free "Instagram clinics". Just download the Instagram app from the App store before you arrive and I will help you start an account and quickly understand the FIVE menu items.
4) All Call for Artwork!
It's time to re-deck the studio walls with new art from the Createful Community. I'm asking EVERYONE to bring in one-two pieces of artwork for display. Please bring it in starting this week...(PRETTY PLEASE?)
Again, lots more details in the E-Newsletter, which you can find here. You can also subscribe to that monthly E-Newsletter to receive future missives in your email inbox. See the sidebar to subscribe.
Okay, so regularly scheduled programming will continue soon on the blog—stay tuned—and in the meantime, come on down to the studio, sign up for the webinar, connect on Instagram (and Pinterest and Facebook)...let's get Createful!
Until next time--
