Workshops and Classes

Arts Workshops:

Absolutely no previous artistic skills are necessary in any of my workshops, as these workshops are not typical art classes to only learn artistic techniques and skills. For people who felt they left their creativity somewhere between childhood and adulthood and have a yearning to find it again, these are for you! For those with a background in Visual Arts, these Arts and Creativity Workshops provide the perfect opportunity to let go of technique and perfection and allow your intuitive voice to gently guide you on how to quiet the noise and listen from within.

I am based and teach out of a studio in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, but do travel. Workshops are perfect for Mind, Body and Soul Retreats, community groups, private home gatherings as well as for people in any helping field wanting to teach others Meditative Arts and for progressive corporations who would like to foster an emotionally healthy workplace with a hands-on creative and stress free Workplace Wellness initiatives.

Small Group and Private Lessons are also available daytime or evenings. Please contact me for more information.
