Let's have a Retreat! - At home - In our jammies!

In these times of stay-at-home orders and keeping each other safe, we can travel from far and wide to be together - apart! Cherryl Moote and I have teamed up to bring you an exciting creative retreat over two weekends! 

  • Learn innovative gel plate printing techniques with Elaine. 
  • Create both a sample and finshed book as Cherryl guides you through the Larkshead sewn binding. 
  • Get your pattern on with ZentangleŽ!*
  • Expand your creative options as Cherryl and Elaine share with you their collage, paper altering, art journaling and mixed media expertise.
  • Art Supplies and goodies valued at $100+*
  • Carefully designed classes guide the beginner and provide challenges to the advanced student. 
  • Relaxed schedule, allowing you time to process and create with your newly acquired skills.
  • 18 hours of instruction in a Zoom classroom. All classes are recorded.
  • Create-Along time - sign onto our Zoom classroom and create with friends! (not recorded)
  • Private Facebook Group
  • $350 United States students, $365 Canadian Students, $250 International Students. (US Dollars)**

Before the event you will receive a specially curated box of art supplies and fun surprises valued at $100+! You'll also be asked to gather together some household items and supplies you probably already have on hand. Be sure to join the Facebook group and get to know each other! And, set aside a small space for creativity and alert your co-habitants that your art time is sacred! 

* Attendees should have a working knowledge of the Zentangle Method.
