Alright step right up and sign up for our classes!

Standard

After months of work and organization, I think we are ready to sign people up for classes!

I feel like screaming it from the roof top! We finally have our website organized and a potential opening date of March 11th. SO I think we open registration and see what happens. Its been a very interesting and often intense roller coaster waiting to see what will happen. Ive had those nightmares where I go to the centre and no one is there or I go to the centre and its completely over run with people and I cant get in the door. I guess only time will tell. Ive arranged for some amazing people to teach at the centre in yoga, dance, movement, visual arts and music therapy. I have developed a wide range of class offerings and have a willingness to create what ever the community is looking for. I have made some incredible community partners that will make a class at the Mandala Art Centre worth while. I want to thank everyone who has helped me through this journey. Everyone’s support has meant so much and I hope to not disappoint.

Here are some pics of the current studio spaces. We are waiting on flooring and touch ups and hope to be moving in the first week of March!

If I only had one obsession…

Standard

I have come to realize over the last few months, that when inspiration hits, I will drop everything else to try my new obsession. I completely submerge myself into the medium and cant imagine how it lived without it or what I did before it. Recent obsessions include Zentangling, Mandalas and Art Journaling. There is a never ending list of projects and ideas mostly introduced to me by Pinterest and some amazing art blogs. So every day I am inspired to try something else. Here are some photos of recent works.

I was inspired by a beautiful stamp made by 100 Proof Press. They have beautiful stuff and deliver to Canada! http://www.100proofpress.com/

My little flower, honestly cant remember who I was inspired by but I believe it was either Willowing or Suzi Blu, another fantastic mixed media artist. http://suziblu.typepad.com/

Im so grateful to have the chance to see what others are doing and to be completely inspired and rejuvenated by them. I am also so thankful that they are willing to share with the world. The Arts community is an amazing group of people and I am proud to be a part of it finally.

I hope I have inspired you to look at these amazing blogs and to get out your art supplies and get creating!
