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!

A blank canvas…the space has been demoed…

Standard

After months of waiting, I went to my future art space yesterday to see how it feels with all of the walls gone…It became very real to see where the new walls will be built by looking at the drawings on the floor. I was able to stand in each of the rooms and finally see how big each studio is going to be. I could also start to visualize how things will be organize in each of the spaces. It was very, very exciting.  Seeing it is so different then imagining it. Ive been looking at blueprints for months, but seeing it in real life brought the picture into focus.

here are some pictures…

The never ending business plan…

Standard

Oh Man … there is a reason creative people aren’t accountants…its absolute torture taking something fabulous and making it one dimensional. So I write what I want to say and then my boyfriend takes it and makes it readable to those who want it summed up in one page. He even wrote in the plan…”boring stuff goes here, Ill do that part”.

So while I’m waiting for the boring part to be written, I’m experimenting with the projects I want to implement with my potential clients. Now that’s where Pinterest comes in…I thought I was creative until I went on there. There are seriously talented people out there reminding me of all Ive missed since being a working stiff for the last 5 1/2 years. Shrinky Dinks, forgot all about them and mixed media art…I’m in heaven. Ill post some pics of what I have done so far.

Getting to be very exciting and scary all at the same time with starting your own business.
