I was delighted when Jules Ostara from Thrivetrue.com invited me to be a guest contributor in her new experiential self-paced course, Art as an Altar: Celebrating Life through Creativity. I was happy to contribute some thoughts on creating relationship with the heart/hearth of your home.
I already loved Jules' book The Girl Who Dances with Delight and looked forward to this new offering, where you will:
"Give attention and tender loving care to your life through the mixed media art process. Create an altar on a canvas as an offering and sacred celebration for your home. All levels welcome from beginners to anyone who wishes to explore the rich potential of approaching art this way.
Gather beauty and blessings for the altar with collage material from various sources. Tap in to the power of intention, imagination, and symbolism to co-create your story. Honor any animal spirit guides or plant essence that appeals to you. Bring your best memories and sweetest dreams to mingle with the gifts of now as you combine gratitude and hope with the magic of your own loving touch."
And how perfect is it that this course begins at Bealtaine, a time of awakening and flourishing?
More about this course from Jules and the ThriveTrue website:
Techniques will include layering collage, using fluid acrylic paints, shimmering pearlescent inks, stencils and patterns, veiling, glowing, and glazing, ways to consider and include symbolic imagery, finding or selecting secret messages, color coordination and cohesive composition, harmonizing and being mindful of the energy put into it.
You will have access to ALL of the lessons at once. So, you can follow along with the suggested schedule spanning 4 weeks (1 month/moon cycle) or create at your own pace. The suggested schedule works out to about an hour per week for several short videos (give or take a little). That makes it easy to fit in and allows plenty of time to actually create. You can download all content to keep for offline and lifetime access if you choose.
You will receive:
- In-depth video instructions for one mixed media art project with several layers (over 20 videos condensed into about 4 hours)
- Supply list (substitutions and experimentation encouraged)
- Intimate behind the scenes and beyond the obvious insights from and about the creative process. This includes emotional, mental, and spiritual aspects in addition to the physical
- Support for any questions via email
- Option to share and participate in monthly live zoom sessions
- Additional text, references, and prompts to encourage you through the process
- Audio for a Guided Visualization Journey
- Bonus ideas & inspiration from Special Guests
- A cheerleader for your creative potential
