Hey Creative Souls,
I hope you had a lovely summer! I do enjoy this time of year though, where it’s a little cooler and cozier inside. If you feel this way too, you may be interested in spending time at the Studio with me. My new fall schedule is up, with some favourite workshops returning plus new ones, beginning this weekend!
Also, the Salty Awards is now open to receive your votes. I would be thrilled if you took a few moments to nominate Ocean Art Studio! I checked it out and fall under 2 Business categories: Top Local or Visitor Experience, and Greatest http://www.saltspringchamber.com/business-salty-award
You know what’s really neat? I learned that of everyone who has attended my adult workshops since I opened last summer, 50% have returned, of which 25% have taken 3 or more workshops! I’m beaming with gratitude 💞

Hours: 12-4, Monday – Saturday
At Ocean Art Studio I teach art to youth and adults, encouraging them to set aside their fears and insecurities, to relax, have fun and not take themselves too seriously. Sometimes it just takes getting out of your comfort zone and trying something new to help free up creative blockages. One of the most enjoyable moments teaching is when a student begins to “see” differently for the first time. That’s a great discovery to be a part of, and one that continues to grow beyond the studio into everyday life. I’ve been teaching art since 2006, throughout North and Central America.
