A 3 week course dedicated to unleashing our creative spirit, letting go of expectation and truly enjoying the process.
This course was created for those who have difficulty believing in themselves and trusting the journey of creating.
We will be creating an animal spirit who holds personal significance to each of us an individuals. Who represents values and lessons we embrace to evolve on our own.

During the creative process, students will be learning a variety of mixed media techniques, oil pastel resist, textured stencils, stamping, imprinting, scrafitto, and more as we create unique papers to use as collage elements.

Starting our second class, we will look at the papers we have made and begin to attach them to our canvas, building up our backdrop.

By our third class, students will have a solid foundation of their chosen animal spirit on the canvas, and we will begin to embellish our creature and add finishing details.

By the end of this course, students will have a symbolic piece of art they have created and be able to apply their new knowledge to future pieces.

Week 1 Mixed media, mark making and planning

Week 2 Application of collage elements

Week 3 Painting and finishing touches

The 3 week Animal Spirits course will take place in my personal studio, which I share with a local designer in Peterborough, Ontario.
On the stairway leading up to the STUDIO, you will witness a beautiful wood cut design on the wall. This abstract piece is what captured my heart when I first came too look at this space. With its charming wooden floors and many windows, this cozy space is full of creativity which I can’t wait to share with you.
In addition, the studio offers..

  • Air conditioning and heating
  • Comfortable seating for 8
  • Two working sinks, with our paint sink being in the kitchenette area.
  • Water and a variety of herbal teas for your enjoyment
  • Parking on street in front of building


The studio is located at 302 Park St N.
Situated between Charlotte St and King St. The building is the Kevin Dunn accounting building, main entrance in front with the door on the left and just up the stairs.

Parking is available on the street (or if full in the lot next door. The dentist/chiropractor building).
