Find your Artistic Voice - is a VISUAL art class
Weds. nights - Starting July 24, 2024
correct starting date is July 31, 2024
It runs for 4 weeks; 6:45 - 9:00 PM

This on-going class offers tools & techniques to help you find a clear path to your creative source. Warm-ups and exercises are designed to by-pass your inner critic, encourage artistic exploration, and increase confidence in your authentic self-expression… If you are at the beginning of your art-making journey, or need guidance in taking the next big leap, this class is for you.

This class is great for: 
  •  empty-nesters & retirees with time to invest in themselves, in a nurturing way … 
  • Those returning to art-making after a lengthy detour / absence.
  • as well as high-schoolers wanting to prepare a dynamic portfolio for art school … and for:
  • young people growing their own style, or art-making ‘vocabulary’ 
The focus is on developing your authentic artistic “voice” / language… It's really a guided journey of self-discovery. 
Drawing, painting, and other artistic skill-building will be offered on an as-needed basis, however. 

There will be a Materials fee of $4
You may also bring your own materials / supplies for exploration, or for working on your own projects.

...depends on the number of students. Most likely, it will be around $145. for the 4 week class. Please e-mail me for updated info:

Here are some early reviews from back in 2014 (!!)
“Stacye has a gift. She was able to listen to my scattered goals and confused internal dialogue, & helped me to narrow down my focus. I have a much clearer path that I'm traveling now ...” - Sandra E. Oct. 2014

Stacye is a caring, sensitive, teacher/art-coach with exquisite sensitivity to the needs of each student. She is a skilled artist, but most significantly, she knows how to nurture and support each student's unique growth in the ways that work for that student. Would highly recommend her without any reservations.” - Rose H. Oct. 24, 2014 

Here are some reviews from just before the pandemic hit and lock-down stopped class dead in its tracks: 
“I’ve been taking Stacye’s class every time it has been offered since September 2014.  I continue to take it because Stacye creates an encouraging, non-judgmental atmosphere where I can create art and grow!  It’s a rare opportunity.”
Rose H.; Feb. 20, 2020

"For me, FYAV …is a voyage of exploration, discovery and finding my own unique way of artistic expression.  Stacye is a magical teacher and the other students create an energy that is both exciting and productive."
Maja K.; Feb. 21, 2020
