Learn the Beautiful and Mysterious Art of Mandalas
Do you like mandala coloring books? Do you find them fun, relaxing, and therapeutic to color? Now, imagine creating a mandala design of your very own. A timeless design that holds personal meaning and represents YOU: your personality, dreams, and aspirations.

Whether you see yourself as an artist, or always wanted to be one, under our expert and patient guidance in a creative, supportive, non-judgmental environment, ANYONE can create a beautiful mandala. In fact, each mandala is like a signature. All you need is a little curiosity, a playful attitude, and an open heart.

Go from a blank canvas to creating your own intricately designed mandala. You'll be amazed by the creative energy and the quiet stillness designing and coloring your very own mandala will bring you. It’s a beautiful form of meditation that can provide precious insights about your true nature and centers you in the present moment. It’s transformative and facilitates
personal growth, healing, and joy.

CREATIVE BREW NIGHT

Get inspired, make art, and celebrate creativity in good company!
Are you an artist, designer, or illustrator who has found yourself in a “creative pause?” Is your life so busy that you can’t find the time to be creative? Or has it been years since you made art that you lack the courage to begin again? Perhaps it’s all of these and more.

As creative types, we know how important it is to take time out for ourselves to be creative and make art. Making art inspires and fires us up. It allows us to bring our inner child out to play, and in doing so, expands our perspective to see new and exciting things in the unexpected. But making art can also be a lonely process. 

We’re looking to gather together a small group of creative people who are interested in joining us for a Creative Brew Night. Each gathering is an opportunity to connect with like-minded people, explore different artists’ mediums and processes, collaborate, and share stories of creative challenges, successes, doubts, fears, and the joys of making art.

CREATIVE BREW WALK

Find inspiration, reconnect with nature, and get your "buzz" back!
We all go through transitions in our lives. Each experience gives us an opportunity to face our fears, get to know ourselves better, find the courage to make changes in our lives, and connect more deeply with others. But all too often during these transitions, we get overwhelmed with life’s challenges and responsibilities, and we lack the focus, creativity, and energy to move forward. 

When life gets busy and distracting, I find it takes extra focus and discipline to tune it all out and free up my mind to be creative. One of the most efficient ways I find inspiration for my art and design work (a.k.a. get my buzz back) is to spend time in nature — the energy of the trees, the sound of the wind, and the movement of water awakens my creative spirit. It was during one such nature walk that I came up with the idea of our Creative Brew Walk and Journal, a fun breakthrough thinking and creative journaling session that will help you: 

Reconnect with nature
Free your mind and unlock your imagination
Find inspiration and develop ideas
Close the gap between thought and action
Harness the power of creativity to realize the many opportunities in your life

30-DAY CREATIVE BREW CHALLENGE

Reconnect with your creativity!
If joining us on one of our Creative Brew Walks is not possible due to geographic distance, perhaps taking part in our 30-Day Creative Brew Challenge will spark your imagination, help you find your inner muse, and inspire you to follow your passion. 

I was inspired to create this 30-Day Creative Brew Challenge because of my struggle over the past few years to be creative for myself and work on my art. As the Creative Director of Elan + LeafLet Publishing for the past 18 years, I've been sharing all my creative energy and strategic ideas with my clients and their organizations (which, by the way, I LOVE doing). But somewhere along the way I got depleted. This can happen when you turn your passion into a business. 

In an effort to give myself the time and space to work on my own art, flex my creative mind, and find some inspiration, this 30-Day Creative Brew Challenge was born. But this creative challenge is like no other you may have seen. We don’t tell you what to create. That’s up to you. What we will do is help you dig deep and tap into the emotions that surface when us creative types struggle to be creative. 

Are you up for the challenge?
