Be Brave and Imagine.....
Imagine...is 8 weeks of being creatively, authentically you!
If you can imagine, you can believe! You will be inspired by the power of your Artist's Soul and your Creative Spirit. Often the fear of not knowing what to do or the fear of doing something wrong stops us from perusing our creative desires. Do you imagine creating art that is free-flowing, do you have a sense of remorse for the loss of creativity in your life, do you feel overwhelmed by the feelings of I'm not good enough, I can't do that, comparisons and self judgement.
Imagine there are no mistakes in the creative process, open up yourself to the possibilities of a much larger world of self expression. Change your thoughts, change your life, be brave. Imagine making art that is authentically you. Art is a birthright, it comes to us instinctively, long ago creativity was intertwined with everyday life, our ancestors left us a legacy, as long as there has been people, we have been making art. Let's get back to individual self expression, get those juices flowing and make some art that takes you on a journey of discovery.
Join me in this 8 week online mixed media program, make the time weekly to focus on you and your creativity, gain the confidence to feel into your own creative process, learn to understand the importance of rituals and sacred space.

I joined Tracy B Brave thinking of myself as a "crafter" (I was very good at following a pattern or copying something visually like a traditional paint night) hoping to learn from her. She told us at that point we were all Artists. Working on my creations with Tracy has brought me a feeling of still and calm in a sometimes too busy crazy world. She has challenged me to follow my vision (and trust me sometimes they are on a pretty big scale and hard to follow) and let it lead me in the process of creating. Tracy guides my vision through her artistic eye without making it her vision. When I create with Tracy it is not exactly like a demo, sometimes it isn't even the same medium I am using, because she encourages individuality and vision. Tracy has taught me to think about perception, perspective and colour story as I create. She has shown me there is no wrong in art but there are techniques that can be utilized to bring your vision to life. I still have many things to learn and avenues to discover with Tracy on my artistic journey. I am an "Artist" on a journey guided by a wonderfully patient and encouraging teacher. I am truly blessed to have Tracy in my life.
There is a saying that says "When the student is ready, the teacher appears." This little nugget sums up how my relationship with Tracy began; newly retired, I was looking for an opportunity to learn how to paint. Tracy, fortunately for me, appeared as teacher, mentor, guide and friend. Tracy is very welcoming, positive and knowledgeable about all kinds of art, as is evident in the way she interacts with her students. She is kind and warm hearted with the ability to bring out the creativity in others. Knowing her and learning from her has definitely enriched my life. I hope to continue to learn more and more about art in the future. Thanks Tracy!
