the altered life e-course
it’s been a year in the making. i never expected it to take me that long but it did. turns out translating what i teach in my classes into an e-course was a little more complicated than expected. but it’s finally done! yay!!! thanks to all of you for being so patient. i really appreciate your interest and support along the way. at times it was the only thing keeping me going.
bottom line up front
i decided to just give you the bottom line right up front. i hate it when people who are talking about all the amazing things about their class and all you want to know is the the price. you have to click through numerous pages only to find out that the price is something that you can’t afford right now. arg!
so the price is $99 discounted from $149 (the price will only stay at $99 until the end of the year).
my thoughts behind the price: i charge $25 for a two hour class. this class is the equivalent of six weeks of two hour classes which is $150 (you actually get more in this class than my in person classes). but because i wanted to make it more accessible to the public online i am offering an introductory rate until the end of the year.
there now that i ripped off that bandaid quickly, we can get onto the fun stuff.
the altered life e-course
this is a six week intensive class packed full of techniques, prompts and direction to help you along your path toward healing. art journaling has been a huge therapy in my life and i share with you how art has helped me down this long process of healing. i provide a scaffolding for you to begin your own journey of healing. but like everything in life, you get what you put into it. there will be a lot of exercises to help you down this path, as well as prompts to get you really journaling.
you will also be getting tons of art journaling techniques, how to put them together and my thought processes behind pages. with hours of video, i spell out my favorite techniques to you. along the way, you will hear some of my internal dialogue of what i am feeling during my journal process.
note: this class is for making altered books, but all of the techniques can be used in any art journals.
