The Black Page 

Friday, June 19th, 5 – 7 PM EST

This class is for you if you’d like to sit down and know what you want to create.

This class is for you if you drool over those beautiful patterned pages, but can never seem to make them yourself.

This class is for you if you want to do art journaling, but need help making time for it.

This class is for you if  you want a simple, but flexible recipe that will help you explore mindful art making in your own unique way.

This Friday night masterclass is an art date extraordinaire!

We will play with black paint, white pens, color, pattern, and words, and find tons of ways to combine these simple techniques in YOUR unique way. 


What if you could create with me in a live masterclasses and walk away with 1 – 3 art journal pages you love after just two hours?


What if you had 3 – 5 “tricks” that would help you say all that is in your heart through words, images, and patterns? 

I’m Amy, an art therapist turned art facilitator who loves to help artists make more powerful, playful, and joy-filled art. Let me show you what I have in store for you.

Come make an art date with me! Let’s embrace the mystery of darkness and the hope of light.  

+ Create an opaque, shiny black background to make your images, patterns, and words stand out.

+ Learn to use mindful pattern drawing to create beautiful, organic forms. 

+ Re-work “messy” art journal pages into clean, crisp images.

+Express and record feelings using lettering and journaling techniques.

+ Stop fearing the blank white page, and embrace the mystery.

If for any reason you cannot make it, however, these masterclasses are recorded, and you’ll have lifetime access.

My Art Tribe

“I really enjoy group art work and have a difficult time finding others. Sometimes we have to go a little further to find our tribe which the internet has successfully been able to do. 🙂 My own creativity has been sparked. Friday’s retreat grounded me in knowing that creativity does not need to be bogged down by supplies. In using a few good quality items we were able to get off the ground to engage in the creative process of mystery. Thank you for that.”

– Pamela Swafford

Vulnerability is strength

“I like how so many of us women are now able to come to the table together and not make excuses for what we are producing. I used to think that being vulnerable could be a weakness. Now I look at vulnerability in my art more as a strength. I am ‘allowed’ to be vulnerable to my art. It makes me stronger. My art feels stronger. I am happier with my art as well. There is strength in women!”

– Deborah Wakefield

A PLAYshop!

“Thanks so much for a fruitful ‘playshop.’ The group was so generous and keen to try all you had to offer. The pump is primed!”

– Anne O’Connor

Just Do It!

“This morning’s retreat was enjoyable, fun and important for me. Thank you for guiding me to open myself to uncomfortable art exercises.  I was able to ‘just do it’ and the thumbnail practices have showed me a way to both make art on a daily basis and to go further with my art.”

– Rita Reid


nourished & Inpspired

“Thank you sooo much for the wonderful experience, I was nourished and inspired throughout the afternoon, and got so much out of the retreat. I am taking away permission to create and make mistakes (my oops!) and am incorporating more sketching, noting, and playing into my days.”

– Lynn Pollack


Be Less Concerned with Perfection

“You provided a sense of community with kindred spirits, a light-hearted playful spirit, and a sense of safety that promoted no self-consciousness or criticism. What I learned about myself…to just “see” and be loose and less concerned with perfection.To avoid taking “art” to a place that is tight, serious, self-inhibiting, and discouraging.”     

– Susan Bottorf

Do I need prior art or drawing experience to participate?
No, whether you’ve never drawn before, or you are an experienced artist, this day-long retreat is structured to provide you the space to learn to see in new ways, and opportunities to translate those new visions onto your journal pages.
Are the materials provided?
You will provide your own materials. Our goal is to take advantage of the simplicity of only using pen and watercolor to focus on nature’s beauty and the mindful process.
What is your refund policy?
No refunds will be granted, regardless of reason. If I have to cancel for any reason, your money will be refunded.
What kind of internet connection do I need?
You’ll need a strong internet connection and the camera and microphone that are built into your device. You may also want headphones to help reduce noise.
