Mindful Art Studio

Dear Wonderful, Creative You:

Welcome to the Mindful Art Studio Community! You’ll be getting my weekly newsletter with all the details about each week’s slow drawing class, as well as creative inspiration, blog posts, classes and retreats. 

Two important things for you to do: 

1. Be sure to put amy@mindfulartstudio.com in your address book so I don’t end up in your spam.

2. Check the Slow Drawing Replay page to see if this week’s is still up. (Wednesday – Friday)

You will find some of my favorite free tutorials and resources below!

Creatively Yours,

Amy

start creating now!

My Slow Drawing Parties are live on Facebook, and then stay up on replay both on my site, and on Facebook for 48 hours. You’ll find a listing on my Facebook events page of all the upcoming Slow Drawing Parties. YAY! Let’s draw!

You can also check my replay page to see if that latest workshop is up (Wednesday 4pm – Friday 4pm EST).
