In person workshop in Taos!!

Enchanted Workshop
Taos, NM
Mabel Dodge Luhan House
Historic Inn and conference center

Join me in the historic Mabel Dodge Luhan House October 19-23rd, 2020 for 4 nights and 3 full days of creative time.  I’ll be leading you through painting exercises and break out demo’s each day. We will explore animals that speak to us as well as those we might encounter in magical Taos, NM. Diving into what it means to foster happy accidents by working quickly and channeling our inner child, we will scribble and enjoy the process, not worrying about the outcome. Creating is a part of the journey and every mark and “mistake” should be celebrated. Therein, lies the magic of the creative process. We will create with the mindset of what it means to be free to be YOU.

I have stayed at Mabel’s twice in the last several years and have dreamed of teaching there one day. Mabel’s is a place that holds a rich history of hosting artists and writers such as Willa Cather, Georgia O’Keefe, and Dennis Hopper. The food is incredible. The indescribable rich nostalgia grips at you. That is really the only way that I know how to describe this place. 
Only 11 spots left!

Art Ruin - mixed media journaling





Are you ready to ruin some art? When I have "ruined" my journal or even wood painting is most likely when I like it the best. You might think ruining is easy or hard. And the answer is yes. We will ruin and revive. Taking it too far
So why don't I help you foster the ruining. Foster the "mistakes". Because magic lies in the process, mistakes, ruining, and growing. 
So where do we start in the journal process? We will create our own journals using a simple stitch method. No measuring involved.
I'll give you prompts and ways to begin your journal. I'll show you the tactile process that includes all my secrets and fun tools for scraping and fostering mistakes.







GIVEAWAY!!
winner announced! thank you 
  • I'm going to give away 1 spot. (if you've already signed up, no worries....if you win, I'll refund your money)
  • Please share this blog post link on your blog, pinterest, instagram (tag me if you like: @mindy_lacefield), or Facebook, etc
  • come back here and let me know - leave your name, email address, and how you shared (***your posts will not be published to protect your email for spammers. only I will receive the information to do the drawing)
  • drawing will be done on January 7, 2020

FAQ: 
Is this class beginner friendly ?   This class is for all levels.  My advice if you've never painted faces is to start with  Draw and Paint a Girl  and/or Paint Like a Child journal  before this class. (or at least one of my faces classes)
How long will I have access to the course? Lifetime access. 
Do I need all the supplies on the supply list? No, I am all about using what you have on hand.
Will there be a Facebook group? No sorry. we will share in the classroom and through instagram.

SUPPLY list will be emailed to you upon signup. Using what you have on hand is strongly encouraged. This class is not about having the right or exact products but is all about the process of layering. The most important supplies will be a journal, black china marker, quin. nickel azo gold paint, catalyst no. 6 wedge.
