“Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your thoughtful planning and excellent delivery during the training this past weekend.  Your generosity of spirit, your clarity and energy as an instructor is amazing to behold and I am so deeply grateful to be working with you.  You are a true educator.”
– UCLArts and Healing Director
“I was one of the attendees of the [sold out] Adult Coloring Workshop and I have to say that I absolutely loved it!  It was fun, relaxing, informative, and I left feeling more energized and ready to take on the rest of the day.”
– UCSD Workshop attendee


I will work with you to design a workshop that meets the unique needs of your group or clientele. Length of time and fees are negotiable to work within your budget. Workshops are typically experiential and are taught at your site.
