How Artfix works:

I suggest that you take four weeks, 3 steps each week, to complete the course.  But, of course, it is self paced and you can do it as quickly or as slowly as you like.

A typical week:

1. Watch

You will watch a video (approx. 35-45 minutes)in which I talk about the creative process and share examples, quotes and ideas.

2. Create

You will watch a short  10 minute video that invites you to engage in an art making activity that is designed to help you experience and gain insight into your creative process and the ideas presented in the lecture (Watch) portion of the class. You will create your art (this takes anywhere from 1/2 hour to 2 hours depending on how much you put into it).

3. Reflect

Complete the journalling worksheet about your art experience and share in the classroom with others.

Materials you will need for the class:

one gift box (shirt or lingerie size)

one sheet of watercolor paper

3 small pieces of cardboard 2.5 x 2.5

drawing paper

glue stick


crayons or oil pastels

magazines for cutting out images and words

watercolor paint (a small palette is plenty)

small paint brush

collage materials (buttons, glitter, sticks, papers, etc)–this is only optional

camera (your phone is just fine)


Special talents that you need for the class:

NONE You don’t need to know how to make art or how to paint or how to make something look like something.  You just need a willingness to experiment.

How long with it take me per week to complete all assignments?

Count on about 3 hours.  The class is very flexible and you don’t have to have blocks of 3 hours.  You can do it little by little or all at once.

What kind of experience as a healing professional do I need in order to attend?

I have all professionals from all levels of experience participate–beginning to advanced.  All of them have reported great benefit from the material and experience no matter where they were in their career. Students, trainees, seasoned therapists, retired psychologists, interns, recreational therapists, non-profit employees, private practice therapists…..the variety is wonderful and welcomed.

What if I live outside of the US and want to participate?  Can I?

Yes, ArtFix is open to folks outside of the US.  You just need to be able to view videos on your computer.

What if life gets in the way and I get behind or can’t complete the course quickly?

No worries! The course material will stay up until August 2018 and you will have access to ALL of the material during this time. This means you can even go back and refer to videos and art activities if you need to. You can listen to the call recordings and finish up anything that you didn’t get to.

What is your cancellation policy?

Once you have received your link to the classroom, there will be no refunds available. Remember though, you do have the chance to work with the material at your own pace for the next a year.
