July 2012 Newsletter

July Update

Hello! Welcome to the inaugural Self Esteem Through Art newsletter. I hope this email finds you well and enjoying a more leisurely summer pace. This will be the forum for periodic updates, news stories, class offerings, and specials. You are receiving this newsletter because you have either been directly involved with the Self Esteem Through Art program, or have expressed an interest in experiencing future offerings. Thank you for being here and being a part of this incredible year-long journey. I invite you to take a few minutes to catch up with what has been going on and what is to come in the near future.

A Clear Vision

This program is steadily growing and lives are being changed along the way. There is tremendous value in being able to boost someone’s self esteem and encourage them to honor their uniqueness through artful exploration. As the program progresses, I have some very clear goals: I want to bring this program to battered women and children, be a guest speaker in schools, and work more with adults who have lost themselves while chasing something else (careers, kids, etc). I also have a program for seniors percolating in my head. Please provide feedback and let me know where you see value in this program. My vision is to inspire thousands in this journey, and your ideas are always welcome!

bringing a bucket list to life

Bucket List

The Bucket List has been a very popular class offering this summer. We have held a class with this theme, hosted a local mother/daughter fundraiser, and this project will be making an appearance at next week’s summer camp. To read more about how the project was created, check out the in-depth article over at Zujava. Enjoy! http://www.zujava.com/a-birthday-and-a-bucket-list

Upcoming Summer Camp

Beginning on July 30, I am running a camp at the Woodshed Gallery in Franklin. This camp is for children ages 5-12. Registration is technically closed, but there were a few openings and I bet Bruce would let you in if you asked. For more information and for Bruce’s contact information, view the events page.
