A free online retreat that encourages and fosters women artists to be their authentic self. Seems a bit much doesn't it? Well I have paid for the ability to be a part of an artistic community that helps foster women to embrace themselves and be the artist they want to be. Frankly I believe that this course and it is free mind you, can be for anyone who needs to focus themselves and their goals. Doesn't have to be about art. Although the process of using art as a way of finding our goals and true self is certainly a part of this.

I imagine you don' t have to keep a journal but being a teacher in my mind part of every process of learning always involved writing. So keeping the journal is a pretty good idea. Including in it some art can help express some things that can't be done with words. Just sayin.

The very hardest part has been seeing my muse or answering some of the questions that we were asked in our class today. I eventually answered the questions but in some ways I am not sure if they are too general.

I so enjoyed the art process it was pretty cool.

So out of the answered questions we were to discover our manefesto for the rest of the class. I developed something eventually. Thankfully it's not a manuscript.
