Why do I pursue an artsy life?

I vividly remember the moment I decided to drop art in high school. My grade 9 art teacher pointed out that I hadn’t drawn a tree "correctly" and I thought, “Forget this! Obviously I’m no good at art and, anyway, it's so boring.”

Although I grew up in a creative environment with supportive parents who told me I could do anything, it took me years to see “art” for what it really was — not just a bunch of soulless techniques, but a joyful, fulfilling way to live!

My dream is to help you live an artsy life. The creative energy and beautiful connections that happen in my mixed media art workshops are the same experiences I want to share with you in my Good Morning Artsy Life! online artists' membership + community.

Life can be both beautiful and heart breaking. I'm thankful to be a breast cancer survivor. Many dear friends have not been so lucky. I have a heightened awareness of how precious life is... how important it is to live your life authentically, in a way that allows you to be who you really are. I want to help you to live this way.

I see it in the delight my sweet grandson shows when he is creating a beaded bracelet. He's lost in the process, then thrilled with what he's made. There's joy and love in the making that can't be expressed in words. His autism is no barrier when it comes to art and creativity. We all need to communicate through our creativity — it's as natural as breathing!

  • “Holly Dean genuinely cares about the participants and helps us along with gentle reinforcement. She provides great ongoing on-line support to help us learn... The group interaction is also very stimulating.”

    Joan Baker

What is the best decision for you?

I believe we all have a strong, basic need to explore and create. When you give yourself permission to play, to be child-like again, you discover who you are. Magic is invited in. The Good Morning Artsy Life! Membership is a safe, supportive place where you can be vulnerable. Is it for you?

What makes this online art community different from others?
The emphasis is on the sharing of ideas, questions + answers, techniques + skills. Everyone is encouraged to participate... The more you take part, the more you grow.

Are you going to share your techniques?
Absolutely! I believe in being generous in sharing what we know and how we do things.

Will I be able to do this if I’m hopeless with social media?
Yes! I will teach you the skills you need to navigate the membership, Facebook, and more.

So, IS the Good Morning Artsy Life! Membership for you…? 

flourish.jpg

You lack motivation to get started. You make art because you have to — it's who you are! But you're having a hard time putting any of your ideas into action... it just doesn't seem to happen! It’s like you drum the fun right out of it with too many expectations.

You're looking for a teacher who will ignite your passion for art. You don’t just want to learn techniques — you want to view the process, and be excited about what your doing.

You're longing for more art time. Life commitments can be so overwhelming! You feel like art is an indulgence — so it keeps getting put on the back burner.

You're overwhelmed with the process of taking your art online. You need a website, social media presence, you need to learn how to take high quality photos... and then there's marketing!

Sound familiar?
You're ready to Thrive Like An Artist!

  • “Holly's teaching style suited me perfectly and I can’t wait to learn more and especially to create more! Her guidance and calm approach was exactly what I was looking for.”

    Beryl Green

Why I created the Good Morning Artsy Life! membership…

Living an artsy life isn't just about art. It's about finding beauty in everything — enjoying the planning, preparing and eating of a beautiful meal, feeling the connection to the earth while working in your garden, breathing in the heady scents on a walk through the woods, sharing memories and laughs with a cherished friend...

 

For over 16 years, I’ve been helping fellow artists and creative souls to rediscover the joy that comes from allowing yourself to play, explore and express who you really are. You really do deserve this!

 

Are you ready to live an artsy life?

  • “I just felt the need to write and thank you for another great class this morning. What you offer is much more than art classes - you give friendship, therapy, confidence, vision and recognizing the beauty in everything. Thank you for being there!!”
