A workshop opportunity for small groups that are open to exploring ways of changing a view of their world. Tucked away in the woods on 2 acres, Steve and Shelley Mayse facilitate creative events in their home/studio that are varied and life changing. Some of the possible workshop subjects are: the painting discovery, print making, collage, the shrine, assemblage, the letter project, SoulCollage, sand tray, figure drawing, design-your-own and others. (no prevous art experience needed).

The workshop space: an artist’s studio space converted for group use, measuring 25’x33’, ample room for up to 18 people to function well within the space. The setting is located on a 2-acre peaceful wooded property with outside elevated decks for creative contemplation.
