Today, I have some awesome opportunities to share!

I have something very special to share with you today! I’ve been secretly working with an amazing group of teachers to bring you a special set of classes on Mood Boards!!! A mood board is an arrangement of images, materials, text, and textures intended to evoke a particular mood/emotion, style, or concept.
In other words, A mood board is an inspirational way to convey information. :-)
They can be made with any type of art medium, including collage, traditional art media such as watercolor, and even can be done digitally. But, you can learn more about that in our classes!!
We’ve gone all out to create a unique set of 6 classes that you will love! Each class in the set will include at least one mood board lesson. The teachers I’m working with each have their own specialty. Let me introduce them!!
