Give Art = Give Freedom

I've been sitting with this dream for a few months, and my math-husband has given me the thumbs up: 
ALL of December's MT Art profits are going to IJM!!

The International Justice Mission is an influential non-profit org that fights human trafficking on a global scale. I have a burning passion to use my art to bring freedom to victims of human trafficking and slavery. If you've purchased any MT Art items this month, THANK YOU for helping me help them.

Advanced Art Journaling

(A 3 week class for students who are already practicing Art Journal folks.)

By popular demand, we’re offering a course on how to alter an old book to create a new art journal. We will learn advanced techniques on book prep and page prep. In combination with this, Mandy is going to share a mini-series on Gratitude. This mini-series will guide you into the practice of gratitude, with personal stories of how gratitude has changed Mandy’s inner life, as well as prompts and tips on how to keep your very own gratitude list or gratitude journal. The point is: You really can change your mind, in deep and lasting ways.

“During a season of depression, Mandy recalls that defining day when her therapist referred to her ways of interpreting the world as “the ways of the artist.”

It’s no secret that my artistic approach is one of solitude and reflection. It is a reservoir of respite for my soul, and keeps my inner landscape in balance. This is why I’m so passionate about teaching art journaling classes at our local paint your own pottery studio (Color Me Happy). Cyle’s beautiful writing seemed to call that passion right out of me. Her interview questions dug down to the reality of why art is a core element of my life. My need for artistic expression came pouring out of me.

The result gave me a new take on the power of art in my own life, as well as how my art might impact others along the way. I’m grateful to be featured in the mag, and would love to share the article with you here if you’d like to take a glance:
