Exploring imaginative possibilities in an Altoid box
 
What is going on in your life right now? What will bring you joy and comfort and fun. What images do you love? Is there a symbol, plant, animal, tree, bird etc. that is significant to you at this time?  Is there something emerging in your life that you would like to amplify by creating a little altar or shadow box.
 
We will be creating a traveling altar or a shadow box scene using an Altoid box. I have lots of great images, but you may have a charm, some beads, little images, or something you would like to have in the box that is will help you embellish your box. Think of something that is empowering to you, or significant to you or, just makes you feel good.  
Have comfortable clothes for art making, wear clothes that you can get glue, paint, and ink on. 
Bring an apron.
We will take 45 minutes for lunch. You can bring a lunch or eat out.
