Let’s art !

Undoing the stereotypes of artists, and what art is supposed to be, Aarah is more coach than teacher.  Her passion is using art as a hands-on metaphor for exploring life.  By providing a safe environment, wisdom is cultivated and participants better understand their own unique set of strengths, limitations, and vulnerabilities—and then feel free to create.

“The art process is the real teacher—not me. But, you have to show up and be brave enough to be real.” —Aarah

Need a one hour project? perfect.

Three hours? even better.

Prefer private lessons? love them.

Looking for a high quality art experience for your retreat? hi.

Need me to travel? I do.


Workshop Content

Each workshop begins with a conversation about art and the theme. After that, techniques are demonstrated and we get busy.


“I love seeing what comes out. It’s authentic and beautiful. It’s as if something new has crossed over into creation, something that was missing and at the same time, something that has always belonged.” —Aarah

Schools, kitchen tables, barns, garages, and board-rooms. Hospitals, treatment centers, psych units, and waiting rooms. Beaches, mountains, cornfields, deserts, and sidewalks.

a living thing

What is art? What isn’t art?

What my teen students have to say.

Watercolor, Acrylic, Oil, Pastels, ​Ink, Paper Mache, Ceramics, ​Stain Glass 


THEMES & IDEAS


Landscapes -  on site or from photo

Aarah helps her students see more by choosing to focusing on less.


Tree Portraits 

Based on “A person is a tree of the field” (Duet 20:19)
 

Still Life

Learn to paint boldly, and confidently to make your painting look alive. Learn the application of oil (or acrylic) paint—to see and build form—with light, shadow, color and mark. We will walk the line between technique and intuition.

Fruits, Flowers and then some.


Hebrew Letters & Names

They are the DNA of creation. The building blocks of speech. The carriers of our essence. Aarah’s first love was calligraphy at age 10. She is sharing the love. 

What letters are in your name?​

 

Pushka (Charity boxes)

Charity. Kindness. Compassion. It’s for everyone.
