IGNITE Spotlight | 11 FREE Mini-Workshops | From IGNITE 2018 Graduates
One of the most common phrases I say again and again throughout my year long IGNITE Artist Empowerment & Leadership program is teach who you are and share what you know.
The idea that teaching is restricted to a person standing in front of a classroom pouring their knowledge into others does not exist in IGNITE. Instead we believe that teaching is an organic tool that can be applied in many wonderful ways. Teaching can show up as a blog post, a retreat in France, a book that you poured your heart into, a series of paintings around a deep question, an online program, an impromptu lesson on art journaling at the kitchen table, or simply the way you touch others through living your life with meaning and integrity.
In IGNITE we spend one whole year in community sifting through the layers of who we are as artists, what is our innate greatness, and listening closely to the curious callings of our heart. This journey becomes the foundation of our own mission as artists, teachers, and leaders.
Today I am proud to present to you eleven of my 2018 IGNITE graduates that have generously stepped forward to share their mini-workshops they created in IGNITE. Each program was crafted with the intention of serving others through creativity.
What I love most about this IGNITE Spotlight is the diversity of topics and approaches to tapping into one’s creativity. There are no cookie cutter artists in IGNITE. We each stand strong in who we are as artists and we are able to do so — because we stand together.
Please enjoy the IGNITE Spotlight as a gift from us to you!
