Beyond Stick Figures Pt 2 Extended; You Can Draw!


with Evelyn Nitzberg, SWA

Calendar Next available session starts Jan 9, 2024 at 5:30 pm, runs for 4 weeks

The emphasis during this series will focus on implementing the Element of LINE to create SHAPE and the application of TEXTURE and VALUE to create the illusion of three-dimensional depth on a two-dimensional surface using a range of hardness of graphite and white and black charcoal.

Everyone has an artist in them.  Young children make ART naturally.  Rediscover your creative process.  When discussing art-making with others, so many have said to me, "All I can draw is stick figures."  You CAN draw more than stick figures!  Drawing and making ART is a matter of having encouragement and the opportunity to rediscover YOUR creative potential in a guided, safe, and non-judgemental environment.

There is a $25 materials fee on the first night of class.

Materials fee for "Beyond Stick Figures" returning students: $10

Make 2024 the year you quit cigarettes!

Learning self-hypnosis to quit smoking is easier than you think!  This stop-smoking program has been a proven success used in my therapy practice to help people quit smoking since 1998.  The course teaches you the basics of modern hypnosis, and how to use hypnosis techniques to change smoking habits and eliminate withdrawal symptoms, anxiety, and weight gain worries.  Even if you started smoking decades ago as a teenager, this program can help you quit.  This is modern smoke cessation.


INCLUDES: 55pg Ebook "Successfully Stop Smoking in 14 Days' step-by-step guide to techniques with a sample hypnosis audio script (audio recording) to stop smoking.  Plus coaching support.

BONUS:  a 30-minute (in class) hypnosis therapy session to jumpstart your goal to quit smoking. (you can record for reimforcement therapy at home).
