Calligraphy Courses for Self-Care

ART CLASSES FOR CONSCIOUS CREATIVES & HUMANS SEEKING TO LIVE WITH INTENTION AND IMPACT

 

Connect with your heart.

Belong in Community.

Grow a meaningful life.

I see you… You’re in the right place if:

  • You’re hungry for a nourishing creative outlet because you’re running on empty. You miss the creative adventures you explored earlier in your life.
  • You’re craving connection with other creatives. Learning on your own isn’t as fun as it is in community.
  • You lack confidence as a beginner in how to learn calligraphy. You have no idea where to start.

No matter where you are in your creative journey, I invite you to join me for a calligraphy workshop where lettering becomes a tool for mindfulness, community building, and social impact.

Come and show up for yourself (bring a friend if you like!), have fun, and refresh your heart with the creative tools to live an inspired and intentional life of impact.

Now available online, learn from the comfort of your own home, in real time (not pre-recorded classes). We will give you the immediate individualized feedback saving you valuable time and grief.

Technical Foundations

These workshops focus on equipping you with a foundation of technical tools for all your lettering adventures. With a focus on building your creative confidence in an encouraging environment, perfection police are not allowed.

Beginning with setting intentions and moving to mindful lettering, you’ll leave feeling relaxed after getting into the flow and space of slowness and presence that the practice of calligraphy builds.

Satisfied Students

Justine held a supportive, loving, and inspiring space where I overcame a huge block and fear around creativity, putting down my judgment and simply created. The laughter and fun of the day effortlessly led me over my own hurdles.

I was nervous but Justine really focuses on where you are, not on technical perfection. Getting into the flow and space of slowness, helped me identify it’s something I really need. The heart workshops connected me to the value of building connections and community.
Pam

Project Manager

Justine’s workshops with its conversation and community connected me to my younger self and brought out a whole new side of me. I used to have huge expectations of art, but now I nurture it slowly and regularly. I love how it feeds me and in turn feeds others when I share my creations with others as a gift. I enjoy coming together for a greater purpose, using words as a powerful way to impact others.
