What to do with the summer? If you're a mom you've probably already lined up VBS, a sports camp or two, a trip to the lake, family vacations, and maybe some playdates. All for your child. What about you? What are you going to do that's enjoyable this summer?
What about enrolling in an online art class? I've found a few that look really amazing and promise to challenge and grow you as an artist. Take a look-

Flying Lessons: an e-course from Kelly Rae Roberts
Here's a brief part of the class description:
"What I’ve learned in the last few years is that we can propel ourselves into living our dreams with successful creative businesses with two must haves: inspiration + tips. And that’s exactly what Flying Lessons is all about. Inspiration comes from sharing the stories of our creative journeys so that we can begin to dismantle all the misconceptions of what the creative life looks like. It means getting our hearts engaged in the business side of what we do. It means connecting to, and acknowledging, all the layers of our creative lives – our joys, successes, and downfalls."- Kelly Rae For the full description click, here.
Class starts on May 30th and runs for 5 weeks. Cost is $100.
PS: I think this is the one I'm going to spend my birthday money on. ;)
