Happy New Year! Let’s kick off 2020 ‘old-school style’ as we create colorful (paper) calendars perfect for your office, classroom, kitchen, or creative space.

In this workshop, you will receive:

  • Guided instruction as you learn to use bits of color and personal mark-making to represent the ‘bits and quirks’ of your life
  • Guided coaching to help you set goals, make plans and find your focus for the year ahead
  • 12 months of blank calendars on premium paper + room for notes
  • a variety of shared paints, tapes, and inks to choose from as you create your one-of-a-kind, it’s-all-about-you calendar
  • 3 hours to relax, laugh, make new friends, enjoy coffee, set goals, and make plans on your new ‘old-school’ calendar
  • a special New Year’s gift (my Thank You for helping RobinLK Studios welcome 2020!)

In this workshop, we will:

  • Talk goals (personal? professional? both?) for 2020
  • Make plans for 2020
  • Decide on a ‘focus’ word or phrase for 2020

By the end of our workshop, you will have:
– 12 places to set goals
– 53 opportunities to make a difference
– 365 reasons to smile

…. and one focus word or phrase that will become your mantra for the year.

You will enjoy uncomplicated instruction, plenty of time to paint, ink, doodle, sip, and laugh – all with support and friends, new and old.
