Tuesday Art Nights are designed specifically for the busy New York City professional wanting a creative outlet to unwind, destress, create something new or simply learn something new about art or themselves.
Each week is a different theme focusing on you, your dreams and goals – like Crafting your Big Vision, Finding Your Why, Befriending Your Inner Critics and more with a different art project that compliments the theme. Classes can be taken individually or as a series. The classes are designed to take you on an inner journey first and then come out with a strong vision and a plan of action along with a few new art skills under your belt! No more saying,"I'm not creative!"
Tuesday Art Nights (formally Tuesday’s With Kori) have been going strong since 2012 when Kori Burkholder, Career and Creativity Coach started inviting friends over to her apartment to create art. She saw the positive impact it was making in their lives, careers, relationships and business, which led her to become certified professional coach to help others turn their dreams and goals into reality through the mix of coaching and creativity.
Come solo, with a significant other or with friends! Space is limited. No art experience necessary, built for all levels.
1st Tuesday of the Month: Craft Your Big Vision
Mixed Media Collage
Without a Big Vision for your life, career and/or business, you’re walking around blind! Together, we build an inspiring and solid Big Vision so you know where you’re going, making it easier to identify opportunities as they arise – ones that you wouldn’t have noticed otherwise and you’re able to take immediate action! With clarity you become more decisive and able to toss out what doesn’t align with your Big Vision. Once there’s clarity, you want to tell others about it, which is the first step towards making it real!
Creative Project: Mixed Media Collaging –You will learn how to lay out a mixed media art piece, step-by-step and item-by-item. You’ll learn about common materials and how each media within the piece works and interacts with the others.
For you if you’re feeling: uninspired, stuck and needing inspiration in an area of your life.
2nd Tuesday of the Month: Heart of Your Why Block Prints
Let’s face it, chasing our ideas and dreams isn’t always peaches and cream. Knowing your “Why” motivates and gives you purpose, you become more decisive and it can get you through times of doubt. Learn how to tap into the feeling of what it’s like to be living your ideal life and go to this place anytime the journey doesn’t feel so sweet.
Creative Project: Our materials are linolium and ink. We will take the inspiration of your WHY and craft an image that represents the feeling of it. Could it be something in nature? Or an animal? Or even a symbol? You will create several prints of your WHY to share with the world (if you desire) t and find ways to incorporate this expression and freedom into our linoleum block prints!
3rd Tuesday of the Month: Befriending Your Inner Critics
Puppetry: Typically when we are stepping into new territory, like interviewing for a dream job, starting a new business or project, giving a speech, our Inner Critics start perking up, it might feel like anxiety, doubts and fears. I’ll show you how to identify, befriend and transform your Inner Critics into your ally so they’re working with you instead of against you.
Creative Project: Paper Puppets using mixed media.
Getting in tune with your Inner Critic can be healing. We explore this versatile playful tool that can invite and delight your heroic, creative self to explore and discover the inner and outer parts of you. We will create your own Paper Puppet to get know them more intimately, find out what they stand for and befriend them as we’re in the process of building our dreams.
4th Tuesday of the Month: Positive Mindset Workouts Watercolors and Ink
Learn different tools to get you into a positive state of mind. We explore different creative modalities such as how to craft powerful affirmations, explore daily rituals that will inspire you, how to choose empowering music to bring you into higher states and how physical movement can move negative/stuck energy through our bodies.
Creative Project: We want this to be a fluid, easy going experience while you’re learning methods to transform negatative energy as it arises. We will be exploring watercolor and ink on paper to capture this loose energy while learning about color, papers, brushes, drawing and composition that will set you up beautifully to create your own special work of art
