We have reopened the free enrolments to Kasia's Advent Calendar from 2018 and 2019.
Even though both of these offerings were created with busy December in mind, they are relevant now too. During this challenging time, use them as a way to establish your daily healing art practice and take better care of your well-being.
In December, more than during any other month, we need a breather.
In the craziness of Christmas preparations it's easy to forget about what's most important.
We feel the pressure to purchase things, to get our houses ready for Christmas, to meet the expectations, to see people, to go places, to have piles of long to-do lists that never end. Some of us may also feel pressured to reflect on the past 12 months - what we've achieved and what we have failed at.
This year I don't want to let myself fall into that stressful race and I decided to pay more attention to my art and things that really count during this busy, but also glorious time of the year.
I thought, maybe there are more of us?
Maybe you would like to join and squeeze in some me-time into this hectic month? What about clearing our minds of tasks and commitments, once, daily? Let's relax and look into ourselves, let's give our minds and bodies a chance to recharge and let's do it with art.
Here's our free offering for you - brand new Kasia's Advent Calendar. Just like in a traditional Advent Calendar you will be getting a little treat every day: an inspiring prompt in a video form from Kasia + a time-lapse clip of her art journaling process. The prompts are wide and versatile.
Also, just like in a traditional Advent Calendar there will be 24 days of prompts because these 24 days are the most challenging and difficult to get through peacefully. It's a countdown and the most beautiful preparation of yourself to the big Christmas Day. This is your challenge to pay more attention to daily art making, mindfulness, self-care and having some pure fun in this hectic time.
The registration is open only until the 5th of December so don't hesitate and enroll for FREE* right now. Everyone is welcome, whatever your skill level is and whatever your preferred techniques are. Come and join right now and let's all meet together to make some art.
*This course is free and everyone can join, but this year we ask you to donate to our Charity Fundraiser.

You can donate from anywhere in the world, whatever your currency. The Fundraiser shows the sum in GBP, if you donate in different currency it will be automatically converted and added to the pot.
Here's the thing: Christmas is coming, but not for everyone. There are people who need our help and there's no better moment to give them support than in December. Let's send those in need a big, virtual hug and a few pennies. Whatever you can contribute counts, even just $1. Please click here to donate and then come back to this website and enrol yourself in this Advent Calendar. Let's make this fundraiser sack huge! Let's see how much we can raise through our love for art journaling. Share this website with others so they can contribute too!
If you feel like this year you're in need yourself and you can't contribute to the fundraiser, enrol in the Advent Calendar for free anyway. We will make you feel loved and supported and we'll also make sure that you enter the New Year with a sense of calm and peace. But please share our Fundraiser website with your friends and family.

Here's who we are raising money for this year:
Action Against Hunger is a global humanitarian organisation that takes decisive action against the causes and effects of hunger. In 2016, Action Against Hunger's global network helped over 14 million people in over 50 countries worldwide, saving the lives of malnourished children and providing communities with sustainable access to safe water and good nutrition.
Together with my husband Jamie I am a founder of Everything Art. Capturing the moments and sensations is everything to me - my language is art. I paint, collage and art journal to figure out my past, my present and future. I scribble, spill, tear, paint and write to let the emotions out. I ask questions and work out my answers through colour, texture, patterns and dynamic connections between contradictions. I'm allowing myself to put together rough and smooth, bold and subtle, quiet and noisy. I teach mixed-media in-person and online since 2011 and everyday I'm grateful for this opportunity to have my dream job.
