TAKE-Away Art ProjectsAs a major response to the Covid-19 lockdown and with respect to social distancing, I transformed projects that would have been what kids made in art camps. To see what kids have created so far, head to this link

According to the Chinese Zodiac I was born during the Fire Dragon year of 1976:
They are gentle in manner, diligent in work, independent in life, and they have the enthusiasm and determination to do things well. They have outstanding working and management abilities and creative opinions, so they are born with leadership.

PORTRAITURETitle of piece: Derek Acorah (in soft pastels)
Drawing portraits is truly my very first love. This portrait represents my favourite medium as well as my interest in psychic mediums.

ASTROLOGYStrengths: Generous, idealistic, great sense of humor.
Sagittarius likes: Freedom, travel, philosophy, being outdoors
Curious and energetic, Sagittarius is one of the biggest travelers among all zodiac signs. Their open mind and philosophical view motivates them to wander the earth for truth and justice
COVID-19 RESPONSE: May 16 The Inspiration Studio remains on public lock-down until June 30th. With regard to art camps,
until there is some leniency on social distancing within small spaces, these will remain on hold
And still, no one but myself and my dogs have been in my Studio since March 20th.
KIDS ACTIVITIES: Take-Away Art Projects are separately bagged and placed in my Treasure Box on my doorstep for pick up.
Time and date are decided upon when purchasing. There are also now free downloads and video tutorials uploaded on my
@inspirationstudiokotoks IGTV channel and the Studio's FB Page as well as on this site.
