Hi, I’m Consie Sindet, a creative on a journey. I believe that we should always be learning, growing, trying, failing and embracing the process through it all. While I continue on my journey to try it all, I invite you to come along for the ride. Over my 15+ years of teaching creativity in many forms, I have been part teacher, guide and coach to my students. Before online classes were even a thing, I taught in-person art classes to hundreds of women. Together we played, laughed, bitched and commiserated. They pushed me to continually learn and I encouraged them to continually try.
In 2014, I discovered art journaling and online classes, and a new world opened to me. I have found art journaling to be the most freeing way to express myself. After all, it’s really mostly paint, paper and glue. Nothing precious. Anything goes. Hate it? Turn the page.
My job now is to show you by example through my online classes (and the occasional in-person class!) that you are creative. That you can find freedom, playfulness and joy by slapping down some paint, gluing magazine pages all over a piece of paper, adding some doodling and marks, finding a quote that screams…This is how I feel today!…and calling it good enough.
I am an optimist and strive to find the silver lining in everything. It is not easy but it is possible. I lose perspective sometimes, but I use my creative outlets to help me bring it back. Every time I create a class, an art journal page or any of the myriad of mixed media projects that live inside my head, I learn something new about myself. I would love for you to join me on this journey. Let me be your teacher, guide and coach and show you how to use the creativity that lives inside all of us!
A great conversation with podcaster, Carrie And, that speaks to how I see the world of creativity: Presence, Preciousness and Play with Consie Sindet
