    Classes are not only for world travellers, but also for hometown travellers. Join me to learn to explore the world around, gaining inspiration for your art, scrapbooking, photography, art journals, writing and more.

  • Crafting

    Beginning crafters to professional artists are welcome here to find new ways of seeing your art form, learning new skills and mediums.

  • Storytelling

    Tell your life's story in a unique way to you through art, photography and journaling.

In this newest course from Lauren Likes, learn to how to find inspiration that speaks to you, create a journal to capture your inspiration while you travel and then translate it into new works of art that are uniquely yours.


This course is for beginning artists and experienced artists who aren’t quite sure how to gather and transform inspiration versus copying other people’s styles and ideas. We will walk through hunting for inspiration at home and abroad to build a skill set to help you continually sift through the noise of every day and hone in on the elements of the world around you that interest and inspire you.
