Patti Edmon Altered Attic: It Takes Vision

It Takes Vision

Hopping around, I found Art Alchemy Studio, and an intriguing class about creating vision boards based on the book by Joyce Schwarz. I haven't read the book, but not long after I plunged headlong into the mixed media world, I made a small, quickie (8-1/2 x 11) dream board using magazine phrases and photos that represented what I most wanted in my art and personal (is there a difference???) life. 
I haven't looked to see if any of my deepest longings have risen closer to the surface, but I am interested in Chaska's class, which promises powerful change rather than my cut and paste exercise. Has anyone read the book or taken a class? Results? I'd really be interested in knowing...

I haven't done either but it does sound very intriguing! Let us know if you do end up taking it!

I haven't, but I'd love to see your early vision board and hear how you might change it, or do it differently if you were making one today!

I almost ordered the book this evening, but I just can't this pay, but I do want to get it as soon as I can:) I haven't made an actual vision board, but I've been doing little collages in my sketchbook, mini vision boards I guess (I haven't posted them, but I like to look at it every day, and I'm always looking for new images for when I make a BIG vision board)

Vision board is the perfect tool to help you focus your attention on the goals that you have set for yourself.
