- ONLINE COURSE - Shelters: Painting the Places that House our Hearts
August 9th, 2019
Join Mary Gregory for her first online course at the Jeanne Oliver Creative Network! If home is your happy place, if buildings of all kinds make you happy, join Mary in this structure-painting course.
Think of the places that house your heart — your home or that of a loved one, your church building or one that has special meaning or memories. Or maybe the one you see in your mind’s eye — your dream-home or a church building that symbolizes your faith. Perhaps a barn or out-building that holds your beloved animals or the place where you do meaningful work.
