the BIG news!

might you consider sitting next to me while i study under a master-
all in hopes that i might inspire the artist in you to find
your own creative voice in the process.

i am just crazy for this notion of studying under someone.
watching them and learning from them while they
show you their own way, all in hopes
of helping YOU to find your own path, to your own
process.  i am so excited to see what transpires!
(because i have no idea as of yet, what will 

if you do decide to join us, you will get to travel
with six different teachers, each who will be studying
"under a master" of their own choosing.  

Cori Dantini (that's me)- Mary Blair
Jeanne Oliver- Vincent Van Gogh
Teresa McFayden- Pablo Picasso
Jane Davenport- Frida Kahlo
Gillian Lee Smith- Max Beckmann 

Robin Fingher- Brett Whiteley

would you consider joining us as we become the “apprentice”?

regardless of your ability, there is something to 
learn here, so if this speaks to your heart,
come and join us!  let's take this trip together.

OOx, cori

to teach, or not to teach... (that is the question)

over the past few years i have been asked
to teach various work-shoppy types of things,
and i have ALWAYs declined.  

you see...
i don't think of myself as a teacher (although
i do think i may have many things i could share).  i am blunt.
i am not the most eloquent speaker... i sometimes
have a hard time getting to the point, and 
when i do i often surprise myself with a 
truth i didn't even know i held!

but here is the story... i was recently asked to be 
part of a workshop (details to come), and i totally ignored
the email, because i was so freaked out by it.
what would i have to say about that?  i might sound
dumb?  what on earth would i say....  basically i totally
shut down and panicked, YET i was still
considering it.  you know... so i could "grow".

so i am putting my son to bed one night, and i say
to him, "i have to get up now so i can see if i am really
going to be able to teach this class.  i have research to do...
and i need to tell the nice lady by tomorrow, 
if i am in or not."

"what is it exactly?" Henry asks... so i tell him (again details to follow),
and my smart little guy says, "MOM! that sounds like
a fifth grade report."  and i thought... you, my clever fellow,
are entirely correct!  so i marched to the phone
and called and accepted the challenge.

and now for the past 6 weeks i have been trying to enjoy
summer while freaking out about what i said yes too. 
(my arms actually hurt when i think about it!)
*don't tell...

i keep running into quotes, and words of wisdom
about personal growth and saying yes to things
that scare you.  basically, things that you 
resist and fear should be tackled
as personal growth opportunities.

well i hope that's right,
because i said YES!

(i hope)...


wish me luck- and maybe i'll see you there?
