It's the May 2020 Art Bundle for Good Giveaway!


Remaining positive and moving forward even in difficult times is important. For a bit, we were not sure this was going to happen, but it is!

Here is another chance to win all 102 art courses and resources if you missed out on Art Bundle for Good #4 this past November. 

It doesn’t cost anything to enter, so don’t miss out. 

The Art Bundle Giveaway only lasts for 7 days, starting today! 

Three lucky winners will have a chance to win the entire Art Bundle for Good #4 including $4,000 worth of art-related courses, workbooks, and other great resources. 

Twenty-five percent of the profits go to support Courageous Kitchen, a Bangkok based charity helping refugees. 

Here's what people had to say about the Bundle:
  • "What I really love about these bundles is that you get emerged in so many ways of working. You see so much more possibilities you can discover and develop. It's like a big basket of creative fruits." ~ Antonyeta D
  • "My thoughts on your ART BUNDLE are ...... it's phenomenal.  I'm very skeptical and usually ignore those types of offers, but it has given me the opportunity to connect with new artists that I would not have found otherwise. It's truly a remarkable opportunity to connect with an art community that might not be found otherwise.  It has provided a fabulous opportunity for learning and inspiration.....and fun!"  ~Julie C.

My courses*, Simple Improv Bookmaking and Gel Printing & Printmaking received rave reviews too!
  • "In this course Mary Beth Shaw teaches how much more you can do with gelli plates and stencils. If you have never used a gelli plate, or think you need to learn more, or think you already know everything about gelli printing then this is a course for you. Mary Beth takes gelli printing and print making to another level and you just have to see what she does with double sided tape." ~Lucy T
  • "well, it is almost impossible to stop once this interaction is exploding right before your eyes! Mary Beth makes it seem like child play and in essence it is so much fun to address it as adult play and engage fully with all those lines, circles and fabulous colors. Totally unique and completely original. Relax, this is your time and enjoy each precious moment!" ~Rita

Soul to Soul Conversation


Join Kathryn Costa from True North Arts and me for a soul to soul conversation on how their creative and soulful practices keep them grounded, peaceful, and creative during these unusual times.
The soul to soul conversation covers:
  • Creating art for self-expression, insight, and healing
  • Integrating spiritual and creative practices
  • The power of living and working with intentions
  • Tapping into the healing power of color and sacred geometry
  • Recognizing the grounding and centering patterns found in the art of all wisdom traditions and cultures
  • Introducing Kathryn Costa's newest stencil from StencilGirl Products, "The Four Gates Mandala" and how to use this stencil to cultivate loving-kindness, compassion, peace, and joy.
