No need to be an artist or a writer to jump into and find the magic of Ojai…just have fun seeing, drawing, doodling, or writing in and around town. Create your OWN unique picture postcard memories of your visit by pausing to jot or sketch down what you see and experience of the unique downtown village of Ojai! Meeting in Downtown Ojai, we will be walking a bit, then sketching a bit, experiencing the village scene by "doing" quick and loose sketching or journaling. Walking to spots unique to Ojai: Stroll by the Ojai Valley Museum: A lovely historic site and building with its welcoming courtyard to take notes or photos. Then down to the Ojai clock tower: The post office is home to a Spanish style bell tower; chiming on the hour marking the main street stucco arched arcade. We will stop to sketch at Libbey park: View of the main arcade, ancient oaks, park fountain, and your photos! On to draw the back arcade walkway: A paved "river" style small walkway with shops, imbued with art itself. The Porch Gallery: We relax, take in art, and draw on the Porch of this art gallery! End of tour: End your quick sketch tour with coffee or a cool tea at Java Joes to share and say our goodbyes.
Il tuo host
I left the bustling world of international advertising agencies as creative director to become a quick sketch artist who draws out the heart of nature and business. I am a "Heartist" with my talents of literally drawing out the true essence of business', communications, ideas, retreats, and environments. Having my own art studio as well as my fine art in shows and galleries, I love to teach the art of "seeing". Teaching both fine art classes in studio and "ala" nature, I am a Certified Interpretive Guide for nature conservancies. Having a BFA in Fine Art as well as being author and illustrator of my best selling book, "Fur Shui", art and creative writing journaling is my passion. To help people make connections to their own nature and their environment is my aha moment! And, as a Hawaiian shaman, the spirit of aloha is in all I do!

Dove ti troverai
We will do a “sketch crawl”: quick loose sketch & journaling; walking to and pausing at unique city sites from West end of downtown to the small city center's East end. From Ojai's historic Museum to main street Spanish Archways into oak filled Libbey park, & arcade walks splashed in art. Last stop we relax on the Porch of an art gallery (you may just meet the owner and view a show), then across the street to share some coffee, tea, and our art.
