    The Art Habit really helped us get past the usual obstacles (not enough time, not enough space, not enough money) and just DO IT! It was so helpful to have curated prompts and inspiration at the ready, and so motivational to see what other families were doing in real time.

    My kids and I enjoyed every minute of the Art Habit. The prompts are easy to do and fun. There are extensions for more fun or older kids.The instructions are clear and easy to read. The community helped me stick to my goals. The support from Rachelle is awesome. I loved the reflection and ‘anchor’ questions in the workbook and the discussion about them on Facebook. Rachelle is really committed to helping you set a habit along the way.

    As a preschool teacher, The Art Habit gave me some wonderful open-ended process art activities to do with my class. It also gave us ideas for sensory play and activities to extend the experiences. Being part of the Facebook group was a great support as you could see how others interpreted the activities and what worked for them.
    Rachelle was a wonderful guide and mentor and I would highly recommend this course to any family or classroom teacher.

    The Art Habit was motivating, inspiring and just so much fun for my kids and for me! Rachelle guided us superbly and the community we created was so helpful and supportive. I would highly recommend this course to anyone that is looking to boost the creative confidence of their children as well as their own.

    Rachelle meticulously maps out open ended art activities that you and your littles will enjoy creating from here on out. Fear and time keep most of us from jumping in to playing with art, and Rachelle gives us permission and the framework we need to be brave. Art Habit will give you the tools to be empowered.

    We loved doing the Art Habit with Rachelle! It has started us on a life long journey to enjoy art and exploration in our house.

    Everything was laid out for us in an easy manner that took a lot of the stress out of the activity and let us enjoy the experience!

    The Art Habit was fantastic for our family! We are big art lovers, but needed the extra boost to create an art habit in our household. Not only does Rachelle lay everything out beautifully for you, but she is also there to support you along the way.

    One of the biggest takeaways I saw in my children was their confidence regarding art. Instead of expecting me to set up an art project for them, now they take the initiative to create and feel confident in what they are doing. I highly recommend the course!

    The Art Habit was exactly what my family needed to bring art into our home on a regular basis! The prompts were very clear which made it so easy to get everything started. By the end, my son wanted to explore on his own and gained confidence in just ‘going for it’.

    We loved the Art Habit! It inspired us to create a process space in the center of our home and to incorporate art into the everyday. Rachelle provides wonderful and easy to implement inspirations, and connecting with other people in the Habit let us inspire and support each other as well.

    My 3.5 year old and I had such a great experience doing the Art Habit together. Before the course, I felt overwhelmed by all of my pins and didn’t know where to start doing projects with my son. The course helped give me confidence, focus and tools. It was definitely worth it.

    My daughters and I love the Art Habit! We created a beautiful space in our bonus room that has allowed us to really enjoy the creative process. The art invitations are easy to implement, and my 7 year old girls always find ways to expand and add their own flare to the process. Highly recommend the Art Habit!

    The Art Habit is truly an extraordinary experience. The depth of connection and support from Rachel and from the online community was so nourishing and empowering. The materials and activities are beautifully, thoughtfully, and lovingly designed. I love to hear my 6 year old twins call themselves artists with joy and confidence, and I love to see them assimilate the ideas and processes gleaned from the Art Habit and apply them independently in unexpected ways. I can’t recommend this course highly enough.
