No More Excuses for Not Making Art!

I don't have time. I don't have a space to work. I'm not sure I have all the right supplies. It's not something I've done before. I can't keep the momentum going. I don't know what to make. Do any of these sound familiar? All too familiar for some of us, I'm sure! Well, thanks to Gina Rossi Armfield, you can toss those excuses in the trash!

No Excuses Art and your very own Art and Soul are going to be hosting an awesome giveaway contest — at our Virginia Beach Retreat — for those who take the PLEDGE to give up their excuses when it comes to making art! The prize includes an amazingly handy 85-well spinning palette, exclusive No Excuses books and DVDs, a free Art & Soul class and more!
